Center for Policy and Leadership

The ASRM Center for Policy and Leadership (CPL), established in 2020, builds on ASRM’s longstanding role as a leading policy voice on Capitol Hill and in state capitals. The CPL is a non-partisan think tank with a goal to advance reproductive medicine worldwide, through thoughtful investigation of administrative and legislative challenges facing our field, and to develop analyses to overcome these challenges.

ASRM has long served as the leading voice and authority on reproductive medicine at every level of government. The CPL exists to deliver, for ASRM members, policymakers, members of the media, patients, and others, critical information, and analyses on the impact of reproductive policy on patients and providers. CPL’s initiatives are designed to inform decisions that directly affect both who has access to, and how providers deliver, the care and services they deserve. The CPL is also committed to providing tools, training and resources designed to develop future leaders in the field.

The ASRM Center for Policy and Leadership (CPL) has released reports concerning States' Abortion Laws and their Potential Implications for Reproductive Medicine. Current as of the date of publication, the reports provide an overview of states’ abortion laws, together with analysis of potential implications for reproductive medicine, including IVF.
