Video: Frozen Embryo Controversy Comes Down To Judge’s Ruling

I am a St. Louis resident and one of the parties to the first Frozen Embryo case in Missouri to go to the Appellate Court.  My Notice of Appeal was filed on June 25.  This case will make law in regards to how frozen embryos are disposed of in divorce.  My case was  on the local news In April but did not specifically state who the parties were.

My case is simple: During our marriage, my ex and I signed an agreement stating that I would get the embryos upon divorce or legal separation.  He admitted to signing the document during the trial and the trial court erroneously decided to not uphold the agreement and not give me the embryos.  I might add that I am also an attorney and the court’s decision is not only baseless but outrageous. Now my two unborn children (siblings of my two current twin boys) are now forced sit in cryofreeze waiting for their fate.  My ex says he does not want them to see the light of day and I cannot reach them without his consent.

At the same time (being so outraged) I, along with my co-founder Rebecca Keissling (Michigan resident), organized a Missouri non-profit called Embryo Defense (whose main mission is to help connect and provide resources for people like me).  It will be the first of its kind in the nation.  My organization made international headlines when we organized and participated in the protest against Sofia Vergara on Hollywood Blvd at the Magic Mike XXL Premiere which was held on Thursday, June 25.
