Currently, Poland has no laws to regulate IVF. But, “[l]awmakers from the ruling center-right Civic Platform (PO) party have prepared two rival bills, one relatively liberal and a more conservative one that would only allow the procedure only in a limited number of cases.” The bills up for debate range from a complete ban on IVF to state co-financing of IVF procedures.
Colorado - Amendment 62 causes concern for fertility doctors:
This November voters will have another chance to decide on an amendment that aims to define when life begins.
Amendment 62 is the second ballot initiative of its kind in two years.
But this time around opponents say the wording is just too vague.
A yes vote on amendment 62 will determine human life is created at conception and should have the same rights and protections as anyone that's been born.
Supporters of the measure took to the corner of 12th and north Sunday.
Frozen Embryos - I found this interesting article, which I thought was timely since The Surrogacy Lawyer Radio Show with Dr. Craig Sweet, who is big proponent of embryo donation.

Robert Edwards (pictured) of Britain won the 2010 Nobel Prize in medicine for developing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Edwards, an 85-year-old professor emeritus at the University of Cambridge, started working on IVF as early as the 1950s. He developed the technique - in which eggs are removed from a woman, fertilized outside her body and then implanted into the womb - together with a British gynecologist.
IVF - Dr. Edwards, the British physiologist whose work led to the first "test-tube baby," won the 2010 Nobel prize for medicine or physiology, the prize-awarding institute said on Monday. It is an honor to see him being noticed by the committee for his contributions to so many families. As a board member of the American Fertility Association, which awarded him at our 2002 Kokopelli Ball with the first Robert Edwards Scientific Award, I am pleased to see that others are also beginning to notice.
