July 19, 2018

(CBS News) – A controversial new Arizona law that took effect July 1 would give Torres access to the embryos. The law requires courts to give embryos to the spouse who plans to use them to have a baby when a couple decides to have a divorce.  Supporters of the law say it will protect a partner’s right to his or her embryos. Opponents say it could force people to become parents against their will. Claudia Work represents Torres’ ex-husband John Terrell. She says the law could have devastating consequences for people like her client.
