Technically, IVF wouldn't be in any legal

danger from a Personhood law defining life at conception. The only thing is that the embryos would all have to be stored until adopted out. I read there are currently about 600,000 frozen embryos. I don't know, that's a huge gray area. I guess it could be argued that the embryo is alive since all it needs is an adoptive mother to one day grow into a grown, human being. That's why I'm not real big on using the 14th amendment with abortion. Is throwing away an embryo in a lab the same as a doctor mutilating a twenty-week old baby with a beating heart? I believe the latter should clearly be a felony. But, that's something that should be discussed in state legislatures, not in the halls of Congress.
