Washington DC- “We applaud the WNBA for providing comprehensive family building benefits to their veteran players. Like all employees, female athletes deserve the opportunity to build their families, and to have access to whatever services they may need to assist them as they do it.  The WNBA is doing the right thing by their employees and we commend them for providing this essential benefit, and for being a great exemplar for other employers.  The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is committed to promoting access to care for patients in need, and welcome other institutions, like the WNBA, who share that commitment.”
