Embryos at center of Texas divorce case
by UPI

AUSTIN, Texas - A divorce case soon to be heard by the Texas Supreme Court will focus on the future of three frozen embryos the couple helped create years ago.

While Augusta and Randy Roman initially agreed to create the embryos in their efforts to become parents years ago, Randy's sudden change of mind led to a legal fight regarding the embryos' use, the Los Angeles Times said Sunday.

Randy, who opposes the procedure based on moral grounds, wants the embryos that are still viable to be destroyed or simply remain frozen.

Augusta previously won a county case that would allow her to use the embryos, but Randy opposed the court's decision and was rewarded with a Texas Court of Appeals ruling blocking the medical procedure.

Augusta then took that decision to the state's Supreme Court as part of the 46-year-old's attempt to become a mother.

The Times said the case could potentially undermine the state's famed Roe vs. Wade case and eventually make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
