The Iowa Supreme Court has declined to force action in a divorce case in Crawford County involving frozen embryos. The Supreme Court rejected a claim from Tami Witten that the eggs taken from her and fertilized with the sperm from her estranged husband Trip Witten should be under her control. Trip Witten claims the eggs should be put up for adoption by others. The court says permanent custody rights should be based on the original custody agreement, meaning the eggs should be taken out of storage only when both sides agreed.
