ATLANTA — A Georgia measure inspired by the mother of octuplets in California that would have restricted the number of embryos fertility doctors may implant likely won’t pass this year.

It would restrict the number of fertilized embryos a woman could create and implant through in-vitro treatments.
The bill went to a Senate subcommittee Thursday for more study. It would have to be reported by Monday to be considered this session and that likely won’t happen.
The bill’s sponsor says he didn’t want Georgia to end up having a case like Nadya Suleman. She gave birth to octuplets after having fertility treatments.
She has six other children and has relied on food stamps and disability income to provide for her family.
A similar bill is pending in Missouri.
