Imagine that you are using IVF to have a baby. Suppose that a new service can edit the genes of an embryo to increase the chance that the child attends a top-100 ranked college. The child could pass down these gene edits to their own children. About 3% of high school seniors go on to attend a top-100 ranked college. Assume that you could raise your likelihood of having a child who attends a top-100 college to 5% (from 3%) by using this service. Imagine that this gene editing service is safe and free, and on average it is used by 9 out of every 10 people currently having babies.
How likely would you be to use this service?
