In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a way of having babies in which eggs are removed from a woman's ovary, and each egg is combined with a man’s sperm in a medical laboratory. Each fertilized egg is then grown in the laboratory for several days until it becomes a small group of cells called an embryo. One of these embryos is placed in a woman's uterus to create a pregnancy.

Do you personally believe that using IVF is morally acceptable, morally wrong, or is it not a moral issue? (Please choose the answer that corresponds most closely to your view.)

IVF morally acceptable
pivf_embryo_freq1

Imagine that you are using IVF to have a baby. You now have several embryos in a dish and must choose one embryo to create a pregnancy. A new service uses a genetic test on each embryo to predict which one is most likely to result in a child who attends a top-100 ranked college. 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 embryo selection service is safe and free, and on average it is used by 1 out of every 10 people currently having babies.

Imagine that this embryo selection service is safe and free, and on average it is used by 9 out of every 10 people currently having babies.

pivf_embryo_morality

A new service is available to people using IVF who must choose one embryo to use to create a pregnancy. This service uses a genetic test on each embryo to predict certain medical and non-medical traits each resulting child is likely to have. These predictions can then be used to choose which embryo to use.

pivf_gene_freq1

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 1 out of every 10 people currently having babies.

pivf_gene_morality

A new service could one day be offered to people using IVF to have a baby. With this service, before an IVF embryo is transferred to a woman’s uterus to create a pregnancy, the embryo’s genes are edited to increase the chance of the child having certain medical and non-medical traits. With gene editing, segments of DNA are added, deleted, or corrected, and the child could pass down these changes to their own children.

Do you personally believe that using this service is morally acceptable, morally wrong, or is it not a moral issue? (Please choose the answer that corresponds most closely to your view.)

pivf_sat_freq1

Imagine that you have a high school-age child. Many colleges and universities use SAT scores to decide which students to admit. About 3% of high school seniors go on to attend a top-100 ranked college. SAT prep classes allow high school students applying to college to improve their results on the SAT. Assume that you could raise the likelihood of having a child who attends a top-100 college to 5% (from 3%) by using this service. Imagine that this SAT prep service is free, and on average it is used by 1 out of every 10 people who currently have high school-age children.
