Attitudes towards assisted reproduction and preimplantation genetic diagnosis
Date:12/17/2008

od and, in that case, select the embryos that do not carry this gene (mean acceptance ranging from 5 to 6.5 points in most countries)

Acceptance scores tend to be highest in all three cases in France, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Israel, and Spain.

The use of this application to select the baby's sex meets with the opposite response. Mean acceptance scores were below 4 points in all survey countries and extremely low (equal to or below 2 points) in Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands and France.

USING SPERM BANKS GETS APPROVAL IN THE CASE OF COUPLES WHERE THE MALE IS INFERTILE

Finally, acceptance of the use of sperm banks to conceive a child by assisted reproduction techniques is also clearly influenced by the goal pursued:

  • In all countries, a majority see using a sperm bank as acceptable in the case of couples wanting a child where the man is infertile. Acceptance scores are highest in Denmark, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.

  • Conversely, the use of sperm banks to select a father who is particularly intelligent meets with widespread rejection. Within this general climate of disapproval, opinions are most hostile in France and Sweden

  • The following scenarios register medium acceptance scores:

    • In the case of women without a partner wishing to have a child, average acceptance exceeds the midpoint on the scale (5) in 7 out of the 15 countries, and stands below it in the rest. The most favorable opinions are expressed in the Czech Republic, Spain, and Israel, and the most unfavorable in Japan, Austria, Italy, and the United Kingdom

    • With the exception of Denmark, the Netherlands, and Spain, average acceptance of the use of sperm banks by gay or lesbian couples is below the midpoint on the scale in all countries. The firmest rejection is expressed in Poland (1.1), Italy (2.4), Austria (2.9) and Japan (3.0).
