abstract
Interviews were conducted with patients undergoing treatment at the department for reproductive medicine at the University Hospital of Ghent, Belgium to describe how patients think about the use of embryos for science and how patients' views are related to their decision whether or not to donate their supernumerary embryos for science. Most participants knew little about the use of embryos for science. The perception of science and scientists, rather than the perception of the embryo, played an important role in the disposition decision making. The feeling of not having control over what would happen to their embryo and the fear that scientists would allow their embryo to develop into children were the main arguments against donation. This showed the importance of information about scientific research with embryos, such as the 14-day limit to keep embryos alive. Half of the participants pictured the medical team as the requesting party for their embryos and those who were not willing to donate indicated that they could be persuaded when asked directly by their caregivers. In conclusion, this study suggests that the perception of science, rather than the perception of the embryo, plays an important role in the decision to donate for science.
