Step 6: TWELVE STEPS TOWARD STEM CELL SUCCESS

6. COUPLES WILLING TO DONATE UNUSED BLASTOCYSTS

It was once thought almost no couples involved in vitro fertility procedures would be willing to donate their leftover blastocysts to stem cell research. A new study from Duke University and Johns Hopkins shows just the opposite. At the Berman Institute of Bioethics, Dr. Ruth Faden and Anne Lyerly found that a large majority (60 percent) of infertility patients would prefer to help the new research, rather than discarding, storing, or giving their unused blastocysts to other couples (22% preferred this option).
