Below are 20 questions from surveys in the ARDA that attempt to measure this concept.

    • Sometimes fertility clinics produce extra fertilized eggs, also called embryos, that are not implanted in a womans womb. These extra embryos either are discarded, or couples can donate them for use in medical research called stem-cell research. Some people (support stem-cell research, saying its an important way to find treatments for many diseases). Other people (oppose stem-cell research, saying its wrong to use any human embryos for research purposes). What about you - do you support or oppose stem-cell research? (STEMCELL) EXPAND/COLLAPSE
