Enquête nationale sur les questions d’ordre sociétal en aide médicale à la procréation auprès des spécialistes français en assistance médicale à la procréation

Abstract : Objective: the aim of this study was to collect the opinion of French specialists in assisted reproductive technologies (ART), clinicians and biologists, about societal issues in ART and the possible evolution of the legal framework. Methods: descriptive study based on an anonymous multiple-choice survey composed of 15 questions, sent in May 2017 via email to 676 physicians, specialized in ART. The answers were analyzed according to the characteristics of the population (sex, age, specialty, place of exercise and region). Results: the participation rate was 62.6% (407 answers/650 questionnaires sent). French specialists in ART were in favor of the enlargement of an indication for the preimplantation genetic diagnosis (80.1%), social egg freezing (78.6%), compensation for gamete donors (77.4%), anonymity of the donors (92%), ART for lesbians couples (69.8%) and single women (63.4%), surrogate motherhood (54.1%). 48.1% of the participants wished to limit the access to ART for men above 60 years old, and 57% were against ART if the men’s health was impaired. For women, 57.5% were in favor of patient care after 43 years old, and 74.4% in case of oocyte donation in elderly women. Conclusion: french specialists in ART would agree with an evolution of the current bioethical laws in ART concerning social egg freezing, ART in single and homosexual women, genetic screening and financial compensation for donors. But opinions remains divided for surrogacy and they are not in favor of disclosing donors’ identities.
