I'm curious how the original question was phrased in the survey for the response "63% think medical advances that prolong life are a good thing, but 32% considered such technology as interfering with the natural cycle of life" because technically those statements are not mutually exclusive. Unfortunately the source page also phrases it similarly: "the public tends to view medical advances that prolong life as generally good (63%) rather than as interfering with the natural cycle of life (32%)." Though I think it was obvious to the participants that it is not asking whether technology does or doesn't interfere with the natural cycle of life, it is asking where or not the effect is "generally good". (If natural is being asserted in the second choice then it seems to imply the belief in the appeal to nature.) -- Adgitate (talk) 17:24, 6 May 2016 (CDT)

Is this not captured anywhere in the Pew study? Deku-shrub (talk) 18:40, 8 May 2016 (CDT)
