3. What type of information do I need to answer the research question?
I need information about the different communities and reglious perspectives and views as well as the statistics of the amount of people that would consider or disagree completely with using new technology to assist their pregnancy.
I will need to find information about the different technologies available for pregnancy assists, the processes of these technologies, what the risks of the procedure are and the information that can be identified from them as this will show why parents would decide to use technology. This would then allow me to identify how it may be helpful or harmful it is to the unborn baby. This information will be found in article websites books forums and news reports.

The scope of the information is reasonable as it is an ongoing argument as to if using technology to assist your pregnancy is good or bad. There are many sources on this topic, and if this technology could improve the chances of giving birth if your infertile
5. Given the type and scope of the information that I need, is my question too broad, too narrow, or o.k.?
