I've already posted tons of references in the past regarding embryo selection and the use of sperm banks to find intelligent Ashkenazi sperm. Is everyone getting so edgy because I'm posting this on a public forum? It's not like anyone outside the community reads it or anything.
It has nothing to do with concern over who reads it. You are just plain wrong. Maybe if you had any experience with this - which your ignorance shows you do not - you would know.
Many people here are VERY familiar with IVF and some are even familiar with sperm banks. Your facts are extraordinarily wrong. IVF does not select embryos for genetic traits except on the extremely rare occasion when there's a known or suspected genetic ABNORMALITY that would have resulted in miscarriage or infant death or similar. There is no instituted way to select embryos for intelligence or whatnot. The VAST MAJORITY of IVF cases do not involve any kind of genetic testing of embryos. They are simply graded on their likelihood to implant and result in pregnancy, and the ones that appear most likely to implant (based on number of cells and how fragmented they are) are selected.
Furthermore, while sperm banks do allow people to choose more intelligent donors, people can also be selective in dating/marriage which is also "engineering" the children of such union. The advantage sperm banks have is that maybe a woman can get pregnant with a guy who wouldn't marry her in real life. But it's not like anything else is being manipulated or engineered. But beyond that, Ashkenazi is definitely NOT something that sperm bank clients seek out as any kind of general rule. In fact, it is more often avoided than sought out because of the associated diseases. Most sperm banks give other indicators for intelligence, so if intelligence is important, clients can select on grades or test scores or occupation. But they don't select on "Ashkenazi"
