On the Centers for Disease Control website about Elective Single Embryo Transfer or eSET, health experts count the risks of multiple births as including:
Some who become pregnant with multiples may find one or more cannot survive to term or even a premature birth. This may lead to a medical need to perform fetal reduction.

Is Elective Single Embryo Transfer, in which the woman or couple chooses to implant only one embryo (instead of multiples) a good way to alleviate this moral hazard?
