It still will take awhile before they can show that an actual living baby can survive this entire process. However, even so, I think it's great. Unwanted babies are a problem for everyone (especially the baby!) Wanted babies will in theory cause less unwanted babies. Healthy babies are happier than unhealthy ones. All of the tech coming up will also allow same sex couples to have their own babies (except for the need of a womb in some cases). To me this is all progressive and helpful to future generations.Surprisingly, no. Using CRISPR and other technologies may make it viable - and soon - to create a baby's genome directly on a computer, and send that directly to an artificially created embryo in a single process.
Right now it's skin cells -> embryo but it doesn't seem far fetched to create nucleus free stem cells directly using something like 3-D biological printing, then add whatever genome you want to add directly to it. Then let it replicate.
