Bill Gates warns that nobody is paying attention to gene editing, a new technology that could make inequality even worse: "the most important public debate we haven't been having widely enough."

Point taken, and I left out the part where I assumed a "local baby maker" or something may be the one running a commercial business. But also, there will need to be made machines that can do these things, be it the physical DNA-printer or maybe artificial-womb tech as well. Some aspect of this process will need to be commercial, and that vector would probably be attacked through some legal method.. I think?

I'm not necessarily talking about "the next 15 years" but rather "the conclusion" of the concept. Like a server room full of artificial wombs hanging with RGB lighting and tech-nerds monitoring the vitals.. Who would you rather trust to run you server? Nerds or the government? Some day this will be like that, and I'd rather plan things so it works out at that time, rather than letting my kids grow up in a lame dystopia story...
