Stanford professor Henry Greely and the author of "The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction" believes that sex to procreate will be annulled in a 20 to 30 years. Instead, the method of creating new life may be simplified to nothing more than a genetic checklist and some skin samples.
Current genetic screening process already allows for scanning for genetic defects and mutations but Greely predicts that a skin sample from female skill will be used to create stem cells, which creates eggs. The eggs are obviously then fertilized with sperm cells to result in a baby. There are some ethical and lawful implications of this process but there's no doubt it could help thousands of parents-to-be with fertility issues.
