Prediction: Twenty years from now, by 2033, Abraham Lincoln will have over one million children.
Starting in 2023, scientists will have mastered creating and manufacturing sperm from DNA. This will be a godsend for men unable to have kids and for female same-sex couples who want children genetically related to both parents.
Some B-list stars will start successfully selling their DNA and this will quickly start a black market for stolen DNA from movie and sports stars. Stealing DNA will become a capital crime but that will not stop paparazzi thieves from following around famous people grabbing stray hairs, skin, etc. to determine DNA. This will lead to celebrities always travelling with bags of remnant hairs gathered from barbershops to throw off the scent of those trying to steal their DNA. In fact, there will be four different DNA sequences on the market all claiming to be those of Justin Bieber.
Because of the confusion around whether a purported DNA strand actually belonged to the claimed person, few people will trust the designer DNA on the market. But a government FOIA request will make public the DNA of all former Presidents of the U.S. that are no longer alive. Millions of mothers all around the world will pay top-dollar for the sperm derived from the DNA of Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, Kennedy, and (oddly) Fillmore.
Former President Lincoln, who had only one child who lived past 18, will quickly become the most popular designer “father” in the world. Over one million genetically related offspring will be born between 2023 and 2033 which will make him the most important contributor to the world’s gene pool since Genghis Khan.
