This question really depends on how society produces these embryos and what is the purpose for the people they produce. Huxley's vision is a dystopian view of genetic engineering. Babies are made to perpetuate state ideology and function. People are made for specific functions rather than being individuals free to pursue their own potential. This makes human life a commodity that perpetuates consumerism and lack of individual thought: the end result being complete control by the state.
