I'll Let Dr. David Benatar Explain This One

You can find the full piece Right Here
Dr. Benatar explains much better than I ever can that it is wrong to bring life into the world, in other words it is wrong to have children. Below is the last paragraph because it pretty much sums it up:


What does follow, I think, from the conclusion that life is not good, is that we should not create more of it. When we bring new people into existence we start more lives that are not good – and we necessarily do this without the permission of those who will live those lives. We have no duty to create new people and failing to create people can do no harm to those we fail to create. Not having children might make our own lives less good, but starting lives that are not good, merely for our own gratification, is unduly selfish.
Thank you Dr. Benatar.
