Should humans be allowed to reproduce?

3 0 0

You may have read about the man in India who is suing his parents for bringing him into the world without his consent. He wants $1 in damages. This man is an antinatalist - someone who believes that it is wrong for humans to reproduce.

A friend of mine is also an antinatilist. She believes that it is wrong to reproduce because life is mostly unpleasant.

Some philosophers are antinatalists for the same reason. Other philosophers support not having children because the children will eventually die. Still others oppose reproduction because they view humans as a nasty species or because of the harm humans........
