Don’t Tell Me I’ll Change My Mind, a rare childfree/antinatalist blog, asks three powerful questions to potential parents.
1. Are you okay with being responsible for giving life to someone who is a violent or immoral person, whose inexistence would have been better for humanity?
2. Are you okay with being responsible for giving life to someone who will face excruciating suffering at the hands of a violent or immoral person? And deal with ongoing suffering that interferes with their ability to function well for years after it is over?
3. Are you okay with being responsible for giving life to someone who may live a miserable existence a lot of the time as a result of uncontrollable/incurable physical or mental illnesses that horribly affect their quality of life?
If not, then you shouldn’t reproduce. Because numerous under-reported statistics on violence, suffering, and illness show that all three are high probabilities when a human is created. Sometimes a human fits into more than one of those categories.
