The basic premis is that since children can not give consent to be born, it is immoral to force a life upon someone. A few point's I've come up with of my own:
Giving birth to children is normally done in order to satisfy the parents selfish desires, rather than considering the ethicality of bringing an existence into being, and the consequences it entails.
When you point out to people that as long as people are giving birth, a certain percentage of those children will end up suicidally miserable (close to 40,000 people a year commit suicide in the US), they tend to think that suicidal people are just the price we have to pay in order to have happy people.
Another point, in order for there to be happy people, some must suffer intensly, and so the price of happiness is directly paid for by other's suffering. How can people live with this?Every 40 seconds someone in the world takes their own life, a global tally of more than 800,000 suicides a year, according to a landmark United Nations report on the subject.
The research found that suicide killed more people each year than conflicts and natural catastrophes, accounting for more than half of the world's 1.5 million violent deaths annually, World Health Organization staff told reporters at its presentation in Geneva.
Giving birth is taken so lightly, when in fact it's a god-like ability.
My conclusion is that, given a lack of choice at life, why do people have a right to judge the actions of other people what-so-ever? Does not a lack of choice at existing completely dismiss people of any liability, or consquences for their behavior and actions? I would think so.
