Children
Posted 7/2/07
Recent events , as I have noticed them , are showing that men and women world wide are choosing not to marry or bring forth progeny , or even when they do choose to do so , find themselves without the ability .

Such events include:
Japan`s declining birth rate http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2004-06-02-japan-women-usat_x.htm ,

China`s birthrate http://english.people.com.cn/200403/31/eng20040331_139051.shtml

Canada`s birthrate
http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2004/04/19/babies040419.html

And Global fertility and birthrates dropping.
http://www.humanlife.org/abortion_global.php

I have also noticed , among my friends , acquaintances, and even my youngest brother ,
the desire to raise offspring is gone .

I`m seeing a trend here , and worry that the world`s human birthrate is dropping below the mortality rate , and the human race is showing signs of it`s entropy .

My question is , do you want to have children ?
Why do you make this choice ?
Does any of the information I have provided change your stance , and why?

Personally? I would love the idea of having children, looking forward to having the fun times with my kids just like I have with my own parents.

i want kids for purely biological reasons that is to propagate the species, my girlfriend also wants some but for reasons that most her friends are already mothers...

A dead baby with a punctured lung!


What's worst than 10 dead babies in a trash can?

I'd hate to have children, just thinking about wasting all that money and time on them is depressing.

I don't like children. Apart from that I see no reason to reproduce. I wish less people would reproduce

Well, since I already have one, I guess I'll have to say I want children!

I became pregnant by accident.
My cousin had to try for three years before she could become pregnant.
My sister (older) doesn't have any children, and i'm not sure if she will be able to, she reaching the age of possibly having a down syndrome baby or not having one at all. So i don't know which she would choose.

..........I like to have a child. Nothing more nothing less...

...Nothing more also means having a husband with the child. haha.

Love children, but sooo not for me.

But one day, I might have one by accident. -_-'
