Yeah it is. You don't want a child, you both want a child. Maybe think like a couple and you won't need to think about being selfish.

Have a kid when you're 28 or 30. Don't bring a child into the world when you can't even take care of yourself and others around you, because that's pretty selfish

Don't reveal the statistics to him.

It'll break him.

It depends upon the motives you have, it can be selfish or giving.

IMO yes.

I always hear people say my wish for Immortality is selfish but it's like ....so is your wish to have kids.

You bring a life into this world with no choice and it may suffer.
Then you force it to live even if it wants to commit suicide.
i could go on but having children imo is selfish.

It would be absurdly one sided for it to be something 'selfish'.

I mean, to refer to it that way? I highly doubt it could be something selfish judging that at the time in which you are deciding whether or not to have a child it doesn't even exist, and if it were to? It would not be your fault if it were to resent you for having it exist in the first place, because you wouldn't have even been able to regard its conscience at the time.

If anything, perhaps it not wanting to exist could have derived from raising it poorly or mistreatment, lol. Anyway, I think it would be selfish in itself if it were to claim that you're selfish for wanting him/her to exist.

Giving life should be respected. It's not an easy job. Nobody asks to be born, it's the human cycle of life. Being provided for and nurtured is not selfish. I think what's selfish is when people can't appreciate anything. I'm thinking that statement is sort of ironic. What's selfish is running away from responsibility. Not the act of having kids.

Giving life should be respected as much as wanting to extend ones life as it's no less selfish as that.
Having a child is only for allowing your Genes to go on.

Running away from responsibility is selfish but to say Giving life is not selfish is wrong as it is just as Selfish as per say someone wanting Immortality.

In the end Selfish is not always bad

I don't think either is selfish, selfish is kicking someone to give yourself a leg up; that doesn't really apply to this scenario.

So are you saying adopting is selfish too? He said "Is wanting kids selfish", so adopting isn't the same genes, so how could that possibly be selfish?
