Is it morally unacceptable to have babies?

Background and context

Babies

The birth of babies is the most important factor contributing to the increase of populations around the world. The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Black Death around the year 1400; the highest rates of growth—increases above 1.8% per year—were seen briefly during the 1950s, then for a longer period during the 1960s and 1970s. The growth rate peaked at 2.2% in 1963, and declined to 1.10% by 2009. Annual births have reduced to 140 million since their peak at 173 million in the late 1990s, and are expected to remain constant, while deaths number 57 million per year and are expected to increase to 90 million per year by 2050. Current projections show a steady decline in the population growth rate, with the population expected to reach between 8 and 10.5 billion between the year 2040 and 2050.

The rapid increase in human population over the course of the 20th century raises concern about whether Earth is experiencing overpopulation. The scientific consensus is that the current population expansion and accompanying increase in usage of resources are linked to threats to the ecosystem, such as rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, global warming, and pollution.

Population crisis? - Does a potential population crisis inhibit one's right to reproduce?

Yes

Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. Pollution is bad.

No

What are you saying? Totalitarianism is bad, dude. And judging from what that guy to the left has to say, environmentalist totalitarianism is even worse.

Should drastic measures be encouraged to control births?

Yes

All must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. Instead, human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.

No

Regular contraception should be more than enough. What are you suggesting? Compulsory abortion and sterilization? Are you crazy?

Immigration: Is a government justified in discriminating against more fertile immigrants?

Yes

Find solutions FOR these countries so they stop sending their breeding populations to the US and the world to seek jobs and therefore breed more unwanted pollution babies. FIND SOLUTIONS FOR THEM TO STOP THEIR HUMAN GROWTH AND THE EXPORTATION OF THAT DISGUSTING FILTH!

No

Fertility is not a valid reason to deny someone citizenship. I do agree that it would be preferable to fix the problems in those people's native country, though I would prefer not to call them "DISGUSTING FILTH".

Is human depopulation currently necessary to save the environment?

Yes

It is the responsiblity[sic] of everyone to preserve the planet they live on by not breeding any more children who will continue their filthy practices. Children represent FUTURE catastrophic pollution whereas their parents are current pollution. NO MORE BABIES! Population growth is a real crisis.

No

Not depopulation, but rather population control. It's common sense to have some population control, mainly through more regular use of contraception. Enforcing depopulation is simply over the top, however.

Is the human race inherently harmful to the natural environment?

Yes

Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what's left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture.

For every human born, ACRES of wildlife forests must be turned into farmland in order to feed that new addition over the course of 60 to 100 YEARS of that new human's lifespan! THIS IS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FOREST CREATURES!!!! All human procreation and farming must cease!

Also, war must be halted. Not because it's morally wrong, but because of the catastrophic environmental damage modern weapons cause to other creatures. FIND SOLUTIONS! Humans are supposed to be inventive. INVENT, DAMN YOU!!

Saving the environment and the remaning[sic] species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels.

No

Ah, fuck it. I give up.
