Having children is the most fulfilling and rewarding experience possible. There's a reason that people become so distressed when they can't have them- its because they complete us, explain to us who we are and why we are here. Parenthood is the fulfilment of our biological prupose. Many would argue that motherhood makes women's bodies more beautiful, not less, and medical research indicates that not having children(or having them late in life) substantially increases women's chances of developing some cancers.

Well I'm only 15, but I've heard enough about this kinda stuff and, you will think that in the first place but then in the end you'll think, and eventually tell your child that they are the best thing that ever happened to you. I've heard it from my mom and I've ovver heard a lot of parents saying that kinda stuff as well. So don't think that children are a bad thing, you'll think that till you eventually have one.

You should if you want them. You should if you can afford them WITHOUT being on welfare or public aid. Otherwise I have to support you and I support enough welfare mothers with their 10 kids by 8 different 'baby' daddies. But as for me, no, I won't ever be having any. I don't have the patience and I'm too selfish. I come first. I always will. I could never put a child ahead of what I want.

to have children is a god gift. bacause we are also child once . if our mother might not give birth to us what will be our life. we will not be in this world and we may not see this world with our two eyes.so in my openion to have birth is not a great thing to give birth is a great thing then only the life of a women is satisfactionable for ever. so to have children is not only the god gift it is a great thing for us.so in my openion every one must have children.

Children provide for us in our old age, or should. They are an investment- especialy in societies that feature subsistence agreiculture, but also important in the many countries with little or no adequeate state support for the elderly. Strangers or the state will never care for us as our own flesh and blood will.
