I strongly believe that people shouldn't have kids simply because they want kids, or because they want someone to look after them in their old age. Are there any unselfish reasons to have kids?

Hello, if you are saying like because they want someone to look after them in their old age. I am sure that would mean the parents should also take good care of them when they are still young. Therefore, if they were to have more kids because of this reason, they probably have the ability to raise them up at least decently.

Then if it is just because they want kids and maybe they want kids because they like kids. If they like kids, they would not want them to suffer, I would think it is innate in human to look after their own blood. In my opinion, they are not considered selfish unless you are saying they cannot even afford to pay proper meals for them then it is back to the question of if the parents treat them like "junk" after they grow older then how will the kids treat their parents when they are old?

It’s definitely a wrong but we cannot do anything about it. Like they intentionally give birth to many kids knowing they cannot afford, then ask for government help, then we got to waste money to amend their mistake. Then the cycle continues.

There is no right and wrong to having how many kids as long as the parents are able to provide the necessary time and resources to raise them up. Plus, government would be happy to have more children now haha

But don’t you think raising kids is the parents responsibility? Having kids require detailed planning but those people have kids first then “plan as they go” 😂
