Should human procreate?
Non existence never hurt anyone.
People who don't exist are not aware of the possibility of life, they are not missing out on anything. Scenario A: X doesn't exist so absence of pleasure (not bad), absence of pain (good). Scenario B: X does exist so presence of pleasure (good), presence of pain (bad).
Suffering (of any kind) can only be experienced by those who exist.
Life is worth the possibility of suffering.
Those who no longer get to exist because of abortion are harmed. Just because people are unaware doesn't mean harm is not being done.
The "non existence" of a child can hurt a parent or even both of them.
Lack of hurt is not the determining factor for moral obligations or prohibitions.
