Should human procreate?
Not procreating will ultimately lead to human extinction and this is a bad thing.
As a hard rule, this leads to the speedy destruction of humanity within a few generations.
We must sustain the human race, as it is the only sentient species we know of that can observe and enjoy the universe, and it's existence would be wasted otherwise.
There is no other species that has any greater claim to existence than humanity makes. Otherwise it could be similarly said that nothing should procreate.
We are in the middle of a mass extinction event caused by humans. The extinction of humans would benefit almost all other species.
The value of humanity is in individual human lives, not in the species as an abstract entity. The reason why human extinction would be bad is the death of every single living human, but that will happen anyway unless we cure ageing.
Extinction is not a bad thing. If there is no one there to suffer from it or consider it bad, it is not bad.
