Should human procreate?
Procreating brings joy and security to parents.
Many people love the experience of raising their children, and being able to pass on knowledge to these children and watch them grow.
People get joy out of life by having close relationships with others, particularly their family. Individuals should be able to choose to extend this by bringing children into the world who they can love and care for, and who will likely show them love and care in return.
Procreating assures that there will be someone there to care for parents when they are elderly.
Procreating is selfish.
Adoption should bring equivalent joy and security to selfless, egoless parents. Procreation is not only unnecessary, but in a world of finite resource; immoral.
Just because something brings joy doesn't mean it is ethical.
