- "I can't afford children right now,"
- "The society I'm living in, at present, isn't appropriate for children."
The other form of antinatalism is philosophical antinatalism, or the position that having children is morally wrong. The reasons cited may include:
- Having children imposes unnecessary pain and risk on those children.
- Having children takes potential resources away from neglected children who are already alive.
- Having children puts unnecessary stress on the environment.
- "My religion forbids me from having children."
Pragmatic antinatalism is first defined in my video, Antinatalism: An Evolutionary Dead End (17 May 2019). In the video, I refer to "hard-core" antinatalism, which I am defining now as philosophical antinatalism.
