Abstract: Throughout history, procreation has always been regarded as a natural and integral part of human life. In many cultures and societies, procreation is also seen as a necessity for one to lead a flourishing and successful life. Not reproducing children would thus be considered absurd, or even unnatural to the general pro-natalist population which highly regards the value of procreation. This paper will argue against the general consensus that procreation should be treated as a natural and integral part of life, and aim to prove that procreation is a decision that carries a significant amount of moral weight. Thus, it is necessary for prospective parents to provide due consideration through deliberation regarding the duties owed to their children, as well as the way to navigate their procreative desires and actions in a responsible manner.
