Can you imagine a child free home?Since time immemorial, the institution of marriage, concept of family and recently long term relationships all have one common fact, that is the addition of a child(ren) to the family unit. Most of us work hard, save, go that extra mile to see our dreams come true in our children. Parents, grand-parents early await the arrival of a new life, a bundle of joy in the family.
But contrary to what most people would do, can you imagine a couple voluntarily not having children? Yes, there are people who believe that for the sake of planet earth and other life forms, man and mankind have to stop reproducing.
Some of the groups are VHEMT (Voluntary Human Extinction Movement), National organization for non-parents and other childfree groups. The basic thought process is due to the ever-increasing global population, resources are scarce and life forms(other than humans), flora and fauna are rapidly shrinking.
Can such a concept gain widespread acceptance? Isn't it against one of the basic principles of mankind? What are your views?
