What motivated you (not) to have babies?
Man is unique: we are the only species with the capacity to decide to procreate or not to procreate. Other animals "just do it".
Certainly, subconsciously there may persist a biological "need" or an instinct to breed and propagate our genes. But still, consciousness allows us to decide not to do so.
In case you decided to have babies, or to not make babies, which is the main motivation for this decision?
-ecological arguments ("overpopulation")?
-a subconscious urge?
My personal reason: I will (try to) make babies just because I can. And out of pure curiosity.
