The question of whether or not a person should have children doesn’t have a straightforward answer. Certainly, there are several reasons for supporting both decisions. Speaking about the good side of it, it can fulfill you and make your views in the world better, but on the other side if you’re too young and you’re looking for career goals it can make you lag behind.
Nathalie Guzman and Andrés Flu are a couple from Medellin, Columbia who got engaged in September 2015 and decided to share their decision about ‘becoming parents’ on Facebook. However, in comparison to the usual baby announcements, this couple had completed an unheard one. The decided to ‘Never’ be parents.
Here’s what Flu wrote on Facebook: ‘We want to share with you the great joy. WE WILL NEVER BE PARENTS,’ as they posed with an appointment receipt for Flu’s vasectomy.
According to the Colombian couple, they took this decision because they don’t want to ‘bring another human to pollute‘ the world.
Flu also wrote on his Facebook post:
We accept a life in which we will eternally buy toys for ourselves, we will be able to travel without limitations, walk naked around the house and more. However, our main reason is not this, the most important is to contribute to the conservation of the planet that is so overpopulated and damaged. We are not going to bring another human to contaminate it.
Then Guzman added:
I am aware that not everyone should think like us, that the human race should continue.
The post sparked a long debate among commenters, while some were applauding the couple for their decision, others were criticizing them. And yet is their own right to choose what they want for themselves!
