12 Jun Christian Heritage Webinar – Moot Points: Is Having Children Morally Wrong?
We tend to think that bringing a child into the world is a good thing – something to be celebrated, in fact. This assumption is challenged by antinatalism, an ethical stance which is increasing in popularity. Antinatalists argue that procreation is in itself morally wrong, and should therefore be abandoned. A key voice in this debate is Professor David Benatar, whose book Better Never to Have Been advances the idea that coming into existence is always a serious harm. In this Moot Point event, Prof David Benatar interacts with Christian ethicist Dr Matthew Lee Anderson, discussing the arguments for and against antinatalism.
