    It costs a fortunate to raise a child successfully. In the country where I live there is no mandated maternity leave so a pregnancy often means the end of a career (in a nation where it absolutely takes two incomes to survive). Children require massive amounts of attention and make it to where people can't travel, enjoy luxuries or even get a decent night's sleep. Also because fewer people these days employ the longer thinking to realize that without children you're going to die alone in most cases. So they trade the immediate freedoms for a future of growing old alone.

    In my case it's because I knew I'd make a lousy father, and one of the things this world needs less of is lousy dads.

    I'd much rather fast cars, luxury holidays and be free to do as I like than be burdened with screeching, shiitting, puking sprogs.

    Because naturalized people come in by the millions and both naturalized and American people keep popping out children like it doesnt make a difference in the cost of living. Why bring children into the world for them to "hope" they can get a future with an over amount of people already in it?

    Here's a hint. (90% of all abortions are because the child isn't wanted.And a child would be an inconvenience to their life style. Does that give you an idea.

    Source(s): Abortion/No

    The world is bad enough as it is today, why would I want to bring a child into it when it is only going to be worse?

    They're expensive, and they usually refuse to follow the path you lay out for them.

    Because I do not want to have to worry about someone for the rest of my life. Better than me having them and feeling this way

    The world is going to pot right now.

    It's already severely over-populated.

    It's polluted.

    Climate change is threatening to overwhelm and wipe out our civilization.

    Because of this, going childless is becoming much more common. I mean, would you want to subject a child to such a bleak future?

    They are worried about overpopulation and selfish people who don't care about creating a sustainable population level.

    Some realise that the world is a nasty place and wish they were never born themselves and wouldn't wish life on their worst enemies.
