NO!!! I was young, and religious. Having kids is what we were supposed to do. I love my kids and I'm proud of them, but I do regret having kids. I added to the air, water, and overall pollution. I made the over population problem worse. I put my kids in situations where they were in pain, in danger, and were not happy, for prolonged periods of their lives. I saw my kids participate in wars. Not having kids would have been the responsible thing to do. I reacted to social and religious pressure to conform. This was NOT in the best interest of society. Several thousand years ago, some religious nut told his people to "go forth and multiply." They did this many times over. The damned fool forgot to tell them when they had done enough, and they over did it.
