What makes many people have children although they NEVER wished to do so, often regretting it?

In a survey done by Anne Landers 4 decades ago, it polled that over 50% of people indicated that they WOULDN'T have children if they had to do it all over again. Very few people want to have children; however, the majority have children based up familial, societal, and religious pressures, much to their and their children's regret later on. Many parents see their children as noisome obligations only to be endured until they are 18 years old and/or move out of the house.Many children are abused because they were unwanted or treated quite perfunctory by their parents. .
