What do you think would happen if more people delayed or chose not to have children?


It is a personal choice to have or not to have children. However, would there be mostly positive results or mostly negative results if say 5% - 15% of the world chose to delay or not have children? What things would change? What things wouldn't?

    I agree, most people cannot afford them and the second issue is that there is a fair percentage that are just not mentally able to parent in a positive manner. As far as finances are concerned, their shortfall is picked up by family and government.

    I'm not saying to delay childbirth until the 40's and 50's. I think that at that point mentally strong/stable people with plenty of financial backing should be looking at adoption or surrogates to avoid health issues and difficult pregnancies.

    "We don't need more children, we need more caring people to take care of those in need....we are overpopulated, it is okay for one generation to take break." Good observation.

    By delay, I mean that some people have kids without having sufficient resources, no money, no self-sufficiency, etc., then they bring another life into the world. These people often become a burden to their extended families and taxpayers.

    In places like the US, this could be a good thing. There is a fairly large number of people here that bring new life into the world without the financial or emotional resources to be parents, creating a drain on others whether family or government.

    Sorry, but your figures are incorrect. Only about 2% of the US population is LGBT.
