Surprised by the lack of criticism against it[edit]

Certainly I can find thousands of criticisms against anti natalism from a cursory web search, surely criticism section could be expanded with them rather than linking to a bad debate video which ultimately has nothing to do with the subject that is being critiqued?— Unsigned, by: 2409:4073:195:2349:6f5a:105:4518:685d / talk

The article as a whole is pretty bad. One person’s pet project, barely touched by anyone else because it’s not particularly missional. Christopher (talk) 14:57, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

Bible verse for antinatalism[edit]

Ecclesiastes 4:3: So I admired the dead, who had already died, above the living, who are still alive. But better than both is he who has not yet existed, who has not seen the evil that is done under the sun.

Should we mention this in the article? It seems to support antinatalism. Sievert 81 (talk) 06:14, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

For what it’s worth, Wikipedia lists several historical Christian theologians and thinkers who supported what we would today describe as anti-natalism, so I think saying Judaism and Christianity are opposed is an oversimplification. At the very least, Evangelical Christianity is hardly the only right wing philosophy to obsess a little too hard over birth and promoting population increase. —2607:FB90:5129:3D03:FD36:E37B:6499:5C50 (talk) 08:34, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
