I don't think having kids is necessarily selfish but I don't think it's selfless either. People who have kids have them b/c they WANT them. Sure they take care of them when they're sick, spend countless hours helping them learn and grow as people(hopefully) spend heaps of money on them but that's what you're supposed to do! Why should I applaud someone who takes responsibility for something they chose to do?? I applaud people who truly try to make the world a better place, like doctors who perform services free to the poor or lawyers who defend death row inmates for little to no pay. or anyone who volunteers their time to a worthy cause(as I myself do) but having children doesn't make you instantly selfless or a better person. and deciding to not have kids doesn't make you selfish.
