If anyone saw the movie with Julianne Moore and Clive Owen, this is a hypothetical question and not an attack on the childfree population, what if the human race was decreasing at an explosive rate and people had to start becoming pregnant, and the government issued a law that childfree had to get pregnant, would you do it?

No. I don't consider it a problem if humans die out. In fact, the idea of us continuing ad nauseam is very depressing.

Nope. It's not my obligation to continue to infest the planet with humans.

No, and I´d die rather than doing that! I also wonder how that?d ever
happen. To my knowledge, current assisted reproductive techniques
only allow for IVF to be done with donor eggs if a woman is past her fer_
tile window. So I'd have to be forced to undero the procedure, since my
eggs are toast!

I don't see much point in continuing the human population, The rest of the planet would get along much better without us.

No. I'd do everything in my power to avoid it.

I haven't seen the movie or read the book, but I guess I don't understand why, if humanity were about to die out, that anyone alive would care. Hell, I think it'd be awesome to be among the last living humans. And if people were determined to keep the human race alive, well... what kind of world would those newly born people live in? It'd be the Dark Ages all over again. No thanks.

sorry to be thick, but huh...? I thought you could use a donor egg if you wanted to, why would you need to be past your fertile window if other issues affected your fertility?

HELL NO!!. If the human population starts to die out it's for a reason. And if I heard things were headed that way I would immediately schedule a hysterectomy and pray for my IUD to puncture my uterus while I waited for the appointment.

Not a chance in hell. I'd literally rather die than become some kind of broodmare. I could not give less of a shit if humanity dies out or not. In fact, I'd probably cheer if everyone was magically rendered infertile. There's too many of us, and the earth would be better off if we would stop breeding.
