Is it for their benefit, for society’s benefit, or our own?
Must we teach our children to kill?
Tracy Brighten

I find this to be an interesting question. In this day, I think I would have to consider the act of having children neither of benefit for the children, nor for benefit of society. Few communities need children to work fields, hunt food, or run the store. Ultimately, we choose to have children because we want them. I don’t say this to detract from the point you are making here, I just thought it interesting.
