This week Mo chats with antinatalist, Amanda Sukenick. Antinatalism is a family of philosophical views that are critical of reproduction — they consider coming into existence as bad or deem procreation as immoral. Antinatalists thus argue that humans should abstain from begetting children. Antinatalist views don't need to be limited only to humans, but may encompass all sentient creatures, claiming that coming into existence is a harm for sentient beings in general.
We recommend watching her excellent interview on "Soft White Underbelly."
