Be ChildRich and proud for saving Humanity. Human birth rate is dropping fast due to human hedonism and individualism, effective birth control and anti-STD drugs and anti-natalist ideologies like ChildFree, MGTOW, Zeta male ideologies. If the decline of birth rates is not stopped, Humanity will cease to exist. When you decide to extend your family line, not only you fulfill your moral duties to your family and ancestors, you save Humanity from depopulation and extinction.
