    My firstborn wouldn't enjoy being raised in a bunker and living there for 25 years with just me for company so I think I'd have to go with yes

    It's kind of obvious who has children and who doesn't.

    It is. A person can never fully understand how much a person loves their child until they have one themselves. Many people on here claim they "hate" children, but one day when they have their own, they will realize how precious their child is to them. They will finally understand how they would do anything to protect them and keep them save. They will even discover that they would sacrifices themselves to make sure no harm comes to their child.

    Granted, there are some real shit people out there, but the majority of parents would do anything to save their child and would never do them any harm. If there are some people on here saying that they would even hate their own children....well, they are part of those shit people in the world and let's hope they never reproduce (intentionally or by accident).

    I agree. I would do literally anything to keep my children safe. It's not that I want to see the world burn, but my children are that much more important than anything else in this world, even if you combine everyone else together, its not even close.

    I don't have the mentality of a parent, so I'm unable to answer that question. But hypothetically, sacrificing the kid is the obvious choice here.

    So you say that people who would sacrifice their children in order to save humanity is stupid and shouldn't reproduce? Then it appears I'm a real shitty person because i care about people other than myself. I say myself because you wouldn't do that for the kid, you would do it for yourself. Because I doubt any kid would want to live in a dead world never to experience anything greater than the daily fight for survival.

    You should think about what would happen to the kid. The kid would have to live his/her life knowing that he/she was the reason theres no longer any life left. Then after a while you (the parent) would die and the kid would be forced to wander the wastelands by herself. So by saving your kid you would essentially condem him/her to a living hell.

    Also let me say that I hate kids but I don't doubt I would love my own more than anything in the world. However there is a limit to what you can do for your kid.

    Btw in order to do this must mean you value your self and your kids life (however empty it maybe) over the life of billions. That to me is crazy.

    Yes, it would not be easy but it would be the best choice. It would be incredibly sad to give up my child but I could not save mine only to spend the rest of my life looking at other mothers and fathers who lost theirs.

    To clarify a little. If the world were in such a state that it needs to sacrifice a 3 year old to save it, the world is f cked anyway. and deserves to end.

    I would sacrifice myself to save my younger siblings.

    I'd sacrifice my child, and all the other kids I can find.

    I'm not a father so I can't really comment, but I doubt I would.

    I agree, but looking at how many more children would die or loose their homes/family because of my decision, it's tricky. These kind of things are always hard to answer but right now, having no children, I would do it for the sake of so many other children.
