    Do men need invitro to have kids?

    Evidently these are not babies by nature and women are having health complications at much higher rates.

    Why not?
    Because a man's contribution is a few ounces of liquid goo, whereas a woman's contribution is nearly the entirety of her aging body's output.

    Not having kids is best anyhow.

    They are just a huge drain on time and money. For what? So the state can have more cattle.

    For what?! What a world view that is.

    Try raising them not to be cattle, perhaps?

    If they grow up in the West they are the government's cattle.

    Not going to work. Too many stupid people popping out kids at 16, let alone 60.

    From your link:

    "We’re the only species evolved enough to consciously go extinct for the good of all life, or which needs to. Success would be humanity’s crowning achievement. May we live long and die out."

    Wow. I hadn't heard of this group before. Last one to die remember to turn out the lights!

    There's also evidence that giving birth later in life increases the likelihood of developmental problems for the child:

    So older women should consider this carefully.

    More educated women tend to give birth later to fewer children.
    Highly educated women tend to postpone marriage and motherhood
    while they pursue their educations, often resulting in remaining childless.

    Vivify acts as if the only thing that young women have to worry about is having children.
    Young women today may consider other life choices such as pursuing
    education or careers, not just being breeders.

    As the average age of first marriage has increased, many young women
    are not in relationships with men who want to become fathers and take
    care of their children for the next 18 years or so. Few modern young
    women yearn to marry Mr Barely Acceptable just so they can becomeo
    mothers at a theoretically prime age.
