People Who Choose Not To Have Children Are Selfish, Says Man Who Chose Not To Have Children

A man who has chosen to remain childless has hit out at people who choose to remain childless.

“Not to have children is a selfish choice,” he said. "Unless you've chosen not to have children because you're a celibate man who's devoted his life to God. That's completely different."

"Life rejuvenates and acquires energy when it multiplies," he added. "Or so it seems, looking around at other people who have had children. I have no idea - I don't have any."

When asked to explain his position in more depth, the man said: "Look, of course I want people to breed. Is the Pope Catholic?"
