You needn't be screwed up. When I was born there were about 2 billion people in the world, now, without my having had a single child, there are close to seven billion people.

How many will there be when todays child turns 50?
When I was 20, fifty sounded like someone else's problem. Now that I am almost 60, I am someone else's problem just by sitting here.

Nothing I do in life will be as significant as not having children. There was nothing I could do to give your children a better chance at the life I've had.
