Every woman or man dreams to become parents one day, it is a beautiful feeling when you see your kids grow in front of you. But, some people think differently and want to give a message to the world.
Like many couples, Nathalie Guzman and Andrés Flu chose to share their baby news with family and friends on Facebook.
But theirs was an announcement with a difference – as they revealed they’ve chosen NEVER to be parents.
The couple, from Medellin in Colombia, sparked furious debate after explaining their decision to pass on parenthood out of fear of what their children might encounter in a ‘cruel’ world.
But they are all in when it comes to supporting other couples wishing to become daddies and mommies because ‘the human race needs to continue.’
The pair, who got engaged in September 2015, shared a snap of Flu holding a ticket for a vasectomy on the morning of January 29.
‘We want to share with you the great joy. WE WILL NEVER BE PARENTS,’ Flu wrote on the social media site.
‘We accept a life in which we will eternally buy toys for ourselves, we will be able to travel without limitations, walk naked around the house and more.’
Flu then switched to a much more serious tone.
‘However, our main reason is not this, the most important is to contribute to the conservation of the planet that is so overpopulated and damaged. We are not going to bring another human to contaminate it.’
Guzman and Flu were also surprised by how many other young couples had taken a similar step.
‘I am aware that not everyone should think like us, that the human race should continue,’ Guzman wrote.
‘I admire the people who plan a child, who educate them with love every day, who care about [raising] a good human being who contributes to the planet.’
The lovebirds were lauded for their life-changing decision which created an interesting, emotionally-charged thread.
‘I dread the idea of bringing a human being into this world to live this life of slavery …,’ Rangel said.
‘We live to maintain a decadent society and its large corporations while the planet dies! It is a beautifully responsible decision.’
Guzman said one of the reasons why she and her fiance decided not to entertain the possibility of welcoming a child into their lives was because of the horrors they saw inflicted on children.
‘Guys, children are beautiful to me,’ she said.
‘Everyone is free to do what seems best and if for them it’s fabulous not to have children, great,’ noted Mila Rodríguez’s in her response.
‘It’s a good thing we all don’t think the same way and we all see happiness from different perspectives!’
Facebook user Javier Rangel also concurred with the couple’s sentiment on foregoing parenthood.
‘If I wasn’t affected by what I see every day, because sometimes it hurts me to breathe, to see so many children suffering in the street, so many drugs, violence, and cruelty. Believe me, I would consider having one.’
A bevy of messages that streamed across Guzman’s and Flu’s Facebook feed attacked their judgment.
A bewildered Pily Tejeda determined the young couple was ‘very stupid’ to even reach such a conclusion.
‘It seems to me that it’s not an intelligent way to describe or explain why they don’t want to have children,’ Tejeda wrote.
‘How are the children contamination?’
