Response To: A Rational Cure for Pre-Reproductive Stress
Journal of Medical Ethics 2004 August; 30(4): 382-383
This response to "A rational cure for pre-reproductive stress syndrome" first suggests it is existence that is essential and prerequisite to everything good or bad, therefore it deserves to be protected and respected. Secondly, it argues that every life is worth living, even if it is worse than some other lives, if the only alternative is non-existence. Finally, it takes a critical view of and challenges Hayry's suggestion that in a good clinical situation, the idea of the irrationality of having children could be a legitimate part of the guidance given, since it is not the counsellor's or doctor's duty to advise a couple who wish to have children that it is irrational or even immoral to bring a child into life.
