I am doing my Ethics GCSE next week and i am practising some exam papers. Could you give me names of some people who may be against this statement and why they are against it. I have points for the statement but stuck on against. Would appreciate the help.

theyre pretty expensive to bring up
large amount of potentially overwhelming responsibility involved
Research shows that people who have children are no more satisfied with their lives than people who don’t. If anything, the balance tips the other way: parents are less happy.
In an instantly famous study, published in Science in 2004, the Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman asked nine hundred working women to assess their experiences during the preceding day. The women rated the time they’d spent taking care of their kids as less enjoyable than the time spent shopping, eating, exercising, watching TV, preparing food, and talking on the phone.
One of the few activities these women found less enjoyable than caring for their children was doing housework, which is to say cleaning up after them.Last edited by ForestShadow; 14-05-2016 at 11:30.
