Now what I want to know is why those of us who choose to be childless can't get an operation to make it so no unfortunate accidents happen. They won't perform a vasectomy or tying of tubes if you're to young or have no children. Sounds kinda silly to me. Also while i'm on the subject, why do my property taxes pay for the schools? I have no vested interest in public schools, I have no children, nor do I or my wife care to have children. Why are we paying for everyone elses kids? Shouldn't they actually have to shell out more of their money if they want their child to have an education? Makes no sense to me.
If a person conducts themselves as animals, they come from and belong to the kingdom of animals. If a person conducts themselves as poor judges, they belong to the kingdom of judges. Both of these kingdoms are where we have been, not where we are going. If a person conducts themselves as a good judge, it is because they come from and will return to the kingdom of Gods.
We live on the roads that lead to all kingdoms. God is our Good Samaritan who is despised on the roads that lead to all kingdoms, except by those who have lost their way and are given mercy and a future by Him. Be aware of what road you are on. Is it a good road, or is it perilous? We all long for our home kingdoms. Which one is yours?

I think that the OP hinted somewhere that he did care in a situation where a child is in danger. I'm not sure where the OP is going with the thread question though, and it could be read two ways, simply Adults or Adults who don't have children! Obviously the OP is from Planet X. It's funny how a dog got involved since AOL have the story today of a man who is thought to have strangled his dog after it bit a child, (unrelated?) in a park in England, but did not bother to give assistance to the child.

That's like asking why I should slow down just because you're crossing the street Maybe you should cross a little faster if you don't want to be run over.
Since I was 12, I have always been told by my grandma and father that I have to create offspring because there are no other surviving members from my dads side,my grandma came from Ireland with 6 other siblings, 3 of them have successfully created offspring, there is me and a few other cousins, however, I have had it drilled in to me that i have to make kids to continue the family on.
Since this pressure is on me I can not stop thinking about having a child, mostly everyday I talk about it, for some reason over the years I have not been able to conceive a child yet, I have not wore protection either, I ask a lot of people and all they say is "it will come when its your time" "god will give you it when its time" or "just don't think about it and it will happen" well, I think that is rather a bit silly, now on the medical grounds its either me or its the women, since its been with about 3 women I tried however not a regular basis i think its me and i want to get a test.
I want a child alot and i know their is many in the world who have diffculty conceiving however i just do not know what is up with me or if there is anything up with me, i just find it frustrating how some others can so easily conceive and others can not,
I also put the pressure on my partners to have a child which can course conflict as well, so, the question remains, dose thinking about wanting a child really effect you having a child and if you do not think about it at all, then you will have a child, is that really how it works?

i was a child, i was looked after in certain ways yes, but many children become lost, alot children are spoilt and thats why the world is how it is, so again, why should we care about the future of man kind
