There’s a fierce and controversial debate in America about whether or not to have children. Some say that having children helps society as a whole, while others argue that children can become a burden on society if parents can’t afford to take care of them and support their needs.
Fertility expert Dr. Daniel Potter, Les Knight, founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, and father and youth mentor Anton, who all have differing views on procreation, share their thoughts in the video above. And, Jesse Lee Peterson, radio host and pastor, doesn’t hold back when he shares his views on what he believes is wrong with the family structure in America today.

“We need to stop taking care of women who are having these babies out of wedlock. We need to stop taking care of these women who are coming from these other countries. We need to stop taking care of their babies,” Pastor Peterson says. “We need to take care of American families first by getting them away from the government and restoring order.”
