During my next colonoscopy, please doctor, don't administer a sedative.

"I'm so happy I had no children. Now I can die alone, unmourned and unloved, a genetic dead end."

This does not belong here.

I've said it, and more than once.

Of course it was a long time ago, and these days things are a little different. But it has been said, so it doesn't belong here.

I have heard people say they are glad they have no children.  There are people who feel the earth is over populated and don't want kids.

Have you heard someone say this, on their deathbed and certain of their imminent passing from this world? 

And did they live full and fulfilling lives of accomplishment without any empty spaces, if so? 

I think there is a more abstract point to the post. I think you would be hard pressed to find a pleasant-to-be-around person with an agreeable nature who was generally a net benefit to Earth and mankind who leaves this mortal coil without any ongoing genetic contribution to the future of humanity. 

Being happy that you never had children is admission of several possible things, all of them negative and/or narcissistic. 

Either you think that you had no value to human legacy, and that your gene pool is best a genetic dead end. 

Or you think it could only get WORSE from where you are. 

Or you don't want to put your genetic legacy into the future they would inherit. 

At worst it is a misanthrope statement - "The universe would be better without humanity, and I'd like to do my part to move us in that direction, by doing nothing." 

It isn't a selfless act of altruism. "I won't have children so that the world will be a better place for all the people who DO have children."  That might be the wrapper people try and disguise it in - but it is almost always the expression of selfish, narcissistic expressions. 

Which is why people who embrace this philosophy seem to get so hostile when they're called out on it. I'm not saying you're a terrible person if you don't have kids. It is your life, spend it how you want to.  But - don't try and sell me that it is because you're concerned about overpopulation. I'm not buying that. I think it is more likely you don't want to share your stuff or to be responsible for another tiny little human and how they turn out. It is about you.
