A couple have said they won’t have children as they don’t want to ‘contaminate the world’.
Nathalie Guzman and Andrés Flu told family and friends they had decided to have a vasectomy by sharing a photo of themselves holding an appointment ticket on social media.
They claim they’ve made the decision as it’s more important to "contribute to the conservation of the planet that is so overpopulated and damaged".
But their post has sparked a furious debate on social and many people have slammed their unusual outlook. But others have praised them and said more of us should do the same.
Their original post, shared on Andrés’s Facebook page, says: "We want to share with you the great joy. WE WILL NEVER BE PARENTS.
"We accept a life in which we will forever buy the toys for us, we can travel without limitations, walk naked around the house and more.
"However our main reason is not this, the most important is to contribute with the conservation of the planet that is so overpopulated and damaged.
"We will not bring one more human in to contaminate it. Whoo."
Nathalie later added: "Guys, children are beautiful to me.
"If I wasn’t affected by what I see every day, because sometimes it hurts me to breathe, to see so many children suffering in the street, so many drugs, violence and cruelty. Believe me, I would consider having one."
Many people were shocked by the Colombian couple’s decision and their outlook in general.
One woman wrote: "It seems to me that it’s not an intelligent way to describe or explain why they don’t want to have children. How are the children a contamination?"
Another simply wrote: "They don’t know what they’re missing."
One man commented: "What would be of you if your dad had done the same. Because a child is never a mistake, it’s a blessing. They will never be happy. Selfish, at least have one."
But other people agreed with their unusual thought process.
One wrote: "I dread the idea of bringing a human being into this world to live this life of slavery.
"We live to maintain a decadent society and its large corporations while the planet dies! It is a beautifully responsible decision."
Another added: "Congratulations!! The smartest!!! and empathetic of your part!!! I wish you good life!!!"
One man commented: "We are a parasite in the world, we are more and more!!! If people realized that all the problems of the planet are for so many humans…. good decision I’m glad."
