Antinatalism. Inspired by the urge to end suffering… But humanity must live to manage suffering, if it disappeared then animals would continue to suffer and anyway evolution would recreate life again if all animals disappeared… But regulating birth is essential for our planet (which may become too full), especially with more and more ageing humans.

See also the longevity-anti-death movement, which is against suffering due to old-age illnesses or fear of death… see Life extension.
