← Should Depressed People Avoid Having Children?

It's not a simple there is a gene or not a gene, nor a simple "my kids will get depression", it's a question of risks and probability. Weighed up, Sarah has decided against having children because the risk of her children having depression is too high for her to consider it the right thing to do.

I'm not sure I buy the Idiocracy view of the world, I don't think we would have got here if it really was that smart people don't reproduce enough.
