    ...they were the last two remaining people on Earth?

    I say no, it would not. Being fruitful and multiplying as soon as possible would be a "good" thing, based on my personal belief system. How about you?

    If they are the only two people left, then they get to decide what is moral or ethical and the opinions of people that no longer live does not matter. That being said, it would be difficult for them to know if they are the last two people on Earth.

    Maybe by liberal standards it would be unethical, because
    (1) nobody would be around to provide free health care if they had children,
    (2) nor abort pregnancy to prevent children from being born into a life of deprivation,
    (3) since there would be no government to support welfare benefits, a guaranteed job and free college.

    I'll chalk this up to "Shit I'm too busy to ever ponder".

    If there's grass on the field, play ball.

    Trying to turn a 14 year old girl into a baby factory is just a very bad for health reasons alone, for both the baby(ies) and the 14 year old.

    Keep the flippant pedophilia references out and this conversation could make for an interesting discussion in Religion and Ethics. Zone 2.

    Savvy?

    Biology (and the vast majority of human history) would disagree with you.

    Too young. The idea is repulsive to me.

    Maybe so. I'm not a medical doctor but the question is whether it's moral or ethical.
