Title: Sam Sphall
The Permissibility of Procreation

I introduce an influential challenge to the morality of procreative  
parenting, which turns on the (putative) comparative superiority of  
adoptive parenting. I critique recent attempts by Luara Ferracioli and  
Elizabeth Brake to vindicate the permissibility of procreative parenting in  
the face of this challenge. I then outline some considerations in favour of  
procreative parenting that have been largely ignored in the literature. I  
remain, however, agnostic about the strength of these considerations. To  
conclude, I motivate a metaethical position that I call "deontic  
fictionalism," and argue that it gives us a useful perspective on debates  
like this one.
