(2) it really is continuously unsuitable to have young ones. (3) it's incorrect to not abort fetuses on the previous phases of gestation. (4) it'd be greater if, because of there being no new humans, humanity turned extinct. those perspectives might sound unbelievable--but someone who reads Benatar can be obliged to take them seriously.
