The premise of the Children of Men seems far-fetched to me. As you say, people are so depressed because they can't make more of themselves that civilization degenerates into dystopia. Does this seem even remotely probable?

It seems to me that our continued increase in population density is causing the very dystopia the movie depicts. What's more likely to bring about a brutally fascist nation: packing people tighter together with fewer resources or having more room for everyone with more of everything?

We may progress towards a healthier Earth as our awareness grows, but if there are more of us there will be fewer of other species -- we have to live somewhere and wherever we live not much else lives.

Many existing children don't have the opportunities you mention. Their chance to achieve their full potential would be more likely if there were fewer of them. Until every child is cared for, I don't think the intentional creation of another one by anyone anywhere can be justified.
