This article seeks to determine the moral value of having children from the perspective of religious ethics by means of content analysis and based on the criticism of the views raised. The research findings show that two views can be explained about the moral value of having children. The view of the unethical nature of having children and the view of the inherent value of having children. The survey showed that the views of the speakers on the intrinsic value of having children, which is formulated on the basis of the intrinsic value of human beings and the intrinsic value of the perception of values by humans, is faced with forms of confusion of intrinsic value and other values. Also, the arguments of those who say that having children is unethical are also incomplete. Finally, by referring to the view of the necessity of analogies to the other and through the examination of religious sources to provide the general cobra of analogies that determine the predicate (good/bad) for the issue of having children, the value of other than having children was explained. In this view, having children is considered to have a different moral value because it provides the basis for reaching the final perfection of man.
