the reason I said is subjective is that during hard times like a plague, famine, or atrocities like the holocaust, many people may relate to it.

from my perspective I would adamantly say yes, it is wrong. but that is based on my perspective and I cant counter the opinion of others in less fortunate circumstances.

interestingly this issue is currently being tackled in an anime, attack on titan.

Usually their reasons are something to the extent of:
1) Life sucks so there shouldn't be more of it (being a utilitarian argument, the best way to avoid pain is to not start)
2) That human didn't consent to begin living, so we have no right to make them
3) Or various theological reasons

Abortion can be part of it. But, antinatalism is, to put it simply, the belief that it is wrong to bring life, often human life specifically, into this world. I'm saying that that is incorrect

I want to say yes, but it is very subjective.
