You could say the same thing about us giving birth at all. The kids didn't choose to be born, so what right do we have to create any new life..?

See, if you get this pedantic, you can label anything 'involuntary', even down to the formation of the universe way back when.

So literally:

progress is bad, we should stay the same forever and never evolve or strive to reach new heights

i don't consider defasher's issues with eugenics to be the problem with anarcho-transhumanism - it certainly is an issue but even if your egalitarian transhumanist utopia were possible it would still be fucking terrifying to me - but maybe consider that the bourgeois industrialists of the 19th century would have said exactly the same thing about the technological developments of their day and realise the flaw in your argument that technology is inherently emancipatory
