Many times this sin also causes the death of their children. Even if a person sees his children living, he should not think everything will be peaceful for him, because he does not know what will happen at the end of his days. The children who are born from this sin are considered as completely wicked as they are among the nine types (since one of the nine is a child of a Niddah) that is written about in Yechezkiel (Ezekiel) 20:38, "I will purge out the rebels and sinners against Me." Furthermore, our Sages of blessed memory state in Gemara Nedarim 20b, "How much will he suffer from this in the future! It is not bad enough that he ruined his own life, he brought wicked people to this world to rebel against G-d and His Torah all the days of their lives. His terrible sin will be remembered forever." It is also written in the Holy Zohar Parshas Shemos, "the children he has at that moment bring down upon them a spirit of impurity and all their days they are impure. For here his building and foundation stay in a great impurity that is stronger than all the impurities of the world."
