Elrond looked into her future and saw DEATH....never mind how many children she might have with Aragorn, or how long he would live, she would ultimately die, and be separated forever from all whom she loved. Elrond's actions might seem selfish to us humans since we have no alternative and accept death as inevitable. We can't wish to live for ever with our children, but the Elves normally do and it is pretty inconceivable to them to want to give that up.
Plus, of course, he's already had the heartache of his twin making that choice and is desperately hoping his children will not desert him...
