The Forsaken are already immortal, who needs to procreate when you'll live forever? Like how rabbits have 3 litters a year but humans may only have 3 kids in a lifetime. If the Forsaken lose a member, they can just re-resurrect them. Turning once living people into angry mindless slaves of an undead army really doesn't endear the Living to you. The Lich King tried it, look what happened to him.

We're not sure about the whole 'immortality' thing yet. It's only been six, seven years since Sylvanas freed most of the Forsaken, and there are already a few examples in-game of bodies beginning to rot away or minds fading with time.

Well, they've also been in conflicts a lot, and its difficult to imagine that they can't be killed- which means that their numbers must be going down, that way, if not from old age. But I would imagine that eventually all the flesh on their bodies will probably rot off, or their limbs will fall off and get eaten by bears and they'll become useless as soldiers.

Their elbows and knees seem to do fine without flesh on them to make their joints. When you're existing solely by necromantic magic, I doubt flesh on your bones is a requirement to exist.

Even if they don't fall apart or become mindless over time, If they're out there fighting against the Alliance and all the myriad unfriendly things in the world many of them are going to end up re-dead in a manner that is not conducive to re-reanimation, such as burned to ash, smashed to a gooey pulp, ripped apart, dissolved in acid... it's surprisingly fun to think of the ways.

The world is in constant conflict, even ignoring the possibility of their bodies or the necromatic magic used to raise them degrading over time they're being killed off in all of these conflicts. Now they're looking to take on Gilneas, they're going to need more soldiers.
