Let's talk for a minute about parenthood. Or, more accurately, non-parenthood. I'm talking here about a woman's right to choose. Not her right to choose to stay pregnant, but her right to choose to never get pregnant at all.
I could not be happier for loved ones who choose to become parents. For some it is their true calling. But for others, myself and my husband included, it isn't. If you are our friends and loved ones, be happy for us. Because we are.
I personally would like to have children at some point down the line (at least I'm pretty sure) but right now I'm content to live a life that just wouldn't be able to exist if I was financially and emotionally responsible for another human being.
