Anyone who is genuinely concerned with falling birthrates should be supporting policies such as paid maternity leave, subsidized day care, flexible work schedules, affordable health care and so on that would make it feasible for more women who want babies to have them. As for the women who don’t, we should be grateful in the knowledge that they are intelligent enough to make the choice that is best for them and then back off with the judgement.

  • What they say to kids who want pets:Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?
  • What they say to adults who DON'T want kids:Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!

I knew from a very young age that I was someone who just did not want children. I never had a connection with them, I didn’t like dolls, and I just found myself always being incredibly busy and focused on bigger issue stuff. I found myself young and vulnerable and pregnant at a crisis pregnancy center, with people shaming me and guilting me and lying to me about being pregnant—they were so invested in a world that they wanted women to live in, and they were not invested at all in whether or not I would be a good mother. For someone pushing on me something that I would be terrible at was such an indication that that person was not invested in helping me or any woman make the world a better place. So I just realized from that point forward that I want every woman to pursue her best self and her dreams.
