My parents had four children (three biological, one adopted). My mother always knew she wanted a family and loves her kids to pieces. But she also always said she understood women who did NOT want children.
Childlessness is a decision I respect, even though I, too, always knew I wanted kids. That's why this WND article caught my eye: Remaining childless – selfish or noble? Women weigh in on the touchy issue of not procreating.
While I certainly don't agree with all these justifications, I'm glad women who feel they would make lousy mothers have foregone having children.
