The nature of the world is to be messed up. The question of whether to bring children into this messed up world is as old as the messed up world itself.
There has been no change in black-white disparities over between 2006 and 2015, and women’s increasing age during pregnancy is only a part of the equation.
If Serena Williams hadn’t been famous, and especially if she were in an inner-city or rural hospital, she may never have returned home with her daughter.
The defensiveness at Serena Williams’s remark rather than rush to celebrate her body’s uniquely female creative work implies that women who don’t have children agree that they are missing something.
Individuals who choose to have fewer kids should by all means proceed. Meanwhile, pro-family conservatives shall inherit the future.
Killing the unborn isn’t the answer to high-risk pregnancy. We should focus on helping mothers and their children, from conception to childbirth—and beyond.
Women don’t know the risks associated with putting off pregnancy. As a result, we’re seeing an increase in high-risk pregnancies and high-risk births.
It’s a fallacy to claim that the pro-life community seeks to force childbirth and compel women to render themselves human sacrifices for their unborn children.
My friend asked me how to balance honesty about the difficulties of fertility with sympathy for her friends who couldn’t have kids. Here are some ideas.
I had been by my wife’s side for 12 hours as she moaned, breathed, and eventually pushed, and still I was not prepared for what seemed for all appearances to be magic.
Our last baby arrived in 90 minutes. This time, I went from sleeping in bed to giving birth in a car on the side of the road, all in about an hour.
We parents of disabled children know the pain. The fear. And the pull of despair. But we also know the love. True love doesn’t take the ‘out’ provided by a ‘compassionate’ doctor.
Only 28 percent of women have three or more children, and 52 percent of women, according to General Social Survey data, reported their ideal family size is two children.
After our doctor described our baby’s heart defect, I expected her to tell us to get an abortion. She didn’t—but she didn’t tell us not to have one, either.
NARAL Pro-Choice America’s California state director Amy Everitt wants the world to believe that ‘abortion is the most safest medical procedure in America.’
There are moments that break and scar us. But those are the same moments that make us stronger, better, more empowered, and more beautiful.
These transitions are wistful and a little frightening. But after the year we’ve had, I greet them with reverence and wonder.
You can be thin again after a baby without spending a lot of money or time. I know because I do it, without weird diets or self-torture. And I’m not the only one.
Doctors, nurses, support staff—they don’t work for free, and there is no reason they should.
