In some ways, I support these women's decision

More Women Are Saying No To Motherhood. Will Society Ever Listen?

The child-free by choice movement is growing online, but women say they're still feeling pressured in their day-to-day lives.

“Why many women are intentionally opting out of parenthood,” one recent Today Show headline said. “Choosing ‘child-free’ does not equate to a dislike for children,” the subhed added — lest we think these women are baby-disinterested jerks.

“People ask me ‘Why not?’” one woman featured in the story said. “Why don’t we ask the other question: ‘Why are you choosing to have a child?’ That’s the bigger question. Do you have the resources and emotional ability? Or is it just a shot in the dark because you feel you’re supposed to? With our friends, we see that a lot of women have children because it’s next in their checklist. The world is overpopulated. We have a climate crisis. If someone says they don’t want kids, it should be like, ‘Cool’ move on.”
