You have just as closed a mind to those who didn't mind raising children. ^^^. Very unattractive. Closed minded. Isn't it wonderful that you had a choice. Let others make their choice.

And what kind of doctor yaps like that about his female pregnant patients, an idiot Doctor frind. Pregnancy IS a wonderful thing. You wouldn't be here if someone hadn't selflessly given of themselves to carry you to term in her body.

Some people loved raising kids, some wished they could and others couldn't and some didn't want to. My sister didn't want children, I have friends who have never wanted children andntherenis not a damn thing wrong with that. I happened to like racing my kids. Some should never, ever have kids. Hell, some shouldn't have a cat or a dog. And at times it's too bad we don't have retroactive birth control.

Why is it so difficult to make up your own mind as to who you want to date and what (like children) are a deal breaker or not. If you've made it to 45 and haven't figured it out, perhaps you shouldn't be dating, you're not smart enough.

Saphires you are all over the page. Your profile says you don't have kids and don't want any. So who's kids did you "race?"

China has limited families, for centuries, to one child . Japan for many many years forbade women to use birth control. In Japan they have many public monuments to all the aborted children that were a result of a government that did not believe women had a choice to use contraceptives. Those are examples of retroactive birth control which is a really poor term to use. Hitler performed nasty experiments on Jews that were pregnant.

I do believe in pro choice. Roe vs Wade was a landmark decision.

I don't have kids because the only time I had sex was with a woman who couldn't have kids.

I love kids though. I wish I could of had some but it just wasn't to be.

You want to flog me for a typo or an auto-correct? And no, I don't want kids, I had one. I have an adult "child" who also has a child. It's a non issue. I have none that I am "racing" or "raising", none I'm putting through university and none that have moved back home, just one that has a spouse so my major parenting is done.

I was watching a tv show on China's one child policy and many had two. It said a person basically had to give 3 years salary to officially keep that second child. Many couldn't afford that so there is a large population of "you don't exist" young adults and children that have never had their birth recorded, their name is not registered anywhere, they can't marry, the can't officially get a job, they can't get a passport...they just live. How horrible.

I am pro choice too. What I'm not is like Moriama and I don't have her opinion regarding those who choose to have children.
