  •  Well, as much as I love my husband. (3+ / 0-)

    And as much as I think I'm a smart person, and as much as the children we have produced are really intelligent, gifted people who do have great potential to change the world ...

    I never thought my husband and I were so special that our DNA not carrying on was a catastrophe for the planet. If we couldn't have kids, well, then we wouldn't have had kids. My brother has six (all born before my first), so, you know, my DNA at least was moving forward.

    I love my kids. Glad they're here, but I find it a rather selfish position to think that it is somehow a right to have children at any cost. It's a strange idea to me that people spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to guarantee they have a biological child.

    Now, I also entirely acknowledge that as a mother of two who really was never entirely adamant about the need for children to start, that is entirely easier for me to say than it is for women who desperately want children.

    So, again, it is a personal decision. It is one, though, that I am absolutely confident I wouldn't make. Not all hypotheticals are like that, but on that one I am absolutely as certain as I can be.
