Words of Caution for Elena Kagan, There's a Far Touchier Reproductive Issue Than Abortion

For some reason the idea of not having children remains one of the most taboo subjects, especially for women.

Continued from previous page


So to all of the wonderful moms out there, including my own, (who as you have obviously figured out by now did, in the end make the choice to become a mother--and a GREAT one) I salute you and wish you a happy belated Mother's Day.

But to all the women out there who think there is something wrong with them, because they don't feel the yearning to become a mother, that they have been told since they were little girls that they should feel, I say this: do what's right for you.

Not what's right for your boyfriend, fiancé, or husband.

Not what's right for your mother.

Not what's right for your friends who have already become mothers.

Do what's right for you, and of course what's best for any child you may or may not decide to welcome into your home.

Remember it's your choice.
