How Young Is Too Young To Choose? →

Hanna Brooks Olsen, on her doctor refusing to do a tubal ligation on her because she is only 24:

Being a biological parent will, I believe, never be the right decision for me. And it’s not because I don’t like children, or because I am selfish, or because of what any study about the happiness of non-parents says. It is because I genuinely do not want to bring a child of my own into the world. And yet, every single person I tell reassures me: “You’ll change your mind eventually.”

I don’t believe that I will.

If you don’t believe that there is a disgusting undercurrent to this country when it comes to reproductive rights, especially women’s reproductive rights, you need your head checked.
