    In a recent interview, Oprah Winfrey indicated that she didn't want children because she contended that her children would suffer.   Oprah further maintained that she couldn't have a sustaining career & be a mother as one or another will suffer.  Oprah stated that since she was dedicated to her career, she argued that her children would grow to hate her.  Oprah added that she shows motherly concerns when she help children throughout the world.   Oprah made an admirable decision not to have children.  At least she was concerned about the impact of having children.   Oprah was responsible. By contrast, there are women who mindlessly have children, bearing them in the most abject conditions w/o no concern about their educational nor socioeconomic future.  They have children because of some infantile need.   These women are selfish, immature, & irresponsible.    Your thoughts?

      God commanded us to go forth and multiply. There is no end to man's rebellion.

    Sounds like my daughter. She is so focus on her art work, she loves. Over world population is among the worst problems out there anyway. She can be of greater service to humanity and look at the world as her family.

      Thank you Castle.   Childfree women contribute to the world far more than some women who mindlessly reproduce children.   Childfree women are MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS.   There are women who have children because they subconsciously wish to avoid work.  They view having children as the easier option.   Mothers of large families do this- they don't have to raise the children at all- they give the children to the oldest children to raise.

      Many childfree women do view the world as their family.  Women who have children are far more insular.  Think of Michelle Duggar.  This woman continuously have children.  She doesn't contribute anything to the world but overpopulation.  She is the epitome of selfishness & irresponsibility.   Oprah, on the contrary, is a selfless individual.  She contributes to the betterment of the world.   Oprah is a mature woman who thinks before acting where Michelle Duggar & other megamoms just act- NEVER think!   


      This SAYS it SO GOOD!   Childfree women contribute FAR MORE to society than women who just mindlessly have child after child.  These women could have used their energy to contribute to the world through a career but they took the easy way out...….

    Castle, I read a Daily News article in 1974 which stated that so many women have children because they have nothing to offer career wise.  They believe that since they have nothing to offer career wise, they might as well have children.   This same article maintained that women would rather have children because it is much easier than making career choices.   

    Also childfree women are honest in their assessment not to have children.  Many women sheepishly have children to cater to the wishes of their parents, peers, religious authorities, & societal approval in general.   Only a VERY SMALL percentage of women truly want children, the rest have children because of outside pressure.
