Your Life Isn’t Over if You Have a Kid

Think about it, people. There are folks out there who don’t believe in a woman’s control over her own body or right to choose whether or not to procreate, and there are people who believe a big man in the sky has given them the directives of going forth and multiplying paired with manifest destiny. Some of us may choose to stop participating in this, but not all of us. Some of us still believe in a return to Eden. It’s just as possible.
