Childless or Childfree?

Okay, I must say, I almost couldn’t read this article because of how angry I was becoming! I will just say it–these people are selfish, whether they want to admit it or not.

Here is the link:

One last word–overpopulation is a MYTH, and Jonathan McCalmont’s statement that the government “is wooing parents with longer maternity pay, paternity leave, flexible hours, and family tax breaks” is ridiculous and ignorant.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalm 127: 3-5

God’s word says that a man is happy when he has a quiver full of children. I am sorry for Mariah from Sweden, who chose to be sterilized at the age of 25, and may possibly never know this happiness.

  1. I feel sorry for her as well. I have met plenty of people who said they didn’t wnat children, but when they became, 30 or 35 did want them. What will she do then?

  2. I agree with you Jessica.These people may “feel” liberated in the short-term, but I believe this awful trend will result in a lot of elderly lonely people.
    It’s not alway easy being a Mum- but it’s so rewarding!!!Dying to self is always painful & impossible to avoid when you have children.It’s so sad when you have a whole generation
    trying to skip “the hard stuff” for selfish gain. They’ll be the losers in the long run.

  3. This story truly saddens me. I can only imagine the pain when the realization of her loss hits her. It will hit. Prayers to her when it does.
