    I am childless by childbearing would have been very difficult for me, and my first husband and I were happy without kids.  My second husband had a vasectomy with his ex-wife, and that was just fine with me.

    IN America, as everywhere else, childlessness by choice is still something people look askance at.

    I understand the one-child policy n China--and I think it's wrong. On the other hand, this world MUST curb population growth--voluntarily.  Women in developing nations often wish to limit family size but are prevented by cultural conditions, their spouses, or the simple unavailability of  birth control--and some of that has to be blamed on the anti-choice forces of the U.S. right-wing Christians.

    FYI, I do know something about Islam--I've read the Q'oran and quite a bit if Islamic history.  It's odd how a religion which was so far ahead in its treatment of women in the Middle Ages ( female doctors, judges, imams in Baghdad under Haroun-al-Rashid and in Andalusia; guaranteed inheritance for daughters who then controlled that inheritance 0--not their husbands-- when women in Europe who inherited  lost all right to control it to their husband ) has lsot that.  Of course, Christianity never recognized women as people--raised Catholic, left Christianity 40+ years ago. ne'er to return.

    What I was trryign to do was explain WHY a woman might choose abortion.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
