Do You Want Children?

“According to a recent Gallup poll, only 4 percent of adults will be satisfied if they never have children. In 2003, among childless adults over age forty-one, 76 percent wish they had children…They [women] overestimate by up to ten years the age when female infertility begins. The most current studies show that female fertility begins to drop at age twenty-seven, and by age thirty can decline by as much as 50 percent” (Kate O’Beirne, Women Who Make the World Worse [New York: Sentinel, 2006], 44).
