My Google alerts brought me some great stuff to share with you.
1)There are numerous articles on the new Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan. She, like Justice Sonya Sotomayor, is childless. On his True/Slant blog, Michael Roston joins those who worry that having justices who are not mothers will mean they don’t understand issues pertaining to mothers, children, families,etc. Plus, their appointment will send a message that you can only rise to the top of your career if you never have children. He got a lot of reactions, both positive and negative. What do you think?
2) A new book called “Two is Enough” by Laura Scott looks at the effects of childessness on couples who never have children. I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds interesting.
3) A video called “Childless by Choice” from the USC film school looks at several people who don’t have kids for various reasons, including spouses who don’t want them, neither person wanting them, and more. It’s 21 minutes, short but touching and well done. Click the link to watch it.
