One thought on “Prominent People Who Passed on Procreating Part I

  1. As the 2014 proud recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award in the international childfree movement, I know the importance of building a supportive environment and community for living this CF lifestyle. For myself and what I had to endure after “coming out” on “60 Minutes” in 1974, I rally to educate that no person be condemned for this personal choice. No person should have to face death threats, lose a job and fear outrage for suggesting life can be wonderful without having or raising children. No person should ever feel embarrassed or “less than” for not wanting children. Share your choice with pride. Nominate yourself or anyone you feel is deserving of this honor.
    Marcia Drut-Davis, “Confessions of a Childfree Woman”
