3. Not Your Uterus
Many may believe that motherhood is the essence of being a woman, but others disagree. From time to time, we hear stories of women expressing their choice to remain child-free.
Heart Evangelista, for instance, clapped back at people asking why she still doesn’t have a child with husband Chiz Escudero despite being married for years.
The actress replied, “Chill. Not your uterus.” She also added that being a mother shouldn’t be the only source of happiness. When Heart communicated her view, she broke the bias against women who are child-free by choice.
Reasons for this choice range from lack of finances, health concerns, lack of maternal instincts, and desire for freedom.
While a lot of people do not understand the choice to be child-free, with some even telling women they would “regret it later,” a study noted that those who decided not to have children are confident and happy with their lives.
