It’s none of my business, but thank you for making this decision.

As a now-very-pregnant woman, I don’t only see the impact pregnancy has had on my consumption and carbon footprint, but I also see the benefits that I reap because of women like you who decide against having children.

My maternity benefits are directly influenced by the decision of women before me not to have children. You hit the system where it hurts, and that makes you undeniably powerful.

Don’t let ignorance and social consrrvativism take away that power!
