i connected with william (dann) alexander (@writerdann) on twitter quite some time ago. i’ve followed his journey through the writing of his new book, planned unparenthood: creating a life without procreating.
i haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet and start reading, but it looks like it’s going to be a winner. i urge you to take a peek.
Planned UnParenthood is a refreshing look at life without having children. It gives a voice to those without children who may be afraid to say what they really want to say.
It gives validity and understanding to those who are always explaining why they have made this lifestyle choice. It also gives parents some insight and thought into the attitudes they may have towards their friends and family who live life as non-parents.
It takes a hard look at the reality of a society that rewards parents automatically, while sometimes by default punishing those without children.
This book will explain why creating life does not necessarily have to be the main purpose of living.
It affirms that not having children is in fact an option, and is a choice worthy of respect.
