Time Magazine's 'Childfree Life' Controversy: What Message Does It Send?

The latest cover of Time Magazine is stirring up controversy with its headline, “The Childfree Life: When Having It All Means Not Having Children.”


Was This News Editor Fired for Headline Criticizing Obama!?


The article suggests that more couples are choosing not to have kids because it can allow them to lead a more fulfilling life. It cites a Pew Research study that shows childlessness has risen across every racial and ethnic group in America, with one in five American women who do not have children during their childbearing years, compared to one in 10 in the ‘70s.

At a time when Hollywood is glamorizing motherhood and baby bumps, can you still have it all without having kids? Governor Mike Huckabee shared his thoughts on Fox and Friends Weekend. What scares the governor, are people who don’t want kids but have them anyway. “For some people, maybe [not having kids] is the best decision, especially for people maybe who write articles like this,” he quipped.

On the other side of this argument, he said, “I don’t ever want to get to the point where we diminish the idea of not only creating the next generation, but training them to be our replacements – which is the highest particular calling that we have as human beings.”

Huckabee ended the discussion on this note: “I cannot imagine life without the incredible joy I’ve had from raising my children. […] Take every dime I’ve ever earned, take everything I ever owned, and I would give it away freely for the joy of holding my children and grandchildren in my arms.”

What do you think of this message?
