You're not having a "kid". you're not having a "baby".
That's the point most often overlooked.
The "cute little baby" will outgrow his/her Pampers in a matter of months.
Then, you'll have to deal with the mind-boggling responsibility of bringing up a person
, and worry about their well-being, for the rest of
Furthermore, ANYONE, any punk, any institution or individual with an agenda, can manipulate you like a marionette by simply threatening the well-being
of your children.
(Tolstoy described this wonderfully well in "Anna Karenina"!)
It's a tough one to bear.
And while I have tremendous admiration for dedicated parents, as I said before, I really cannot see why anyone in their right mind would WANT to
assume such an emotional and mental burden for life.
