2 Voluntary Childlessness
Create a T chart- pros and cons of having kids Discuss with people at your table, why you do or don’t want to have kids

3 Voluntary Childlessness
Voluntary Childlessness- People who choose not to have kids

4 What do you think of this quote?
“ Children are the cloth of the body. Without Children, you are naked.”

5 Could it be… That a man’s wealth is measured, in part, by the number of children he has? Or that a woman’s value to her husband is determined by her ability to bear children? Do you agree that to some, marriage without children is seen as incomplete?

6 Involuntary Childlessness
Involuntary Childlessness- Couple or individual who wants to have children and cannot This state is generally the result of one of two factors: 1. No partner % of infertility due to physical problems

7 Option 1- Fertility Drugs
Drugs release hormones that induce ovulation to boost egg production and make uterus more receptive to embryo implantation 40-45% success rate with women who ovulate As cheap as $60 a cycle Can result in a “litter”

8 Option 2- Artificial Insemination
Specially “washed” sperm is inserted directly into uterus- often done in conjunction with drugs Best for low sperm count and women with acidic vaginas Easy to do, in doctors office 15-20% success rate Under $1000 Lets check out a video: (6:00) ‘Modern methods of fertility treatment’

9 Option 3- Get some different sperm
Dads sperm is infertile so pay $300-$400 and get someone else’s Estimated 15% get pregnant in one cycle, 80% after 6 cycles Article- ‘Fathers Day- Two non-traditional dads, two different paths Then Video (9:27) ‘Finding Free Sperm Donors Online’ Then article ‘Why this sperm donor is being ordered to pay child support’

Take eggs out, fertilize in a lab, embryo develops, plant back inside uterus Good for women with endometriosis 41% (under 35), 32% (35-37), 23% (38-40) $8000 per cycle + drug costs

11 Option 5- Egg Donation Older couple gets young egg, fertilized with male sperm, implanted in old uterus $15000-$30000 Would you donate your eggs? Would you sell them?
