Short Description: 
Karen Foster discusses her book "No Way Baby" and the choice to not have a child

The vast majority of Americans follow the dictum to "grow up, get married, and have kids." But studies show increasing numbers are bucking the trend. As many as one-in-five American women ends her childbearing years without having borne a child, compared to one-in-ten in the 1970's. Why are so many taking a pass on parenthood? What are they giving up? What do they gain? How do their choices impact the ecomomy, the environment, the culture? Delve into these issues with host Stephanie Potter and Karen Foster, author of No Way Baby! Exploring, Understanding and Defending the Decision NOT to have Children. Call-in's welcome!
