The women in my family are angry. So angry they are talking about retaliation.

I’ll let them speak. Hang on to your hats.

Julia (23) Married

‘I’m moving to Canada.’ She brushes long brown hair from her eyes. “If they intend to force me to have children or avoid sex, that’s forced birth isn’t it? I mean even the UN says forced birth is wrong.

(I looked it up, she’s right -Article 7, 1 part g)

Jules leans back into our old leather sofa. Her eyes flash brightly and her mouth quivers. “If those fuckers think they can force me to have a single child in this country, they’re out of their minds. I will never have children in the USA. Ever.”

Julia is struggling to make ends meet, she’s already working two jobs and her husband works shift jobs 6 days a week. Neither of them can afford to have children.
