Abstract

We have all either been asked or seen others asked: “So when are you going to have children?” — at family gatherings, as a casual aside by colleagues or even by complete strangers. There is societal judgement around having children, not having children, when to have children and how many children to have. Even if we put aside the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, 1973 and with it remove long-held rights around access to abortion in the US, there are numerous other ways in which reproductive choices are becoming weaponized, and what may seem to some an innocuous question is racialized, gendered and loaded.
