Nicole Kidman Discusses Her Fertility Struggles

Too often the feminist message is that women can have whatever they want whenever they want it.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn’t always agree.  With beautiful Hollywood actresses getting pregnant well into their 40s, it is easy to buy into the feminist myth.  Nicole Kidman is one Hollywood actress who is speaking out about her fertility struggles according to People:

“Anyone that’s been in the place of wanting another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility,” the Rabbit Hole actress, 43, tells Australia’s 60 Minutes in an interview set to air Sunday night. “Fertility is such a big thing, and it’s not something I’ve ever run away from talking about.” 

This can’t be easy for her to speak out.  What other Hollywood actresses have spoken out about their fertility struggles?  As a college-age woman, is this something about which you are concerned?

I find this a very concerning subject. There are so many women that get caught up in their careers and prolong getting married. There are some that focus more on hooking up and preventing pregnancy than what it means down the road.
We live in a society where there seems to be an easy fix for everything and consequences are undermined since there is always a way around them.
Women need to be responsible and think, before they act…and think about the future early. Unfortunately our bodies aren’t able to support childbirth forever, so it’s important to think about early…if that’s one of your goals in life…or something that you know you’ll eventually regret.
