Sitting in a room full of women, I decided to engage in conversation with the other women. The subject eventually turned to motherhood. Of the 20 or so women present, I was only one of five who did not have children. I was the only one of the attendees with a visible disability. The women asked the childless attendees whether they planned to have children some day. This question was not posed to me. Instead, I was asked whether she can have children.
