My current read is the phenomenal The Age of the Child by Kristen Tsetsi. This book is set in a human rights hell and there have been times when I had to set it aside for a bit and be thoroughly grateful for being a South African.
She stopped, put the car in park. Toddlers. Babies laid like flowers at a memorial in the light at the stone base.
When a genuinely altruistic government decides it's time to "think of the children," what could possibly go wrong?
It's the worst time in the nation's history of reproductive legislation for someone like Katherine, who doesn't want a child, to learn she's pregnant. The ratification of the pro-creation Citizen Amendment has not only criminalized the birth control that would have prevented Katherine's accidental pregnancy, but abortion and most miscarriages are illegal, too.
In this environment, not having a child will be a challenge.
Katherine isn't afraid of a challenge.
29 years later...
It's probably the worst possible time in the nation's history of reproductive legislation for Millie – well, for someone like Millie – to decide rather suddenly that she wants to be pregnant.
Since the recent implementation of parent licensing, getting pregnant requires government approval, and even attempting to cheat the system carries a sentence of imprisonment in a mysterious facility known as Exile.
In this environment, a pregnancy for someone like Millie is all but impossible.
Millie doesn't believe in "impossible."
