I wonder if, in the end, it will be only those people who bore and raised children who are looked after in their old age.
In the meantime, though, the childless-by-choice brigade will continue to make claims on a society into which they have invested nothing, they will continue to undermine the moral and cultural fabric, and will continue to deny and undermine the basic principle of responsibility between the past, present and future.
