Last week, Caroline Miranda proclaimed that “childfree adults are not selfish” in a column for Time. “This should not seem that radical,” she suggests, yet she details many ways that people treat her own childlessness as selfish. Miranda offers a defense, naming her care of parents and friends as visible signs that she and her husband are not selfish. Perhaps it will seem surprising for a Catholic moral theologian, but I agree with much of what she writes. Yet in her attempt to discuss why being childless is not selfish, Miranda undermines her own argument.
