Rose Rock, mom to comedian Chris Rock is interviewed in Maclean’s. She had ten kids, fostered seven and says this:
Q: You must have liked being pregnant.
A: I did. When I say that to people, they go, “What?!” But I loved the fact that God gave me that gift. I’ve never gotten over the feeling that I’m the first person that ever gave birth, because I’m so in awe of the fact that I have the ability to carry life. And everybody was so happy waiting for the baby, even the older children.
Sounds like a strong woman to me. Compare and contrast then, because I have to be a bitter pill somewhere, with those pro-choice activists who declare that “women are not incubators.” True enough… To them–women are not incubators, merely robots, capable of having sex, who then use their God-given gifts to sit at very important desk jobs.
I have to go push some paper now. Important paper, though.
