What If She Doesn’t Want Kids?

Hanna Brooks Olsen, age 24, gets angry that people (including her doctors) keep insisting that she's too young to get her tubes tied:

Being a biological parent will, I believe, never be the right decision for me. And it’s not because I don’t like children, or because I am selfish, or because of what any study about the happiness of non-parents says. It is because I genuinely do not want to bring a child of my own into the world. And yet, every single person I tell reassures me: "You’ll change your mind eventually." I don’t believe that I will.
