Paul Sheehan in the Sydney Morning Herald writes In Praise of Female Sexuality.

It's time someone praised and defended reckless teenage girls and young women who behave badly, dress provocatively, engage in risky sex, and get pregnant. They are the normal ones. The rest of us are the deviants. They are behaving in the most natural way. The rest of us are mutants.
An eye-catching way to open an article that turns out to be socially conservative.

Children are the most important asset in our culture, so society should be structured around this central reality. Instead, we are structuring society around consumerism - a treadmill of bigger homes, more possessions, more holidays, more glamour - for which we run the risk of becoming impoverished. When the pattern of peak reproduction at peak fertility is broken, as it is now, women are forced by economic circumstances or social pressure to postpone pregnancy.
Often by having an abortion...an event that often haunts women through the years.

The tension between fertility and materialism is one of the great unresolved dilemmas of our time, not just for women, but for society.
