Over 30 years ago, the National Organization for Non-Parents (which became National Alliance for Optional Parenthood, or NAOP), deemed August 1 Non-Parents Day. I say we gather our forces on this day and urge 60 Minutes to do a “do over” segment on the childfree from the one they did with Marcia Davis in 1974. Here’s an example of something to send to 60:
Dear 60 Minutes:
In the 70s there was an organization called the National Organization for Non-Parents (which became National Alliance for Optional Parenthood, or NAOP), and made August 1 Non-Parents Day. This year in recognition of this day those who do not have children by choice want to write you.
On the blog La Vie Childfree, we learned of a segment your show did in 1974 on the NAOP and the topic of not having children by choice. A woman who appeared on that segment has quite the story to tell about how negatively 60 Minutes portrayed her and her husband and those who don’t have children by choice, and how it affected her life afterwards. Part of her story is here.
