Even with access to contraception, deciding whether and when to have children is anything but simple, especially these days.

In fact, a new survey finds that a third of Americans believe climate change may compel people to choose to have fewer children. And 73% agree that population growth is driving wildlife to extinction.

The Center for Biological Diversity has teamed up with filmmaker Maxine Trump to share her documentary "To Kid or Not to Kid", which explores family planning, the decision to be child-free, and how these choices are connected to the environment.

To watch the film, sign up anytime Feb. 11-14. You'll receive a link to watch it for free anytime Feb. 11-18. Then join the filmmaker and Center staff for a Saving Life on Earth webinar on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET.

ABOUT: "To Kid or Not to Kid"

https://www.tokidornottokid.com/tkontk-watchworldwide

This film aims to dispel the myth that living child-free is weird, selfish or somehow wrong.

Tired of being made to feel like “a waste of a uterus,” one woman fights back, for her right to decide whether to live a life openly without having kids. To Kid Or Not To Kid bravely plunges into an aspect of reproductive choice often considered too taboo to discuss, asking the question “Why can’t we talk about not having kids?”

From the award-winning director of the New York Times Critics’ Pick “Musicwood”, comes the first English feature documentary on the subject — aiming to dispel the myth that living childfree is weird, selfish or somehow wrong.
