Well said, Christine.
ATTICUS succinctly nails the matter. Selfish women, wanting to enjoy the same experiences as most other women of a certain age - ie having a family and enjoying an income - without realising they waived those rights when they embarked upon 7yrs+ training and education to become valued members of the profession.
How are we to weed out such women, who will insist upon leaving our intrasigent practices high and try when they have the temerity to become pregnant, if we can't interrogate them at interview as to the status of their reproductive systems, relationship status and financial standing?
Best course of action is to not employ women who have the lack of personal ambition demonstrated by allowing themselves occupy ages 20-45. Or, if you simply must employ them, don't promote them. Or give them positions of responsibility. They'll only let you down.
Put your money where your mouth is, Atticus, and name your practice.
