"The most attention employee benefits has garnered in a long time occurred when Facebook and Apple recently announced they were offering a new benefit to their employees: paying for procedures that will take a woman's eggs and freeze them for use in in-vitro fertilization in the future.... It created such a strong reaction because some people see it as an admission that a serious commitment to work is incompatible with having a family, at least for women. Others view it as denigrating motherhood and family, implicitly suggesting that work could be -- or perhaps even should be -- important enough to push having a family into the background, even for those who want a family."
