I came across this posting at VivirLatino.com and then an article at Scotsman.com about a 67 year old woman in Spain who gave birth to twins after undergoing fertility treatment (she is now the oldest mother on record).
Now, I don’t want to be mean and I do think it’s great that this woman was able to have children (it is her first birth), but I’m just not sure this is fair for the babies. This woman might not even live to be around for their teenage years. Is there a point where one needs to step back and think – Ok, I might be physically able and science may provide me the means to become a mother, but maybe I shouldn’t? Is there a point where one becomes too old to enter into motherhood? Actually, this applies to men also, since they too can become fathers at a late age. But, should they?
