67-Year-Old Gives Birth

Chances are, the child who lived will have only scant memories of her mother.  How much time and energy does a woman nearly 70 have for a baby?  I am only 41 with five kids–I don’t want more.  I see men in their mid-fifties with pre-schoolers and can read the exhaustion, the uncertainty on their faces. 

I think it’s wonderful that modern science allows people who want children to have them.  The drawback to that is people who shouldn’t want children–like the elderly–having them.
