im sure everyone has some sort of opinions about these women having fertility treatment and having children when they are over 60yr so come on people lets hear yours, personally i dont think its fair on the children to have a mother in her 60's im not saying they wont be good mums that is not the issue but will they be around to see their children growing up.

i think that if they are up to having babies then good for them...and i think that this world is full of busy bodies who feel the need to citicize ppl they dont know anything about and i just wish ppl woul mind their own business sometimes

I think that if an older women or man wants to have a child/children than they should do foster care or adopt, there are more than enough children out there that could use a warm and loving home......

i think they are jus being selfish! on average the 66yr old woman will b dead by the time her child hits 13! its not fair on this child. other kids will pick on it cos of her age

It's selfish and inconsiderate.
It's more than likely that the poor child will end up being her parents carer by the time it's in it's teens.
The woman is thinking only of herself and her own wants and isn't considering the future of the child.

It's not only that, but its the sheer amount of both physical and mental energy you need when you have a baby or young child! I wonder sometimes if they realise just how tiring its gonna be - all those sleepless nights lol! I had my 2nd child at 40 and I'm now 47 and I wouldn't choose to have another child now, even at my age lol!!
