    I mean, 70 year old giving birth to triplets??? And if you keep watching, they talk about otherh women past 60 having babies, including one who's a GREAT grandmother who gave birth to her TWELFTH child!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shock:

    And the doctor in Indian fertility clinic says "it doesn't concern me at all and who cares for the children once the parents are gone is NOT my responsibility" in regards to the age of these women, who may not live long enough to care for their kids through adulthood.

    My wife was watching something like that on TV a couple weeks ago. We were both flabergasted. There is a reason why women go through the "change". Just because medical science CAN do something, doesnt mean it SHOULD.

    Now, I'm totally against this irresponsible practice, but what do you say to the argument that a healthy 25 year old having the procedure done, and giving birth to triplets can die of complications, or die by a freak accident before the child's 3rd birthday?

    The 70 year old age group could theoretically live long enough to see the child to their 18th birthday. Financially, maybe they're well off (maybe not that lady in India)...but quality? Anyone know any vibrant 70 year olds who can chase after a 5 year old? :shock:

    It's all crazy. I also read about one lady who gave birth to her daughter's kid(s), since her daughter could not carry to term. But at least, once she gave birth, she is not the child's primary caregiver anymore. It was just "rented space" in her uterus. Hehhee

    I say that anomolies to statistics exist but decisions shouldnt be based off of those anomolies. Yes the 70 year old might live longer, but the odds are that the 25 year old will out live that 70 year old by many many years.

    I am more likely to accept that a 60 year old carries a child for her daughter if the daughter is not able to than some one who just wants to have a baby. And by the way, the 70 year old wil be 75 when the child is 5 and god help them when they become teenagers where the energy is really needed:shock:

    Yeah, and unfortunately, it's crazy doctors like that one in India that will attract foreigners who can't their own doctors to perform those procedures on them...and he'll perform the procedure, and send them on their way back to their home country, where they could die after a few years, leaving their young for us to care for. Heaven forbid their kid does not have any disabilities! The doctor is obviously just in it for the money, and it's so blatant in his statement about his "hands off" policy after the babies are born.


    Yeah, see, I'm sure there are elderly people who can...but I know dozens of women in their 70s -- old aunts and relatives, and not one of them could chase down a toddler. I plan on being an active centenarian, but the last thing I want to do is chase down my teenaged kid!

    Hopefully it was in vitro because that would just be sick.

    It is possible that a perfectly healthy 25 year old living in the United States can die giving birth to one baby. You can also have a sudden allergic reaction to aspirin and die. The chances of that happening are low, which is why people still have babies and people still take aspirin.

    The chances that a 70 year old that gives birth will die before their child is independent is very high.

    I think it's irresponsible to have kids when you know there's a good chance you won't be able to provide for them and take care of them. A person that does that is being selfish and having kids to satisfy their own selfish needs and is not thinking about the well being of the child. That doesn't only apply to 70 year olds, but young people that know they are unable to properly care for a child as well.

    She was technically 4 years old when she got pregnant. Crazy! Too bad DNA testing didn't exist back then.
