So a 60 year old gave birth to twin boys...I'm curious what our members here think of this. Based on the article, they chose this pregnancy. I just don't see this as responsible parenting. Assuming they live to 80, which more or less is the average life expectancy..a few years more..these kids are going to be burying their parents at such a young age. Also what happens if the parents don't age well, have health problems, memory problems, other issues associated with old age, thats going to be a terrible burden on these kids. While I strongly feel this was a bad idea, even while writing this I know the flip side of the argument. "Its better to love and lost than to never have loved at all", in this case its not exactly love but life. Without this birth these kids never exist and get to experience what we do. I'm 22 years old and my father died when I was 15, when it first happened I felt cheated out of the chance to know my dad. His death wasn't a result of old age though, he had a heart condition and it stopped in the middle of the night when he was in his early 50's. I'm lucky enough to still have my mom with me. I just try to put myself in the position of these kids and what they'll go through...its not exactly a normal life. I can't really organize my thoughts well like I want to on account of it being 4AM, but how do you guys feel about this?
