Am I the only one who thinks this is terribly selfish?
The world's oldest 'new mother' died at the age of 69. She gave birth to twins when she was 66 after lying to the in vitro clinic about her age. She was a single parent.
So now the twin 2 1/2 year olds are alone. She had planned to find herself a younger man to help raise them, but did not.
This just pisses me off. Giving birth is supposed to be an act of selflessness in my opinion, not selfishness. I know it could happen to any mother, but to give birth at 69, and as a single parent, just seems wrong to me.
The children are too young to really remember their mother when they grow up. I hope they find a wonderful new home.
