Doctors are now able to help woman at the age of 50 and beyond conceive and bear children.
But should they? No. A resounding no.
There’s a reason a woman can’t naturally have a baby after a certain age. It’s the body’s way of protecting her and the child. Having that baby could kill her. And if she is lucky enough to carry that baby full term, the child probably won’t be lucky enough to have parents past junior high.
All these overly zealous ‘I-have-to-have-a baby’ people need to actually put the baby’s needs first. Show the selfless intentions that are always automatically associated with parenthood…and don’t have a baby when you are well past the age when you can somewhat guarantee that you will be around to usher them through their developmental years.
I lost both my parents at a young age due to sudden death and disease. You never get over that loss. It colors your entire life, your every choice.
We shouldn’t set up future generations to be practically assured of losing their parents when they are still babies.
