Not making the best case for sexagenarian birth

Exhibit A:



Aaaaaah! Run for the hills!

I can't help but be uncharitable here, even if she did just have her thirteen baby at the age of sixty-two. Is this not one of the scariest photos you've ever seen? There is a reason women go through menopause: to prevent babies from having to bond with faces like THAT!

(Very un-doula spirit I realize, but puh-leez).

Exhibit B:

Sixty-two year old French woman reveals her new baby's father is her brother. It's not quite as tacky as it sounds, thanks to artifical insemination and donor eggs.

Is this really the direction we want artificial reproductive technology to be taking us? Frankly, it creeps me out a little bit.
