I think that was kind of risky. Doctor said she lied about her age, can you image a women 67 having a baby. the babies came out healthy but she was really taking a risk. Babies could of had birth defects. I don't think it affect a man. Do you? what do you think about the situation? she really wanted to have those babies.

What in the world would possess someone to want to even have children at 67 years old? That's not fair to the children at all. When they turn 10 she'll be 77 (that is if she survives that long)... then what? The children will be orphaned? She's being really selfish and wasn't thinking about anyone's needs but hers - how is a 69/70 year old woman going to be able to run after 2 rambunctions 2/3 year olders? If she wanted a child so darned bad she could have adopted an older child. Orphanages are overrun with older children that need love and a home.

No I don't think it's fair either to the child. the child won't have much time to be with Mother. when it gets grown.

missinghim you have taken the words out of my mouth! I feel the same way as you! The only words left to say are "more orphans".Very sad for the children?

Maybe she has other children that will take care of them.

I don't think that this woman is being very responsible. All she's thinking is 'I want a baby'. She's not seeing that she is 67 years old, so there are significant health risks involved for both her and the baby (Down's Syndrome is more likely, for one), and she won't have the energy needed to run around after a child for long, most likely. I just think it seems a little selfish, and what's going to happen to the kids when they get to school, and their mum's in her 70's? She might not be able to do things for them for long, and I know that a lot of people think that 'love is the important thing', she should also be able to care for her children.

Well she knew what she was doing I think she was selfish in thinking about having a baby at the age.

I seen her on the news she didn't look that old, but by the time the child get to be 20, she will be 87.

Wow that is amazing! She is soo lucky. She has a twin at age 67!! wow! I can't believe it! whereas me, I am only 25 and yet can't have a baby. I feel sad now. Oh well, it's been over a year now that I'm married but no luck still. I just envy the woman she is 67 years old!!! I wish all the best for her and her baby.

I think that was possible to happening marcia, even the woman old enough they still can have baby sometimes. I know this is weird but this is true already happening many times and recorded.

i think that the doctor or clinic that did this should be checking the ages of the people that are getting it done because it could have killed that poor women and could have harmed thoses babies for her to have them. i dont feel that it would matter if it was a man at that age because they really dont have any body changing when they make someone pregnant. i think that this lady has just done something that really isnt that good because how is she going to care for them for there life. she really had to of wanted children to go through all of that though so i guess to her it was all worse it.

I can't imagine myself taking that kind of risk. When I conceived my 2nd at the age of 35, I was already worried whether my baby would have birth defects. If I were in her shoes, I think I'd rather adopt a child than take the risk of giving birth to an abnormal baby.

I think that was really risky putting herself and her babies at risk of major problems. How could she lie about her age? Doesn't she have any medical records that they requested? It is really good to hear that she had healthy babies. God must have truly been looking after her and her babies. they are very blessed.
