News Story:

Elizabeth Adeny, a 66 year old British woman, is expecting a child which she conceived using IVF.  She is a divorcee, and will be the oldest woman to deliver a child in British history.  The world record is held by an Indian woman who delivered twins at age 70 last year.

Commentary:

These artificially conceived pregnancies, after the mother has gone through menopause, strike me as extremely selfish.  These mothers will be lucky to survive to see their children reach adulthood.
