67-Year-Old Had In Vitro Fertilization
A 67-year-old who gave birth to twins last month lied to a Los Angeles fertilization clinic.
A 67-year-old woman who is believed to be the world’s oldest new mother told a British Sunday newspaper she lied to a U.S. fertility clinic — saying she was 55 — to get treatment.
Carmela Bousada said in her first interview since she gave birth to twin boys on Dec. 29 that she sold her house in Spain to raise $59,000 to pay for in vitro fertilization at a California clinic, The News of the World reported.
“I think everyone should become a mother at the right time for them,” Bousada said in a video of the interview provided to Associated Press Television News.
It strikes me as unethical to artificially impregnate a woman at 55. Then again, clearly, they weren’t too awfully concerned with such things if they are just taking people’s word on their age.
