Is 65 too old to become a mother again?

A German woman is set to become world’s oldest mother of quadruplets.

The 65-year-old Berlin woman, who already has 13 children and seven grandchildren, is due to give birth in the summer.

Annegret Raunigk, 65, has revealed she’s expecting quadruplets because her youngest daughter, nine, wanted a little brother or sister.

She’s been trying to get pregnant via artificial insemination over the last year and a half, according to German broadcaster RTL, and her latest pregnancy was the result of artificial insemination using both donated sperm and eggs.

What are your views on this.  Do you think that it is ethical for a menopausal woman to create a life via science? Just because you can does it mean you should?
