What are your thoughts on people 40+ ttc a child?
If they wanna go for it - it's fine with me.
Do you look at a man having another child at 50 vs a women differently? Is one more socially acceptable or "right"
Depends. A very fit & healthy 50 yr old woman can likely do it without issue....but it still remains that she has to carry a baby. Now if two 50 yr olds hired a surrogate THEN you'd be talking about totally equal footing, otherwise there will always be more concern for mom's age than dad's age - although men aging effects risks too. Then sometimes having an older dad is good - it may mean you'll live a longer life. (read here
Do you think the pros of being an older parent, outweigh the cons?
If the parents are healthy & have a reasonable ability to keep up, then yes in general...but each case is different.
Would you try for a child at 40+?
Sure, assuming my health doesn't change.
Do you think there should be an age limit on ART? I have no opinion on that.
Interestingly enough - having kids at an older age actually expands life expectancy. I am trying to link a PDF here...if it does not work & someone else knows how- feel free to point me in the right direction.
It won't let me do it as a real link, but if highlighted & you click on open in new window, it worked for me...sorry, best I can do.
