Having a child at 40 isn't any more or less selfish then having a kid at 30 or 20. In fact chances are you are more mature and financially prepared to handle a child the older you get. And since the life expectancy for women is 70 world wide (wikipedia), she's got a pretty good chance of seeing her her kids graduate from college and possibly see her grandkids.
My hubby's grandmother just passed away last year...she was 96.
This. Many women/men, even in their 30s aren't ready to have a child or be good parents. Also, we have way too many children being born of young, unwed females and males. I don't see what the problem is, as long as you are healthy. We should be asking if it's OK for all these young, obese ladies to be having children? Are they able to take care of their children properly?
