Just because we can… does it mean we should?

A few weeks ago I posted a story about a 55year old British woman who had triplets through IVF. Today I heard the story of a 70year old woman having her first baby (using donor eggs).  The inevitable question arises… what is the cutoff? What are the ethics of treating infertility in parents of this age? What does it mean for the child? You can read the story here http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/may/10/indian-woman-in-her-70s-gives-birth-to-healthy-baby-boy
