German woman Annegret Raunigk already has 13 children but when her youngest daughter said she wanted a little brother or sister Annegret decided it was time for another pregnancy , this time with the help of fertility treatment in Ukraine.

A 65-year-old German woman has given birth to quadruplets after undergoing an artificial insemination procedure, Germany's RTL television reports.
It says Annegret Raunigk had three boys and a girl by Caesarean section at a Berlin hospital on Tuesday.
They were born prematurely at 26 weeks but have a "good chance of surviving".
Annegret Raunigk - who already has 13 children and seven grandchildren - is the world's oldest woman to have quadruplets
www.bbc.co.uk...


IVF has its uses and can be a godsend to those unable to have children naturally but giving a 65 year old mother of 13 four more children is just stupid and in my opinion unethical.

At 26 weeks the children do stand a good chance of surviving but they also stand a good chance of having serious medical complications that could effect them for the rest of their lives.

Just because we could doesn't have to mean we should!

Dear Lord! Why didn't any health professionals say 'No way lady, you're too old to carry a child to full term safely. Children aren't accessories! Tell your daughter to wait until she can have her own kids or make friends with the young kids on the street. No. No. No!'

Who would think it is appropriate to use IVF on a 65yr old???????

The doctor/doctors that did this should have their license revoked.

I'm pretty sure some Germans will say it's a blessing due to Germany's low birthrate.

Liberal social welfare policies always promote irresponsibility.

She didn't have invetro. She was artificially inseminated after taking fertility drugs. That means these babies came the old fashioned way as far as fertilization goes. Sperm meet egg. Egg, sperm. Have at it. Of course the meeting was arranged and its success was sort of guaranteed. And no one got dinner....or flowers

There was no IVF. She had artificial insemination. Sperm introduced into the vagina just not by the usual method.
Now I didn't click on the link but from the portion posted it said artificial insemination. That's different from IVF. IVF=sperm and egg meet through injection of sperm into egg, growth begins in a petre dish. Artificial insemination=sperm introduced into vagina and allowed to seek and fertilize eggs randomly. Fertility drugs causes several eggs to mature and be released at the same time.
At 65 she should have stopped menstruating years ago but I guess the right combo of drugs could wake up those old overies. She risks downs syndrome with old eggs.

Forgive my ignorance.

That makes it perfectly acceptable.

So did I, lol. For a few seconds, i was thinking, "it's not a birth canal anymore, it's a landing strip for a space shuttle!"

It's funny how times change. Remember when Adrienne Barbeau had twins in her 50's & people pitched a fit? Doesn't get the same reaction anymore. I don't see women in their 60's having babies as some commonplace deal, but in another decade or 2, it probably won't be a big deal, either.

That's irresponsible of the doctors who helped. And she's outta' her mind.

Not only did she put the lives of the children at risk, but chances are that she'll die off before they are adults and she'll leave them motherless. I'm sure that, at age almost 70 she won't have the energy to be chasing around four two year olds either.

I didn't say that. I was just trying to clear up a medical point that might be important. IVF takes a lot more technology to achieve. Artificial insemination anyone with a turkey baster and a volunteer can accomplish.
