I think that older women should have the option to use unnatural ways such as assisted reproductive technology to get pregnant. I think it is a great new option that women who are older such as in their early 40's can use to become a parent. For example my aunt is in her early forties and married late. She is a wonderful person and will make the most caring mother. She desperately wanted to be a mother but could not get pregnant naturally. Now she is due in April with a child and is so thrilled. I think that parents who choose this option will often make great parents because they want to have their children so badly that they will spend a lot of energy on raising their children and their children will be important to them. I also think this is a great option for younger mothers who cannot get pregnant naturally. The mothers who go through this tedious process obviously want to have a child badly. They are bound to care very much for their child. I think that one of the most important qualities a parent should have is wanting to be a caring parent for their child. Therefore I think that this new technology will create families that are very connected and dedicated to each other and this is only a good thing. I do have an issue when it comes to mothers at the age of 6o or so giving birth. I do not think that this is fair to the child to have a child at this old of an age in life. I think that mothers should be able to use this technology until the age of late 40's or at an age where they can prove they are healthy and have the energy to care adequately for their child. Overall I am excited about the new opportunities the technology is creating for new caring happy families such as my new cousin on the way!
