August 4, 2016

(Australian Broadcasting Co.) – A woman who gave birth at the age of 62 after undergoing IVF has been labelled selfish by the president of the Australian Medical Association. In a tweet, Dr Michael Gannon said there were “greater priorities in women’s health”. “Anyone thought ahead to its teens? Selfish, wrong,” he said. Frances Perry Private Hospital in Melbourne’s inner north said the woman was recuperating after the baby’s birth.
