Never Too Old? Indian Woman, 72, Gives Birth to Twins

This story out of India makes me wonder how old it too old for children? One of the twins was apparently conceived through in vitro fertilization.

How old do you think is too old to be a parent? Would you have children at 72?

I genuinely feel for people who want a child, but 72 seems a little on the high side to me. I'm afraid these children may lose both parents at a very young age. I would not want to give birth at 72, although I completely admire this woman who seems to have formidable strength.
