60 Year Old Woman Gives Birth

Classify this under the category RIDICULOUS!!

HACKENSACK, N.J. - The psychologist who gave birth to twin boys at age 60 said Thursday she was on a mission to let women know they have choices.

Really? We have choices? Since when? It's rather hilarious to tell us that we have choices if we're 60 years old and have just given birth to twins. But when we make a CHOICE to terminate a pregnancy then we're not supposed to have choices. When we make the CHOICE not to become a mother, we're labeled a militant feminist, selfish, a bitch, not a REAL woman, or whatever the flavor of the month is.

"Age has been redefined," Birnbaum said.

No honey, age hasn't been redefined. You're still 60. Nothing has changed about that!! I'm still the age I am. Nothing has changed about that. Age hasn't been redefined just because you gave birth at 60.

"I hope I'm a role model for my daughter, that when she gets older that she can make her own decisions based on who she is rather than what society dictates," she said.

How old must her daughter be to be able to make her own decisions? She's 29 for Christ sakes. She is certainly old enough to make her own decisions, especially when deciding that you're insane for giving birth at 60.

She said that people who consider new motherhood at her age inappropriate "need to get ready for what's coming up in our society."

What the hell is this woman talking about? What's coming up in society? Robot mothers? 100 year old women giving birth? Men giving birth? Women becoming pregnant without the help of a man in any way? Seriously, what the hell is this woman talking about?

The scariest part of it all is that she's a shrink!! God help her patients!!
