When a Granny gives birth to her grandson is there something wrong? I chanced upon this article on the net http://bit.ly/euQ1RQ

I wonder what the TED Community feels about the rather intriguing subject of the article esp. as it pertains to Medical and / or Legal ethics

  • Feb 20 2011: My aunt gave her kidney to her son after his kidneys failed. He died and she lives with a single kidney. Each parent does what they think gives most joy to their child, each child takes what he thinks he/she can from their parent. So the moral ethic is out of the way. If the medical fraternity feels she is fit enough to bear her grandson, and the average age of motherhood is rapidly increasing anyway, I find this largely justified.

    i am torn however when i think whether i would have asked my mom for such a favour (answer is never!) and whether i would do it for my daughter (depends...)
