A Spanish woman who became the world’s oldest new mother when she gave birth in 2006 to twin boys at the age of 66 has died. Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara, passed away on Saturday at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer.
The case of Maria was brought up a number of times in the very passionate programme we had last week asking whether everyone has the right to be a parent.
Maria was adament at the time she conceived that she would be around to see her children into adulthood. If you agreed with her right to have a child before, do you still now? What’s your reaction to the news she has died?
