Elderly Couple In Their 70s Welcome Their First Child

I stumbled across this video and immediately thought of Sarah from the Bible. From those who aren't familiar with Sarah, she was a woman who wasn't capable of bearing a child -- that is until she was 90 years old. Yes, you read that correctly. Similar to Sarah, the woman depicted in the video below gave birth at the age of 70 and her husband happens to be 79. The couple has been married for 49 years and this is their first child.

After watching the video, of course I had to go read the comment section and the comments were absolutely disgusting. Several people called the couple selfish for having a child at such an old age and saying they should have adopted years ago. People seem to be upset because they are focused on the fact that the couple happens to be so old, the child will only have his parents around for a short amount of time, but is that really what's most important? What about the couples happiness or the fact that they might actually live another 30 years. Anything is possible, we learned that when we saw this lady miraculously give birth at the age of 70.

What are your views on the topic at hand?

Do you think the couple is selfish for wanting to have a child at such an age?
