Abstract:

ABSTRACT

The paper explores the ethics of post-menopausal motherhood by looking at the case of Adriana Iliescu, the oldest woman ever to have given birth (so far 1 ). To this end, I will approach the three most common objections brought against the mother and/or against the team of healthcare professionals who made it happen: the age of the mother, the fact that she is single, the appropriateness of her motivation and of that of the medical team.

Keywords: gamete donation; medically assisted reproduction; mono-parental families; parental motivation; postmenopausal motherhood
