It depends on the family. Some families have better genes. My mother's family have been having kids in their 40's for centuries and there have not been any children with developmental issues that I am aware of.

My grandparents had my mother when they were 40 and 50 years old. My grandfather was born in the 19th century.

But they were not very responsible people anyway if that makes you feel better.

Some mothers use crack while they're pregnant and the kids turn out ok. Doesn't make it right.

Going around preaching what is "right" and what is "wrong" is a futile task because when it comes to ethics we all have different opinions. If we take into account our world overpopulation maybe it's not right to have any children at any age.

Some families have better genes and lower chances of getting kids with developmental issues. Others like my cousins once removed have a difficult time having normal kids even when the women get pregnant in their 20's.

The OP had no problem saying who should reproduce or not.

Do you think it's ok to do irresponsible things like have kids late or use drugs while pregnant? It doesn't matter if someone has better genetics, it still causes a higher risk of damage being done.

Again not all people have problems with having kids late in life. Here's the stats for autism;

From 1990 to 1999, the risk of having a child with autism was:

1.6 per 1,000 women under age 25
2.3 per 1,000 women aged 25-29
3.1 per 1,000 women aged 30-34
3.85 per 1,000 women aged 35-39
4.4 per 1,000 women aged 40 and older


Down syndrome and other

Mom's Age Risk for all trisomies
20 1 in 526
25 1 in 476
30 1 in 384
35 1 in 192
38 1 in 102
39 1 in 83
40 1 in 66

Now tell me what are the chances of hurting a child if you decide to cross the Palmetto with 7 children.

"Women over 35 have an increased risk of the following complications during pregnancy: miscarriage, placenta previa, fetal distress, cesarean birth, high blood pressure, diabetes, ectopic pregnancy and premature delivery. The baby is also at risk for low birthweight, genetic disorders like Down syndrome, asphyxia, brain bleeds and stillbirth."

"Egg Quality and Birth Defects

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine also points out that a woman's egg quality declines as she nears menopause. The result is increased risk for miscarriage and birth defects relating to egg quality and fertility health. Women over 40 may produce eggs with too many or two few chromosomes, which can result in conditions like Down syndrome or the spectrum of trisomy disorders. Other age-related health issues, like high blood pressure, can affect a pregnancy, potentially leading to premature labor."

I didn't know the problem was so prevalent. I have never seen anyone attempting to cross an expressway but I have seen people walking along the emergency lane.

There used to be cross walk bridges in certain places. Why did they take them down?

Don't know, but between NW58st and NW103st there are no pedestrian crossings under the Palmetto.
Not even on 74th st where the metro station is.
