Yes and No, Mostly No.
Almost any woman can get pregnant, but not with her own eggs. If you want to actually reproduce in the genetic sense as distinct from parenting a child from conception, you still need to get started a lot sooner. For best results, you should try to get pregnant before age 30. By age 43 almost all women are unable to have their own genetic children regardless of medical intervetion. I have corresponded with women as young as 32 who have had to use donor eggs because of age related deterioration in their own eggs.

Also, most 60 year-olds are not healthy enough to safely carry a child.

It just seems incredibly selfish AND foolish to have children at such an age. What are you going to do if you were to die at 70 or 80? Your child will only be 10/20 years old. Much to young to deal with the death of a parent. How can you possibly have the energy to look after a teenager and keep them in line? If you're having children at 60 you are thinking of yourself and yourself only. You are having children for YOU and not thinking of the consequences that your child will have to face.

Wow, so many of you have such strong opinions about age... Before long you will be 60+ and may not think you're so old.

I am 71 and I know I am old, I feel old, I look old I am older than my parents who died before me. I did not think that I would live this long. I do not drink alcohol or never smoked. But I feel much older than my age.
