Grandma, 48, Pregnant-With Daughter's Triplets

Image: Triplets, by Billy Alexander (ba1969) on freeimages.comPat Anthony of the northern Transvaal town of Tzaneen is carrying three fetuses from an in vitro fertilization of her daughter's ova by her son-in-law's sperm.

The babies are due in October 1987.

Law Prof. Sybrand Strauss of the University of South Africa said he hoped the pending bill would be amended to include surrogate motherhood, in light of the Tzaneen case.

He predicted Parliament would follow British law, which outlaws surrogate motherhood for profit.

The Afrikaans-language newspaper Beeld today quoted the local Roman Catholic priest in Tzaneen as saying he wasn't sure he would be able to baptize the babies.

Catherine

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
