ITALY – Anatolia Vertadella, a 100-year-old woman, has given birth to a baby after a successful transplant. The controversial transplantation is often criticized by medical professionals because of their advanced age.
The illegal and controversial surgical operation was carried out in a private clinic in Turkey, where the European law on ovarian transplantation does not apply, admits the one-hundred-year-old mother who refuses to disclose the name of the clinic where the operation was performed.
Although the husband of Miss Vertadella has died since 1998, the widow of the centenarians has found a sperm donor to make the birth possible.
“I still love my deceased husband and desire to stay a widow until I leave this earth, but I needed the seed of this young fervent Catholic to fulfill God’s will,” she concluded.
This 100-year-old Italian has given birth to a 9-pound baby after a controversial transplantation of ovaries criticized by doctors for their old age, Rivista Napoli reports.
I am so grateful to have given birth to my 17th child. This is a true blessing and a testament to the power of the creator” she told local journalists.
“I could not reproduce since I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.” For a long time I believed that God punished me, but God is real and he hears our prayers, has given me fertility at an age that is nothing short of a miracle. , recognizes the fervent centenarian Catholic.
The operation was completely legal in Turkey and was carried out by a handful of medical specialists. According to medical reports, the woman is in good health at her age and has many good years to share with her child.
