The doctors say the woman was in full health so good luck to her.
How about the fact that the children are massively more likely to be born with birth defects or be stillborn?

i.e. prejudice my ass. It's the woman that carries the baby to term and it's thus the woman who needs to be in better health. If it was simply a donated ovum there wouldn't be as much of a problem...
