Just from reading this content, and not the article itself;

I love how it's neglected to mention that such choice kept humanity alive.
Older Parents have a shorter lifespan than younger parents (obviously).
It was necessary, when early human society consisted solely of men out working and hunting/gathering food and women staying at home to care for the young, for mothers to be able to look after their children solely by themselves for long periods of time.
I would rather know I have a fit 25 year old guarding my offspring than some rickety old 60 year old (who more than likely would not have survived childbirth anyway).
As a result; any 'long fertility' genes that exist in women were lost as men predominantly mated only with young, fertile women.
