Whether a child is loved or more likely to be born with Downs or another syndrome are 2 different things.
I could love a Downs baby with all my heart.
That does not change the fact that if I'm predisposed to having a Downs baby (predisposition is a KEY factor here), that the older I am the more likely I will have a Downs baby.
As a woman that will turn 40 soon, and was just informed that perimenopause is the stage I'm in... No, the biological clock is not a fallicy...
That said, a dear friend of now 45 had wonderful healthy twin boys not to long ago. Two 40 y/o friends very healthy babies... and a now late 30 friend on her way to a healthy baby God willing!

Unlike men, who produce new sperm daily throughout most of their lifetime, women are born with all their eggs in one — okay, two baskets (ovaries). To be more precise, a woman is born with about one to two million immature eggs, or follicles, in her ovaries.
Throughout her life, the vast majority of follicles will die through a process known as atresia. Atresia begins at birth and continues throughout the course of the woman's reproductive life. When a woman reaches puberty and starts to menstruate, only about 400,000 follicles remain. With each menstrual cycle, a thousand follicles are lost and only one lucky little follicle will actually mature into an ovum (egg), which is released into the fallopian tube, kicking off ovulation. That means that of the one to two million follicles, only about 400 will ever mature.
Relatively little or no follicles remain at menopause, which usually begins when a woman is between 48-55 years of age. The remaining follicles are unlikely to mature and become viable eggs because of the hormonal changes that come along with menopause.
So, Yeah, a woman runs out of time... hence the reference to the clock... And some women do great coming in at the very last minute. There are tests that can determine egg quality...
That website you quoted is a disgusting sex-promoting one, that instructs on masturbation, homosexual sex, including "fisting," recommends contraception, etc. I think you could find the information on some other website.
Here's their index, notice under fetishes it lists bestiality.
