Lee called for women should marry and give birth as early as possible. At the age before 35 is a critical conception period, only 4 embryos could be formed in every ten eggs while the rest will be eliminated. When it comes to the 40s, only two eggs can be fertilized, which greatly reduces the fertilized rate.
