The embryonic fountain of youth

From today's Electric New Paper, Singapore:

Australian movie stars, sportsmen and entrepreneurs alike are shelling out A$40,000 ($52,000) a pop for stem-cell treatment in China.

The controversial process is illegal Down Under, so they are queuing up for this 'fountain-of-youth' treatment overseas....

The radical procedure that uses fertilised eggs harvested from genetically-perfect female Chinese donors is said to wind back the clock on a range of diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, arthritis and chronic fatigue [emphasis mine].

How quickly the embryonic stem cell industry is morphing women into human hens. Where are the feminists?
