Oh bother! My mother always said I was too impetuous. If I'd only waited another few decades to become a human embryo ... I could have enjoyed the "respect" of medical scientists like Sue Hawes and Megan Munsie (Letters, 15/7) by providing my "valuable" cells for research. Instead I've endured, unrecognised, the pain and boredom of post-natal drudgery. Never mind. At least I'm here to moan about it.
