Artist Injected With Cells From Aborted Foetuses

Jörg Immendorff, the publicly-funded artist who went on trial last year after being caught indulging in cocaine-and-prostitute parties, went to China last February so that his brain could be injected with the cells of an aborted foetus.

The artist is dying of the nerve-paralysing syndrome ALS, and appears to think that this bizarre procedure may yet save his life. The artist's doctor is deeply sceptical of the treatment and Immendorff travelled to China without informing him about the futile plan.
