Singapore will allow single women aged 21 to 35 to freeze their eggs, but


The island nation follows in the footsteps of other Asian countries ... to freeze their eggs in a bid to prolong fertility and boost birth rates. 


Singapore will allow only married couples to fertilise the frozen eggs, raising questions over whether women should own the rights to their eggs any less if they do not choose to get married to men. It adds to a list of options that singles and LGBT families do not have the same access to – from public housing to adoption 


China, known to have forced sterilisations and abortions on women as part of its decades-long one-child policy, now says it will “intervene” in abortions for unmarried women and teens.
