Is that not against the law in Norway as it is in most other places? It 
paints a dismal view of the world if the law is too ready to step in and 
prevent a cryopreservation (which is not going to harm anmyone) but is not 
willing to protect citizens against common violence. I appreciate that 
domestic violence cases probably don't earn lawyers much money, as opposed 
to long and detailed argument about something as exciting (whether you 
propose or oppose it) as cryonics, but whatever market forces may dictate, 
people want and expect basic protection from the legal system.
