Subject: Cryopreserving the unborn?

(Note: I sent this to the Extropy list over the weekend.)

I don't know if anyone has thought of this before, but how about getting
Right to Life individuals to support abortion by cryopreserving aborted
fetuses?  Surely, cryopreserving them would be cheaper.  If we can get them
to fund this sort of thing, it would be a way to both spread cryonics and
defuse a very deep conflict in Western societies.

Perhaps we could analyze this problem from two angles.  One would be
technical feasability.  The other is whether Right to Life groups would be
willing to support-financially, politically, or morally-this option.

What do you think?
