Subject: cryo preserving fetuses
Date: Fri, 21 Jan 2000 11:54:37 -0500

    Without commenting upon the issue of whether or not abortion should or
shouldn't be available to people I must say that cryopreserving fetuses
strikes me as an off the wall idea.

    First of all the process of abortion often injures the fetuses and, many
times, actually fails to remove the fetus intact. Of course nano tech might
allow as easily for the reassembly as it does for reworking artherosclerosis
but it almost sounds like the cow from a hamburger cliche.

    Also I imagine rows of little beds ala Brave New World once these babies
are revived.  Who would want to raise them when its easy enough to make your
own kids? Answer - an organization, institution or a few dedicated

    There's enough to do in caring for a reviving people with families
waiting for them. Can't see where we would be going with dewars full of
aborted, damaged and unwanted fetuses.

    Just my opinion. I could be wrong....
