Subject: To: D. Pizer -- Please Keep Cryonics Out of Your Lawsuit

If you are determined to fund a lawsuit to keep religions from saying 
certain things, please do it solely on the merits of issues like the 
illegality of making unsubstantiated claims, and make no mention of 
cryonics in it anywhere.

Cryonics won't help your legal arguments anyway, as nobody knows yet if 
people will ever be revived from it and therefore there are presently no 
aggrieved persons.  Mentioning cryonics may even distract from your 
position being heard, from the noise created by public scorn and ridicule.

But as others have pointed out, the main reason I ask is that if cryonics 
becomes linked to a lawsuit against the churches, we could see legislative 
and regulatory problems that make the Ted Williams-related stuff look like 
a jaywalking ticket.   Even after millions of dollars of fighting such 
things, cryonicists could still see their organizations vanish through 

Thank you for looking at the real world, on this.

BTW, what I am speaking of may be starting already.  You might have a look at:
