Subject: Embryo cryonics-- CI officially rejects the idea.

This topic is a continuation of this thread:

In a startling new development, (startling to me, that
is)-- CI has officially indicated to me via an email
from Andy Zawacki, CI facility manager,  that they
will not accept embryos for storage and that there are
no plans to do so in the future. It appears that this
was decided at a recent board meeting of the CI
directors. There was no reasoning behind the decision
in the email I recieved about this-- only the
decision. I'll likely ask Alcor for their official
position soon. I'll explore the implications and
extrapolations of the CI position in a later posting
to Cryonet.

In the meantime, I consider it gratifying to see that
there are a few cryonicists who understand the wider
issue we're dealing with here-- and that embryo
cryonics might not be such a difficult thing to
consider in the overall situation we have here, as
cryonicists. [29][30][31].

[29] Kennita Watson doesn't think Alcor would 
frozen embryos but considers it a great idea to
[30] Anthony sees the 
parallels and is interested in
exploring them.
[31] Billy Seidel 
thinks embryo cryonics would be a
great sideline business for Fred and Linda.
