Response to Wishes of the dead, versus rights of the living
The wishes of the dead were the wishes of the living when they were still alive. The will is a recorded testament to those desires.
I was thinking this morning, from a scientific perspective, which do you think will happen first?
a) A human body revived from cryonics;
b) Receiving radio transmissions from distant galaxies;
c) The discovery of Bigfoot.
d) Christ's return to Earth.
All these ideas have their followers and adamant believers. You're trying to justify your position with your belief system, which, like any of the others has yet to be proven. Until there is a revival result its like arguing whether God exists or not. Well, maybe, maybe not... I can't say he does, but there are certainly plenty of people that would argue with me.
None in my mind has a higher likelihood than another, but I respect people's right to believe in whatever they choose.
As far as legalities, it seems if someone signs up and pays their money, the body belongs to the cryonics facility as a medical donation. Yes, if that's something someone wants, they should get it. And vice versa.
