Alcor could tell Fox News and Rush Limbaugh that stopping them from performing euthanasia on willing church members would violate the religious freedom of Alcor and of its congregation. And as a bonus there would be sweet tax breaks. Stupid people call Cryonics a religion anyway so they might as well make it official and get some advantage out of it. John K Clark
John, if euthanasia is the question, Rush Limbaugh is your ally rather than your adversary. He is conservative but has a libertarian streak a mile long.
As for Alcor declaring itself a religion, that too is a double edged sword. I don’t claim to have the answers, but that thought has occurred to me too.
