Well, it's more like being on a cliff edge with the forest fire
rapidly approaching.
There is no choice. Die or jump.  Might as well jump.

Except that cryonics costs money that may be better spent elsewhere
(e.g. on family, or life's necessities)

By the way, did you catch the speculation on warm biostasis as an
alternative to vitrification?

They are speculating that nanotech will enable this process.
And NASA would find it useful for long space journeys.
So research money might be available.

Of course, nanotech will enable a lot more than biostasis, so it may
be irrelevant.
