Paul Wakfer tried to promote this idea when he created the Prometheus
Project whose goal was to develop and implement fully reversible suspension.
  Of course present suspension methods are NOT reversible and this will
really limit the ability to drum up public support.

I agree that many women who go in for abortions would not want the baby to
be cryosuspended. They want the potential human being (child) killed as a

interfered with.
