The same dewar that holds the corpsicles at Alcor seems like
the ideal place to store the hapless foetuses Damien refers to.
Perhaps having innocent embryos stored alongside the cryonauts
would make Alcor a less likely target of deranged luddites and
"two legs=bad" greens. Both groups may want to see the cryonauts
destroyed, but are unwilling to go up against the awesome power
of superstition. spike
