I'm sure that there are many list members who can identify with your
sentiments , and who, too, have struggled to come to terms with the
seemingly senseless perpetuation of a "life" that is, for all intents and
purposes, over. Perhaps there is a " light at the end of the tunnel"
however. In time, once Biostasis becomes more widely developed and
available/recognised etc, the Law could be changed so as to enable a
person diagnosed with a fatal illness, but who may, say, have 6 months
to live, to voluntarily undergo biostasis prior to entering into the really
traumatic final stages of the illness, thus saving all involved much agony,
and replacing it with hope instead.
