Stop The Research: #13 Feeble Theory (fwd)

Rational or not, the following theory is subscribed to by millions of 
voters who have influence on congressional decision makers.

'Advances in immortality research may launch us into an extra 100 years 
of living feeble, invalid, comatose lives.  Therefore, why extend life?'

This theory of resistance is remarkedly similar to:
	 #7   150 Year Old Skin Theory
 and 	 #11  150 Year Old Won't Cut It In The Disco's

It is important, however, to discuss this system of logic.  Creative 
communication with this belief/attitude is imperative.  Dismissing 
several million voters is questionable. The challenge is present for 
proponents of life extension.
