It's hard for Alcor representatives to respond when cryonics-debunkers can selectively cut-and-paste remarks to portray the organization as encouraging assisted suicide when it's not.

There is private forum.
Also, reps can post under pseudonymn.

Is there a general consensus in this area? What are thoughts of fellow Alcor members?
Apparently the bracelet did not do as what it was intended atleast in one of the later deaths by ' cardiac arrest '
or something like that. Anyway it was within the last 2 years I think and was in California and was in the Alcor magazine I believe and as far as i remember it read something like ".... despite the bracelet identification... Alcor was NOT notified by the authorities till way too many hours(or days ?) later.." that is not the actual quote but it was something along that meaning and anyway he(or she?, i don't even remember for sure whether it was male or female) was not able to be cryopreserved but only straight freeze.

Although one thing I was curious about, is doing the process
in Oregon, where physician-assisted suicide is legal. The last
time I mentioned the idea, I got a lot of resistance from other
members and from the organization, since they want to avoid
any entanglement in something that could bring legal trouble
onto the organization. Lawsuits, etc. A family member claiming
that Alcor encouraged suicide, etc.
...
I could not agree more in that it should be in a state where physician assisted suicide is legal. Any employess of Alco who think otherwise and resist with this avoid legal trouble it just means that are lazy and greedy and don't care about your welfare but only their won pay and financial interests.

[quote="TDK"]I did a quick internet search about assisted suicide in Oregon.
Also available in Washington and Montana.....

You have to be terminal, with 6 months or less left to live. "

As far as that goes does anyone have any ideas about how to fake a terminal illness ? For i certainly don't want to have to endure this ' hell on earth' till i only got according to some doctor 6 months or less to live. So more than likely my death will have to be by suicide. So do you think these Alcor employees will standby for that. NO I don't think so ! Even though they certainly should they won't i will bet.

What exactly is your gripe?
What is supporting evidence for your gripe?
Or just moaning based on vague guesses?

Faking <6-mo. terminal illness = illegal.
If one really has terminal illness, one
might shop for "most liberal" "legal"
medical decision as to how long one has...?
