Her body, her choice and I am so glad that she won! :cool:  It will also help raise awareness of cryonics and hopefully other life extension things.

Part 3 – 10 November 2016

67. On 8 November, I received a detailed note from the solicitors for the hospital trust in which the events surrounding JS’s death are described from the point of view of the hospital. It records that JS died peacefully in the knowledge that her body would be preserved in the way she wished.
68. However, the note makes unhappy reading in other ways. The Trust expresses very real misgivings about what occurred on the day of JS’s death. In brief and understated summary: (1) On JS’s last day, her mother is said to have been preoccupied with the post‐ mortem arrangements at the expense of being fully available to JS. (2) The voluntary organisation is said to have been under‐equipped and disorganised, resulting in pressure being placed on the hospital to allow procedures that had not been agreed. Although the preparation of JS’s body for cryogenic preservation was completed, the way in which the process was handled caused real concern to the medical and mortuary staff.
69. These proceedings have come to an end and I make no findings about the above matters, on which I have in any event not heard other views. I nonetheless approve the intention of the Trust to send a copy of the note and its accompanying documents to the Human Tissue Authority. It may be thought that the events in this case suggest the need for proper regulation of cryonic preservation in this country if it is to happen in future.

So in English, what it's saying is that the procedure stressed hospital staff who were obviously pretending to be inconvenienced by doing something extraordinary b/c they felt that cryonics for just one person was unfair given that so many were dying and since everyone can't be frozen, we should all just die. Therefore, given the resistance to cryonics of jealous underinformed people we need laws to force them to do the right thing?
