One of the main debates surrounding cryonics is timing. Currently, it is legal only to freeze a body after the person has been declared dead by medics. Because freezing a person who is still alive will cause his or her imminent death, freezing live people is considered assisted suicide and is not permitted under United States law. However, it is imperative that the person be frozen as quickly as possible.
Because of our commitment to the speedy preservation of the deceased, choosing Cryonics America is the best shot for a successful cryogenic preservation. Out of state relocation after death can take several hours or even close to a day, which will add complications to the cryonics procedure. Longer delays place a greater burden on future technology to reverse injury and restore the brain to a healthy state, and make it less likely that the correct original state can be determined.
Once the deceased is pronounced brain dead, which would happen if the body is left unfrozen for a considerable amount of time, there is no further use in freezing the body, as that person would not be able to be revived again in the future.
We work nationwide to ensure that all across the country can benefit from the speedy cryopreservation that the Cryonics America facility offers.
