Organs-Funded Cryonics

Freeze heads or brains, and get organs pay for the costs of cryopreservation...
  [vote for,

A type of donor-ship contract for your wetware, based on a market for organs, pre-matching, and satisfying conditions of exchange, to get selling of organs pay for cryo-preservation of the heads or just brains.

In principle, this would be a service that works closely with cryonics service providers, like cryonics.org, alcor.org, etc., and hospitals that need organ transplants, merging the markets for neuro-cryonics, and organs for transplantation...

       This is actually a very good idea.

       Only a very small percentage of people die in a situation where their organs can be harvested for donation, unfortunately.

       Currently yes, but that easily can be changed.

       // why wait to freeze a corpse? //   

       Precisely. It needs to be done while the body is still functioning, to give the best chance of revival. Do a controlled shutdown, harvest organs, discard any faulty ones, freeze the core components for later revivification.   

       Unfortunately there are far to many "ethics committees", meddling politicians, and worthless, misguided religious adherents in many places to allow the work to be rapidly and efficiently progressed,

       Thankyou, but we have an extensive stock of surplus units; we have no need of them. We also have our own highly efficient stasis facilities, should they be required.

       You could make a movie about this. You could call it "Donor of the Dead".
