Hello everyone, I'm new here on this group, but I've been interested
in life extension for about 3 years now.

I have unusual reasons for being interested in life extension. I am 22
(nearly 23), male, Australian  and have cerebral palsy and associated
disabilities. What started as an interest in living until my
disabilities could be treated and living a long healthy life
thereafter has developed into a desire to see mammalian aging, at
least, understood and acted upon in my lifetime.

Some points my Mum makes to oppose life extension:

"The world is overcrowded already." (Counter: Shortages are regional
not global and will not always be a problem."

"A body that old would get worn out. (Counter: Isn't life extension
about reversing and stopping ageing? Would nobody, except by choice,
get old?)

"It won't happen in our lifetime" (Counter: Don't have one! :-) )

Thanks everyone, please respond

Yours sincerely
