If science enables us to be able to reverse the aging process should it be an option?

As above and also should someone be able to stay at a pre determined biological age say...20 for ever.If all disease could be cured in future it would essentially mean you live for ever unless(and unfortunately law of averages) you die of unnatural causes accident,murder..ect.
 
If moving to another planet becomes a possibility with advanced space travel then overcrowding would not be a problem.Also people who are 100s maybe 1000s of years old but remain at a pre-determined biological age will have great wisdom and expertise.

    Ask me again in another 100,000 years. We're barely out of the last ice age, ffs.

    Hell no... The world is vastly over populated enough as it is and to keep a steady supply of life bearing planets to support the mass resource drain...
    You'd rely on constant operations as your joints and organs fail, every body part has a shelf life.

    This borders on "would you like to live forever" and honestly I wouldn't. It's hard to appreciate the days you have when they are in infinite supply

    I shouldn't really comment as I'm already blessed with youthful good looks.

    I agree with the body failing joints and such
    BUT
    thats like saying i have the cure for cancer but if i give it out then the 1,000 people that die each year from cancer wont die so the population will go up... so to prevent the population from going up im going to keep my cancer cure to myself...
    (1,000 people a year is a random figure i pulled out the sky)

    He did already address the overcrowding issue in his post.
     
    Id only want it if I was rich at the time.

    They cure the greatest ever scourge known to Man, and you're questioning whether it should be legal?

    "
    The urban landscape accounts for 10.6% of England, 1.9% of Scotland, 3.6% of Northern Ireland and 4.1% of Wales.
    Put another way, that means almost 93% of the UK is not urban. But even that isn't the end of the story because urban is not the same as built on.
    In urban England, for example, the researchers found that just over half the land (54%) in our towns and cities is greenspace - parks, allotments, sports pitches and so on.
    Furthermore, domestic gardens account for another 18% of urban land use; rivers, canals, lakes and reservoirs an additional 6.6%.
    Their conclusion?
    In England, "78.6% of urban areas is designated as natural rather than built". Since urban only covers a tenth of the country, this means that the proportion of England's landscape which is built on is…
    … 2.27%."
     
    don't think that's really over populated , the government economies and ponzis schemes they have setup will tell you that it is , but in reality if we all live within our means energy wise and diconect from the plutocrat's then its not really overpopulated

    I think one of the major issues with this is that people will change vastly in terms of their outlook on life. You are basically suggesting a natural immortality.
     
    A positive is that those who want to improve our world will be able to continue their work for an infinite length of time.
    A negative is crime, 20 years in prison is nothing to the man who will live for 10,000 years.
     
    You will end up with a surplus of almost every skill.
    If you were told it would take you 40 years to become the greatest guitar player would you do it now, aged 20 considering it would take you to the age of 60...probably not.
    Would you do it at the age of 430, knowing it would only take you to 470, possibly.
     
    Education systems would need to change. Why be schooled for around 12 years if you are immortal, surely a 60 year education would make more sense? 
     
    Would you ever retire?

    No. If we choose the 'age' point as an option does it allow us to develop as per what most here as supposed to be about?? So unless I get to be able to pick the very day I'm at my strongest and biggest and remain there some time I don't see it. Equally, while there may well be a ton of things I could do with an extended life span I'm not sure I'd want to stay put.
     
    Plus it's likely, in my lifetime at least, that said option would only be to those with the cash. If the reasoning is, as per plastic surgery, all too often one of vanity over health then again no. I see far too many vacuous bints opting for boob jobs with very little apparent thought behind it.

    Life extension needn`t pose an over population problem. People will simply procreate less.  
    It should always be a decision made by the individual, some will wish to extend their lives others may choose not to.
    It should never be at the expense of quality of life IMO.
    Imagine the knowledge and skills that one could accumulate with life extension.   

    Ignorance: Reassuringly Expensive.
