absolutely, I think we are playing with fire with living forever, not to mention what it would do to social security :-)and that in itself poses "class" issues a at least at first this will likely be expensive so the rich could extend their lives and live off pensions/social security and annuities making them have to pay less or later while the poor people who didn't extend their lives would still become frail at an earlier age with no money there for them.
This would require some extreme population control of one kind or another, and I don't think we as a population can handle an ethical issue of this magnitude.
With that being said I would want to live forever as long as I don't age too much.
