Medicine advances enough to cure any disease, slow aging, and prolong life to hundreds of years. Should this be used on prisoners?
Would it be considered cruel and unusual punishment to extend someone's life, who is convicted to "life" in prison. And should it be at the cost of the rest of the country to pay for someone to spend 2 or 3 hundred years in prison. Or should we restrict their access to advanced medicine when it becomes available?
