Probably becuase they were using crappy non-federation medical tech, just switch over to federation medical technology. It kept McCoy alive so it should keep them alive long enough to figure out how to make their own magic youth radiation.
Besides that... the Son'a were aging. Big deal.

150 year old McCoy, would he force the Ba'ku of the planet just because he doesn't want to get old like everybody else?

I find this argument funny. You can't have it both ways-if aging is "no big deal," then removing the Baku so they resume the normal aging process is no big deal either. If it IS a big deal, then what's happening to the Son'a is a big deal as well.
Federation citizens are accustomed to way of life in which death is an inevitability.

The Ba'ku have adapted their society over a few centuries to be accustomed to and comfortable with immortality.

You would destroy one culture's way of life in order to change another.
You wish you could move like this.
I has a blag.
