Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

As reported in the Salt Lake Tribune, Stem Cells "save lives". It says so. Right in tht title. So you know it must be true.

I know this has come in older entries but I still think we're supposed to die. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to keep my beautiful self going for the next 500 years but that's not going to happen. What kills me in this article is this line:

President Bush opposes the bill because, he says, it is wrong to destroy life to save life. That argument carries some weight, because it is true that embryos are killed when, a few days after fertilization, the stem cells in them are removed.

You're saying that's not very funny but if you keep reading there's no major "but" to combat that line. Ah, it's the same narcissists that want to live forever that want to read their precious thoughts in the op-ed column of a major newspaper.

The issue isn't about extending life it is about quality of life. The good that could come from further research is not aimed at making life last for ever. It is aimed at preventing/curing/helping debilitating disease.
