The ethics of extending life, Nov. 6

EthicsExtendingLife-400The research on extending human life is rapidly advancing. In 1900, the average life expectancy was 47 years in the United States. In 2000, it was 76.8 years. Life expectancy almost doubled in a century. Will it continue to increase? At what point will enough be enough considering the population has tripled in a generation? What are the ethical implications and consequences of further extending human life for both the individual and society? How does the quality of life play into the debate?
