Leon Kass on Ageless Bodies

From The New Atlantis, Leon Kass holds forth on biotechnology and the promise of eternal life. As regular readers by now know, Kass believes that everyone should suffer and die: as the chairman of the President's Council on Bioethics, he makes it his mission to block new medical research and any promising means of extending healthy life. He and many others work openly to ensure that we will not develop anti-aging medicine, that we will age, become ill and die. To be silent is to lose the promise of greatly extended, healthier, better lives to the actions of these foolish, short-sighted individuals. So speak up and be heard!
