Leon Kass is still trying to convince us we should all do nothing to try and prevent age-related suffering and death, this time in the Washington Post. Here, he elists the comprehensively refuted yet still widespread Tithonus Error - the belief that a longer life would mean a greater time spent in increasing depths of decrepitude. All envisaged healthy life extension technologies will accomplish nothing of the sort, of course - they will lead to more healthy, active years. Kass is, as usual, saying whatever he thinks will bring the audience around to his way of thinking, without regard for truth, accuracy or science. His own choice is his own choice, but he and others like him cannot be allowed to dictate access to longevity research and medicine for the rest of us.
