I saw these two stories on the same day and they just struck me as so discordant:
The Hope: Making the World A Billion Times Better.
and then the Reality of today: Supreme Court Upholds Use of Lethal Injection
How ironic -- the search for extending life vs. the determination to end life. It occurs to me that the latter, especially with this Supreme Court decision, supports what has been termed 'a culture of death.' Yet, my impression is that the same folks who accuse progressives of supporting a 'culture of death’ would not support the search for longevity and life-extension.
