Stuck with Virtue in Our Pro-Life Future

  • Peter Augustine Lawler
Symposium: Extending Life Indefinitely


Callahan is wrong to be pro-death, but he’s right to say that to live well—or for society to have a real future—we have to care about more than mere life. Futile attempts to stop the pursuit of extreme personal prolongevity are contrary to our rights-based way of life. It’s also contrary to human love and dignity to regard the old as a threat.
