The new commandments according to Rethinking Life and Death.

—If you must take human life, take responsibility for the consequences of your decisions.

—All human life is not of equal worth; treat beings in accordance to the ethical situation at hand.

—Respect a person's desire to live or die.

A profound and provocative work, Rethinking Life and Death, in the tradition of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, examines the ethical dilemmas that confront us as we near the twenty-first century.
