Not disposed: Life is sacred - CQ Today

Modern science is a wonderful thing. Scientific discoveries save lives, make it easier for us to clean our house and let us travel all around the world effortlessly. But science also puts pressure on what is the difference between right and wrong.

Most laws, going right back to when Hammurabi was a boy, outlaw certain conduct, like killing or assaulting others. This is known as the natural law approach to ethics, based on the idea that we can discover what is "good" by investigating the true essence of human nature. The good of protecting human life is almost always part of any natural law.
