Is life of infinite value?

Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 11 (3):239-246 (2001)
: It is possible and necessary to compare stretches of human life with other goods, such as the good of conserving resources for others.

Nevertheless, this ability to evaluate human life does not necessarily lead to total commodification of human life
