Is life of infinite value?

Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 11 (3):239-246 (2001)
Abstract
: It is possible and necessary to compare stretches of human life with other goods, such as the good of conserving resources for others. A minute of human life is not of infinite value; all else being equal, a minute of life is less valuable than 10 years of the same life. Nevertheless, this ability to evaluate human life does not necessarily lead to total commodification of human life
