I appreciate the nod. I should note that this site is on the back burner and
has been for a while - what is there right now is more in the way of a
flavor sampler than anything substantial. There are only so many hours in
the day, and running the Longevity Meme well has consistantly bumped
Bioethics Sucks down on the to do list. I'd rather be positive and proactive
than negative, I suppose, even when those negative things have to be said.

You'll find ways to make your voice count in the fight against those who are
trying to legislate healthy life extension out of existence at:


My biweekly newsletter also tends to be fairly punchy (scroll down to read a
couple, sign up if you like it):


And of course, there's the Immortality Institute community, where various
types of activism are discussed, organized and carried out. Join in!


What I really need to do is somehow squeeze in the time to polish up
Bioethics Sucks into a low-maintenance, infrequently updated statement site.
Recent internal politics and opposing position papers inside professional
bioethics show that bioethics in general might shape up into something less
obstructive if subject to further embarrassment over pro-death
positions...unfortunately, one really has to put in a consistant effort in
publicity over time to make a site worthwhile, and that's an additional
workload I'm not sure I can take on for what is a secondary battle for me.
