A Debate
Presented at the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education, March 2, 2002, Pittsburgh, PA

Two proponents argued that the advocacy for and application of effective and innovative practices and procedures will increase both mean life expectancy and maximum life span resulting in an augmented quality of human life for most of the world's population. Two opponents argued that the price of life extension is the universal erosion of the quality of all life on earth. This site contains their opening statements.
