    Quote:
    Nowadays, I think largely due to Christian and then Enlightenment influence, we tend to think of a human life as priceless - but do we really mean that? If, in order to save one human life, we had to bankrupt every person, every business, and every nation on the planet, would that be the right choice? If not, then where do you draw the line? Would the value of a person's life be variable based on certain factors, and, if so, what would those factors be?


Given the high end of U.S. government healthcare payments in Medicaid, a human life is worth just shy of $40,000 per year.
