Wow, just found out about this, I find it stupid. Then again coming from a misanthropic apporach, I say we should try to shorten our lives. But really, I don't think we should do it. TO me it's just stupid, why use an animal to save another animal? We ALL die at one point, why prevent it? Because of the whole "We all have a right to life"? We have a righ to death, sure we don't all want to die, but again, inevitable, unavoidable it's going to happen. Another reason to why? "I don't want them too" or "I don't wanna die"; again same thing I said, unavoidable, inevitable.
If someone close to you dies, oh well tough luck. That's life. So my full on answer is no, it's stupid - Not going ot say wrong because well...morality doesn't even directly exist to me.
That's my two cents....I could give in a quarter...maybe.
