No one life is inherently more valuable than any other.–unknown

It’s not that a human life is necessarily more valuable than some other form of life, I’m in no position to make such a judgement. But I am human and therefore I’m biased in favor of human life. So, for me no human life is any more valuable than another.

That is not to say, that all “men” are created equal. Clearly some are more intelligent than others, some are more motivated than others. Both intelligence and motivation count for something; what they do not count for is value. The problem comes when we equate value (being) with ability to contribute (doing).
