The Laws of Life
The “reanimation” of life can refer to much more than zombie media would have us automatically think. Killian C Quigley describes a 1984 court case where the legality of the marketplace for byproducts of life, in order to “reanimate life” came into question. But he also raises the question, “What is life?” Is it a collection of tissues and snippets, reshaped into an imitation of a being? Or is it something much less quantifiable? And what sorts of laws, if any, will define the boundaries for endeavours in this field?
