Secondhand Smoke II is the temporary home of Secondhand Smoke, begun due to intractible technical difficulties at the original site. I apologize for the inconvenience. This WEB log considers issues involving assisted suicide/euthanasia, bioethics, biotechnology, and the dangers of animal rights/liberation. My views reflect my understanding that the philosophy of human exceptionalism is the bedrock of universal human rights. Or, to put it another way: human life matters.
