"What is an individual?"


"Murder kills only the individual--and, after all, what is an individual?"...he indicated the rows of microscopes, the test-tubes…"We can make a new one with the greatest ease…"

What is an obvious implication of the above quote? Choose all that apply.


It is all right to commit murder because people's lives are not important.


Each individual is considered to be expendable; therefore, death is not a concern.


Lives should be valued although they can be replaced with ease.


Creating lives is a task that should not be taken lightly; the process is very time-consuming and meticulous.


Eliminating lives is actually beneficial because it allows the opportunity to bring in fresh and new individuals who have not been contaminated by outside beliefs.
