The Value of Lives?



Regarding 'The Killing of Children' by Anthony McIntyre,

Am I to take it that McIntyre places value on human life according to the number of months lived - the fewer, the more valuable that life is?

I have two children aged 23 and 26. Is it less wrong to kill them now than it would have been to have killed them when they were 18 months or 5 years? At my ripe old age of 54, am I about to fall off the scale of value? Or perhaps I already have?
