Question Of The Week

So, let’s say that five years from now, scientists discover a way to indefinitely extend human life (while keeping you at the same age) by adjusting a small portion of our DNA related to reproduction. However lets say that this adjustment is irreversible and it causes infertility.

What would you choose… an indefinitely long natural life… or being able to have children of your own? Leave your answers to this thought experiment in comments.
