    Humans are important because when they die, you lose a life, years of building knowledge and experience that contributes massively to the lives around them.

    Cells in a test tube, even a in-vivo, functional human mind, are not morally relevant.

By that argument, there's nothing wrong with killing humans who aren't useful.
