Does modern medical science keep people alive longer than nature would intend?
Yes, if we decided that we as humans and our efforts to modify our environment are less "natural" than say a beaver gnawing tress, making logs, and flooding the woods to make a beaver pond. No, if we decided as humans that our intellect and our adaptations to our environment are just as valid as the gifts of other creatures and organisms. If someone thinks we have "bent" the rules, I wonder if they re willing to stop, and die young?
Obviously. Without our medical machines, people would be dieing more. Because of our medicine technology people are living a few more years each year that passes. People used to live until their 60s over 200 years ago. Now people live to over 100. If they live the lifestyle possible.
Yes it does. And that is why modern medical science developed as well, moral grounds and guidelines for medical practitioners to know when the intervention is "too much" that the natural demise of an individual is not hampered. It is also good to know that in some other application of modern medical science, human beings are given an option, further education and application of science to achieve a healthy well-being. Again, in every scientific approach, considerations about whether if it is right or wrong should be discussed prior to the application.
Yes because they can charge the peoples insurance companies a lot for that extended care. However, if we move toward a more socialist medicine, we will see this trend go down.
