If time travel (into the past) technology were possible, and I were aware of such a thing, I think I would do anything and everything to prevent anyone from ever using the machinery.

That some schmuck could obliterate my 11 year old's existence (by steppin' on a butterfly, for example) is an unacceptable risk.

That's nice. I am so inept and uncoordinated, that I can't even catch a butterfly, while others trample all over them.

This is an ethical question (the OP) because we are NOT equal to each other in abilities and privileges.
