The Different Stages of Moral Development
Consider the following case:
A woman was near death from cancer. There was one drug that could save her. It was a drug that a local scientist discovered. It cost the scientist $200 to make the drug, but charged $2000 for a small dose.The woman¶s husband went to everyone he knew to borrow themoney, but he only gathered $1000. He pleaded with the scientist to let him have it cheap, but the scientist refused. He wanted all the money. So the man got desperate and broke in to steal thedrug for his wife.
Should he have broken in and stolen the drug?
