No...because innocent people should not be killed. Furthermore under what circumstances might this hypothetical turn into a reality?...♥Nassy
No its never right to take an innocent persons live. How many innocent people have to die like that because of everybody thinking that its the right thing to do by letting one innocent person die that is why the world is like it is nowadays
Though it might not be moral but i believe it is right to kill one innocent person to save the life of many because God exercise such act by giving out his only begotten son who is Jesus Chris for sacrifice and the remission of our sin for many of us that are innocent of the mistake done in the garden of eden so that we can be saved.
Yes, I believe in this statement because people should try to save as many people in any given situation as possible. It is also our moral duty as humans to make choices in life that will lead to less sacrifice which will save a lot more than it hurts. The belief of utilitarianism will lead maximized sanctity in society.
Yes and to negate Prabhudoc your just saying that as an excuse to not help the group over the individual cause it would make you make a decision. Abraham Lincoln once said that "action and inaction are both conscious choices and are equally praiseworthy or blameworthy if their outcomes are the same."
To say one life is to be saved while many others are condemed to death is the murder of those people. Killing is never good, but when in the context of "kill one, save a thousend" i believe saving a thousend people is better. The numbers of the saved may change, but to condem more than is necissary to death is moraly, ethically, and logically wrong!
Killing anyone is not permissible. There are institutions to try and adjudicate justice. Any one can use this facetious argument to justify killings.
