For any of you who take parenting courses, psychology, or any course of this nature, you may have heard of Kholberg's theory of moral development. He created this theory by presenting to ppl of diff ages questions dealing with moral dilemmas and he listened to their responses and formed what we now call Kholberg's theory of moral development.. Anyways, amongst some of his questions was one that i found a little difficult to answer myself. I decided to listen to what you guys have to say so here it goes: a man and his wife have been married for a long time (25 yrs) and after many yrs the wife is diagnosed with an illness that no doctor could cure. The man searches for anyone that may have a cure but to his dismay he couldnt fine anyone. Then once day a doctor heard of his wife's condition and spoke to the husband saying that he had the cure for his wife. The man was in shock and when he asked how much the cure had cost, it was valued at 4 grand. The man could not afford this and he tried to compromise a deal with the doctor but the doc refused to help him. The man returns home saddened about everything, until he remember the doc say he was closing his clinic for a week b/c we was traveling. The man gets the idea of breaking into his clinic and stealing the cure-after all it’s the only solution for his wife’s illness.
So the question is, should he or should he not break into the doc’s clinic? And PLEASE justify your answers. Also, pretend that this man is not religious…b/c when I proposed that this man should just pray about it my teacher said you can’t assume this guy’s faithful. So, lets assume he’s an atheist…what should he do? Is it right to something evil even though you have good intentions?
