    A brilliant transplant surgeon has five patients, each in need of a different organ, each of whom will die without that organ. Unfortunately, there are no organs available to perform any of these five transplant operations. A healthy young traveler, just passing through the city the doctor works in, comes in for a routine checkup. In the course of doing the checkup, the doctor discovers that his organs are compatible with all five of his dying patients. Suppose further that if the young man were to disappear, no one would suspect the doctor. Do you support the morality of the doctor to kill that tourist and provide his healthy organs to those five dying persons and save their lives ?

    If I need the organ of course you kill the tourist. You must look at the big picture and do what's right for mankind. If not - then that would be murder.

    No. I would never do that to a guest visiting my country. I'd rather find a useless citizen that nobody would miss.

    It's not his fault they are sick. They should have taken better care of their organs.

    No.

    Your right to address your own medical condition ends where another person's rights begin.

    Not enough information to make an intelligent answer. What are the organs that are needed?

    Oh Hellz nah!!!

    Not the healthy kid's fault that some are sick.

    (Why are their lives worth more than his?)

    Plus a healthy kid may live longer and better than 5 sick people.

    (Wow, this took a dark turn!!!)
