Alright, so I have a simple question for everyone, yet the answer will most likely not be simple at all. So, if it came down to it, would you take the life of an innocent person to save the life of a loved one? why?

A very difficult ques indeed. I think answers vary depending on the situation though if yes comes than it would be inhuman but if its inhuman to your family or loved one than i think the ans will come yes. I cant think this situation or i cant imagine myself or what i vl do if i would have to face this situation but definatelly the answer should be NO ethically.

I agree. This is a situation nobody should ever have to face.

life - Simple question...life
I will never take life of an innocent person to save the life of a loved one, instead I can give up my life to save the life of a loved one of another. Now, why...frankly I don't know the exact answer, this is the first think I got in mind when I've read ur simple question. I got answer simply, but its reason is really difficult. I can't live with the sin feeling I've asked for somebody's life. Why should I claim for innocents's life for my happiness. Thanks.

I cannot imagine any situation where that would become necessary. If it did, I still think I could not bring myself to commit cold-blooded murder, but, under stress, most of us will do things we don't think we could ever do.
