Question description

The Lifeboat: You are the captain, and your ship struck an iceberg and sank. There are thirty survivors, but they are crowded into a lifeboat designed to hold just seven. With the weather stormy and getting worse, it is obvious that many of the passengers will have to be thrown out of the lifeboat, or it will sink and everyone will drown. Will you have people thrown over the side? If so, on what basis will you decide who will go? Age? Health? Strength? Gender? Size?

After thinking carefully about the situation, do the following:

    • Describe the decision that you would make in this situation and explain why.
    • Identify the moral value(s) or principle(s) on which you based your decision.
    • Based on this analysis, describe your general conclusions about your own moral compass.
Due by Sunday, it is a discussion post so it has to be at least 250 words.
