So, in my Developmental Psychology class, we were studying morality and when it develops. It develops in three stages total; but to test the final form that is usually gained in the late teens/young adult hood, a psychologist created "The Heinzman Debate".
In it, a woman is diagnosed with a terminal illness and will die soon. A pharmacist creates a life saving drug, yet it's outrageously expensive and hardly anyone can buy it. The husband of the woman, Heinz, pleads with the pharmacist multiple times to give him the drug, and even resorts to charity to buy it. Of course, this drug is so expensive, he ends up stealing it from the pharmacist to save his wife. His wife lives, and they live happily ever after.
Was Heinz right for stealing the drug? Was the Pharmacist right for keeping the drug to himself? What do you think? I want to hear your opinions.
