Yes, they intentionally kill the guy to save the other three. If they dont do it, the other three will die. There is a kid, cancer researcher and red cross worker.
What is so special about these 3 people, over someone who just happens to not have a home?
You make a lot of assumptions about someone who doesn't have a home.
You also make many about someone who, in this case, spends their day that in the big picture, has minimal impact.
What if after you kill the homeless person you find out he actually worked a full time job helping others learn skills they need, and chose to not have a home because it wasn't personally important to him. In addition, he had money in the bank, a lot of money, and left it all to cancer research.
Then, you give the organs to 2 adults who are (and you never know this) having incest with all their children, beating their spouses, embezzling money and belong to the KKK?
The child grows up and becomes a sexual predator and sadist, who takes advantage of many people, is addicted to drugs and runs his car into a crowd of people while under the influence?
What exactly do you have against this homeless person?
How is he not the equal of any of the others?
You're saving 3 lives?
Then why not just go into the next bay in the ER and kill whoever is in there?
Because they're a father? So? Do you know if his children might not be better off without him?
Are the 2 "worthy" adults less than a week away from retirement, and during these last days they're just saying goodbye and filling out forms?
Is the homeless person 19, and just gotten a job at a starbucks, and within a short time will be able to rent a place with roommates, get back to school etc?
Why would one assume one persons life is less worthy than anothers on such superficial qualities as they don't have a bed, as oppossed to spending most of your day spinning centrifuges or packaging up boxes of mylar blankets?
What if the kid had the broken leg and the homeless guy was in the group that needed organs.
Why not tranq and kill the kid and use his young and healthy organs to save the 3 adults?
That makes sense to me. Kids are a dime a dozen. People drop them like litters of puppies. Let the other 3 continue their lives.
