Re: Trolley Problem

If the patients are terminal, why would you waste fresh, tasty organs on them anyway? I just spoke with my lawyer friend - apparently committing murder, mutilating a body, illegally harvesting organs, and theft is considered worse than operating a lever. In the eyes of the law, at least. Lawyers , huh
