In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer.  There was one drug that the doctors thought might save her. It was a  form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently  discovered. the drug was expensive to make, but the druggist was  charging ten times what the drug cost him to make. He paid $400 for  the radium and charged $4,000 for a small dose of the drug. The sick  woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the  money and tried every legal means, but he could only get together  about $2,000, which is half of what it cost. He told the druggist that  his wife was dying, and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay  later. But the druggist said, "No, I discovered the drug and I'm going  to make money from if." So, having tried every legal means, Heinz  gets desperate and considers breaking into the man's store to steal  the drug for his wife.   1. Should Heinz steal the drug? Why or why not? I think that Heinz should steal the drug because it is the only chance that he has  of saving his wife. He had already tried to get the money to buy the drug but he  just couldn’t get enough. This is literally the only way that he could potentially  save his wife.  2. Is it actually right or wrong for him to steal the drug? Why is it right or

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
