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 $200 for the radium and charged $2,000 for a small dose of the drug.  The sick woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he know to borrow the money, but he could only get together $1,000 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 am going to make money from it."
The classic ending to this vignette is:  So Heinz got desperate and broke into the man's store to steal the drug for his wife.  
What level of moral development is Heinz demonstrating, perhaps?
This would be preconventional morality, conventional or postconventional??  
Re-write the ending to the vignette such that it now places Heinz at the other two levels of moral development:
