Ethical Dilemma

Question

Write a 1,000-1,500 word essay in which you analyze ethical thinking and use values-based decision making to address a case study from the perspective of the Christian worldview as compared to your own worldview assumptions. Choose one case study from the five options listed on the “Ethical Dilemmas” document.

After an appropriate introductory paragraph with a thesis statement in which you name the scenario you are choosing, address each of the following six sections with at least one paragraph each. Use the underlined titles for each of your headings.

1.Ethical Dilemma: Briefly describe the ethical dilemma in your own words, including (a) what in the scenario makes it difficult to make an ethical decision and (b) at least two options for resolving the scenario, providing a brief overview of what sort of ethical decisions each option might make.

2.Core Beliefs: What beliefs about God and humanity from the Christian worldview are relevant to the scenario? How might these core worldview commitments of Christians influence one's decision making with regard to this scenario?

3.Resolution: Describe the Christian worldview's proposal for resolving the ethical dilemma. How should the person in the scenario act according to the Christian worldview? What is the best course of action for a Christian? (Note: The resolution should be consistent with Christian worldview commitments.)

4.Evaluation: What might be the unintended consequences and perceived benefits of the resolution proposed by the Christian worldview?

5.Comparison: How does the Christian worldview's resolution compare to another option?

6.Conclusion: Synthesize the main points, pulling the ideas of the paper together.

Ethical Dilemma

            A woman in Europe was almost dying of a particular kind of cancer. The doctor indicated only one drug could save her that was a form of radium discovered and stocked by a druggist in the same town. Although the drug was expensive to make, the druggist charged ten times more than the cost of making the drug. He charged 4000 for a small dose though he only paid 400 for it. Heinz, the sick woman’s husband tried all he could to collect the money. He borrowed from people he knew and tried every legal means. However, he only raised 200 which was half the total sum.

He mentioned to the druggist that the wife was dying and requested him to sell it at a lower price or let him pay later. The druggist refused saying that he had discovered the drug and, therefore, was going to make money from it. Having tried explored all avenues, Heinz got desperate and considered breaking into the man’s store to steal the drug-for his wife.

Difficulty in Making an Ethical Decision

In this scenario, it is hard to make a moral decision. Heinz is making a decision on what’s best for him but not for his wife. He has two different courses of action to choose from and no matter what course of action he takes, some ethical principle is compromised. There is no perfect solution.

Resolving the Ethical Dilemma

There are two options for fixing the scenario. Heinz breaks into the druggists store and steals the drug for his wife thus breaking the civil law and Gods commandment against theft. In this case he goes against his values of truth and honesty. Not taking the drug and letting his wife die is the other option. If he does this, then he acts not in a prudent manner and is devoid of love.
