Tracie Harris, Noah Lugeons and Dave Foda joined us live for this incredible discussion on Moral Dilemmas.  

Imagine This

Runaway train is barreling out of control.  It's path: 5 small children playing on the tracks ahead.  You are standing near the switch and can divert the train saving the children.... But this new path would send the train into broken down car with an elderly man inside... What do you do?  

Moral Dilemmas!

You think you know... You're probably thinking that saving the children is the best plan... and you may be right, but first consider this moral dilemma.  

You come upon a bad wreck.  You find amongst the five lying helpless bodies that only one will survive.  The other 4 would only survive with the organs donated by the only one with a chance at surviving.  

Do you sacrifice the one to save the 4?
