What are your answers to the baby dilemma and the trolley dilemmas posed in this Time poll? My answers were "couldn't" all down the line although I admit I came very close to pulling the switch on 3a:
An out of control trolley is heading down a track toward five unsuspecting people and will surely kill them all. You could throw a switch diverting it to a siding, but an equally unsuspecting man is standing there and the train will kill him instead. Could you throw the switch, killing one to save five?
Maybe if there were fifteen or fifty instead of five, it would have made a difference as far as voting goes, but in fact I have no idea what I'd really do in such a situation.
Here's a previous ST post on the trolley dilemmas.
