- You are a member of the hospital board and must decide which four out of the nine people will, through the use of a kidney dialysis machine, be able to live. The hospital can only obtain four machines—there are none available anywhere else—so five people must die.
- When you are finished first, explain using the lecture material on rationalization how you made your decision. In other words, what was your overall rationale for saving some of the patients by giving the machines while preventing others from living by denying them the machines? Second, provide an explanation for each person that you decided would receive a kidney dialysis machine and provide an explanation for each person that you decided would not receive a machine.
