If a disaster happened, would you steal life saving medicine for your child?
If you couldn't buy the medicine you needed for your child because the supply was running short, would you steal it to save your child? Keep in mind that by stealing this medicine, other people would be going without what THEY need to survive.
I don't have children, but I can guess that if there were ever a shortage of supplies like that, people would do whatever the deemed appropriate to ensure the survival of their children.
You pose a very good question. Until this one I could never think of myself stealing. Now I'm not so sure.
I would like to think that I have enough faith in God that He would heal my child in those circumstances or provide an abundance of medicine from somewhere.
However, my spouse says unequivocably that he would not steal. He would put his trust in God and whatever would be would be.
Two answers in one!
Of course, and the beans to keep her from starvation.
My loyalty is to my child.
Stealing for need is forgiveable and understandable, for desire and want is not.
Did you expect less than the truth?
Stealing from chemists, doctors, suppliers, government, business - even if that subsequently deprived others - would be not a problem morally. Number one in the world is your child.
Stealing directly from another child - that would be a whole different issue - and one that I hope never comes up.
Hell yea! Who the heck wouldnt....? Survival of the fittest.
I would do almost anything to protect and maintain the health of my family. Almost, but not including harming or stealing from another family.
However, if I saw that a government entity, group, or individual was hording or not fairly allocating resources, then I may be open to other means of getting the medicine to my child.
Well, I wouldn't feel good about it, but - yes - I'd steal it for my child. There's a good chance, depending on the situation, that I might not be capable of stealing it from someone else's child (as long as that "someone else's child" wasn't 30 years old). Difficult question when considering all the possible scenarios, but I'd definitely not be above stealing something like that for my child (and my three kids are all grown up - and I'd still steal it for them under the "right" set of circumstances).
Yes. Anything to keep my child alive. If I can trade something then I'll do it, but if not I'm willing to go all out. I might burn in hell, but I'll worry about it later.
I would steal no only for my child, but for everyone I ever had the chance to save. I do what i can do, the other do what they can...
