    I would do anything to save my loved ones. I would do almost anything to save anyone else.

    I cannot immediately think of a situation where breaking the law would be in order to save someone, but I would consider it... or try to find another option.

    There is no black or white answer to this. I would like to think I'd do anything to protect a loved one, but if they did something bad and I had to lie and break the law for them, I may say no. If they genuinely needed my help, I may break the law if it meant saving them...

    Absolutely -- any law that prevents me from doing everything I can for the protection of my loved ones doesn't deserve to be followed anyway. My family and those dear to me come first in my life, and the government comes second. I agree, though, that I would not break it if they deserved what was coming to them under the law -- just as I wouldn't knowingly enable a drunk or a druggie, I'm not going to shelter someone who knowingly and willingly committed a crime worthy of punishment.

    Yes, if that is the only alternative and when it involves saving life of a loved one. I will do it and wait for the consequences.
