Remember “Law & Order”? They used to do fictionalized cases based on real life events. We are going to play that today because I am too lazy to find the actual facts of recent events…
Here’s the hypothetical:
Setting: A vaccine distribution center
Situation: 6 doses of the highly coveted COVID 19 vaccine are set to expire at midnight- in two hours.
Doctor in charge of lab chooses to vaccinate six people, including his wife because he doesn’t want the vaccine to expire unused.
Doctor is fired from his job and arrested for stealing the vaccine and faces charges.
What do you think?
Is the Doctor a villain or a hero?
When my family discussed this yesterday, my daughter just looked at me: “We can sit here all day and discuss what’s legal vs what’s ethical…”
My Husband’s contribution: “Well- how do we know he didn’t hold back vaccines specifically so he could vaccinate his wife?”
So, give me all your thoughts on this ripped from the headlines story:
