PHIL 202 Upper Iowa University Utilitarian Approach Discussion

Question Description

Write a 300-500 word essay in which you answer the following question:

A doctor in a hospital has five patients in her care, each of whom is deathly ill, and each of whom needs a single organ to survive. The doctor knows of a sixth patient who is a match for all of her other patients, and she suddenly has the idea that she could chloroform him and cut him up for parts, saving the lives of the five patients. What would the utilitarian approach tell her to do, and why? Be sure that you consider everyone who would be affected by the doctor’s actions. Explain and defend your answers.
