So last night, me and my Darling Husband were watching TV. In the show, a man walked into his nephew’s house. His nephew has been known to have a drug habit. Well, this man walked into his nephew’s house while him and his nephew’s girlfriend were pass out from being high. The girl started throwing up and she was going to die from it because she was on her back and she was passed out. The man did nothing. Didn’t save her. She did die.
Anyway, so I asked my husband if he thought that was wrong. If you follow this show (“Breaking Bad”, it kinda leads up to it like it he wanted his nephew to become clean and this might be his way to stop the drug addiction.) Yeah, it’s wrong but it’s a good show.
Me and the Darling Husband both agreed that it was wrong for him to do nothing.
Then this lead to the next question. My husband asked me well, if this person did something bad, like kill one of our family members or murder one of our children, then yes, he can see himself, allowing someone to die this way.
I was on the other side, yes, I would be really upset with the man or women who killed a family member or my kids. But should I be the person who should make the decision that this person deserves to die this way?
He and I were both upset with each other in the other ways thinking.
Yes, I agree that we don’t have children yet and so I may feel differently when I do have my own kids. But at this point in time, I don’t think that way. I don’t think I could let someone die even if they deserved it.
Also, this is an extreme ‘what if’ question and so I don’t want to know what this feels like to lose a child. (I know these stupid what if question really get us upset but it’s stupid because it’s just a what if.)
Anyway, my husband says that I’m in the minority that would think this way. And that he said a lot of people think the way he does. He asked me to ask this site.
I’m sorry, I could not let someone die even if they deserved it. It is not my job to punish people. Not that I’m not religious either but I think if someone deserves to die, then someone (god, a higher power, the law) will ultimately punish him.
What do you think? What does your SO, Boyfriend or Best Friend, Fiance or Darling Husband think? Is it the same or different?
I might be completely wrong and maybe I am the minority.
Just wondering what you think.
Also, this thread might get heated. Please try to respect each other and their opinions. If this gets out of hand, I will ask that it be closed.
