the question is a morbid one, and is used in psychological assesments.
 

you are a member of a minority that is being targeted for ethnic cleansing by government forces, you are hiding in a small  hidden crawl space in the basement with your family, a spouse and 4 children, the yougest is only a few weeks old.

military forces are going house to house, killing those they find, you can hear the screams of your nieghbors and shots ringing out.

the baby begins to cry as you hear the door upsairs being kicked in, and if you are found, your whole family will be executed.
you can either smother the baby, killing it, and possibly go undetected, or you allow it to cry and be found, and executed.

what do you do?


yes, this is an actual question used on a psychological assesment. 

Its kind of a trick question isnt it?

but yu know, there are minority grups facing ethnic cleansing in our world right now, for all we know, someone is having to make this choice, right now.

can you imagine?

and yes i know, why only the two options? cant i just stick a boob in babies mouth and hope he stays quiet? in the test, this is not an option.

I don't have it in me to kill my child, even knowing that it might save my other children. So I'd risk being heard.

You smother the baby as when you’re inevitably found the death it faces is more cruel and painful...
