Here's a hypothetical situation...you're told by some being that you have the choice to lose your life to save a million others. Would you? The million would include men,women and children..all people you do not know. You would die at the very moment if you chose to die...or would you save yourself and allow the million people to live?

My answer....I would choose to die . I cannot think my life is more important than a million other people.

I saw this question on another website and the majority of the people said they'd live and let the million people die because they love their own life too much.

I wouldn't voluntarily leave my children for strangers...call me selfish but I'd choose to live.

I honestly don't know what I would do.  I would hope i would save lives. To me it would not be suicide, it would still be murder. I'd be laying my life down for my fellow man, not taking my own life. In that case you are forced into it, it isn't suicide even if they make you do it by your own hand.

I would never take my own life. But if it were a me or them my life wouldn't be taken by my own hands I would save others .

That's a difficult one, only because I have a child with special needs. If I knew he would be okay without me, then yes.

I don't think I could die. Not because I am a coward, it would take great strength not to give my life to save innocent men, women, and children. I couldn't do it because I have children of my own and looking into their eyes would stop me. Knowing that I could leave my children motherless would give me more than pause. It would not make me proud, but I couldn't do it.

If I could die and save a million or live and have a million others die; what's to say those I love wouldn't be included in that million that would die if I chose to live?

We are overpopulated and I'm sure there are several rotten assholes in that million that wouldn't be worth killing a roach over.
