In your responses I would like you to identify which of the six stages of Kohlberg?s moral reasoning each of your classmate?s answers represents and explain how you came to that conclusion.
Heinz shouldn’t steal drugs because he’s not a thief and stealing is not the correct thing to do.?He’s been trying to do what he can without breaking the law, so you can’t blame him. I do not think he wants to sit in jail while his wife is sick.
I think your answer best fits Kohlberg stage 4. Stage 4 is all about law and order and the authority to fit the social norms. Not stealing is something that you are not suppose to do under any circumstances in our society and you get punished for it if you do. From an early age we are taught not to steal ?nd that stealing is ?rong and immoral

Heinz should steal the drug because healthcare should be accessible and should be considered a human right, no one deserves to die when they have the opportunity to get better. Heinz has the obligation to his wife and is her advocate so he should want to help her at all costs which is why he should take it. Heinz wants to save his wife because otherwise, he wouldn’t be looking for other ways to get the money or steal the drug. Even if he got caught for stealing, that would still mean he did the very best he could for her and she would die with dignity.?The pharmacist was extremely greedy when they should have just taken the money Heinz had, as that would cover what the drug cost instead of the inflated amount the pharmacist wanted. Even though it cost a lot to make, for a small dose and the pharmacist was charging ten times more than the amount, it would be worth it to steal it because the pharmacist is greedy when there is a life at stake. Although stealing is wrong, saving a life is worth it when there is a chance they could be saved 2 I remember doing this exercise in my Ethics & Business class a couple of years ago. This is, obviously, a very complex ethical problem. Is it?ver?K to do the wrong thing for the right reason? Is doing the wrong thing OK if it doesn?t?eally?urt anyone? If I am Heinz – I?now?hat it would be wrong to steal the drug from the pharmacist; but I could lose my spouse if I don?t get it. This pharmacist is acting very unethically and won?t?eally?e harmed if I take what my spouse needs. After all, he?s getting rich from people?s misery. If I had time, I could launch a negative PR campaign against him in the hopes that public opinion would make him change his mind; or, perhaps, make the authorities aware of what he is doing so they could compel him to do the right thing. But I don?t have time. My spouse is dying, and I will do anything I can to save her. In this case, I believe the ends justify the means. I would steal the drug. 3. This is actually an interesting discussion this week! After reading the heinz dilemma, it an extremely easy answer. Obviously he should break into the store and get the medication. It is simple. Why should someone die because you cannot afford treatment even after you have already went through every possible route? Someone’s life is more important than another $2,000. SOMeONES LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN $4,000. You cannot put a price on someones life and the pharmacist is. The pharmacist is charging four thousand dollars for a life saving medication. That seems immoral to me. ? work in a pharmacy, The amount of medication we give out for free because people cannot afford their copay is immense. We waive the copay for their insulin, blood pressure medicine, cholesterols medication, and sometimes pain medication. ?his is straight from the American Pharmacists Association,?I promise to devote myself to a lifetime of service to others through the profession of?harmacy. … I will hold myself and my colleagues to the highest principles of our profession’s moral
