Drowning Child in a Pondfleeting
By Peter Singer.
Say you have very expensive shoes. If you come by a pond and see a child drowning and you don’t have time to remove your shoes before saving per. Will you save the child and ruin your shoes or let the child die?
If you deem the life of the child more important than the shoes, then why don’t you avoid buying those expensive shoes in the first place and send money to save one life?
