Moral Values

Here is a moral dilemma which has no right or wrong answer. Please read it, think about it, and then answer the question.

In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There was one drug that the doctors
thought might save her. It was a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered.
The drug was expensive to make, but the druggist was charging ten times what the drug cost him to make. He paid
$400 for the radium and charged $4,000 for a small does of the drug.

The sick woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money and tied every legal means, but he could
only get together about $2,000, which is half of what the druggist was charging.

He told the druggist that his wife was dying and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist
said, "No, I discovered the drug and I'm going to make money from it." So Heinz got desperate and began to think about breaking
into the druggist's store to steal the drug for his wife.

Should Heinz steal the drug?

Why do you say that? Please be detailed and specific.
