Dr. Beckwith,
How would you respond to the question about killing one innocent person in order to save everyone else on the planet. Would it be consistent with natural law theory to say that the intent in killing the innocent person was to save the rest? Would that constitute a double effect argument? Also, to what extent can we "intend" anything when our will is being held hostage by the situation?

Thanks,
Steve
