There's also that similar question:
If one person had the antidote to a deadly disease that many others possesed, would you kill that person in order to save the others? ( the person is unwilling to give up his/her life )
On one side, killing an innocent person in any culture, any society is wrong.
On the other, people are dying because this person is living.
What if this person with the antidote is your own family, friend? Would you still do it?
Back to the other question. Saving your love would be incredibly selfish. But saving the world would not only mean giving up your true love, but also meaning she/he would die an incredibly painful death. Would you bear knowing that you destroyed the world? Would you bear knowing you put the person you love through a painful death?
Anyways, I would hate to be in that position.
