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 10 times what the drug cost him to make. He paid $200 for the radium and charged $2000for a small dose of the drug.
The sick women’s husband, Heniz, went to everyone he known to borrow money, but he could only get together about $1000, which is half of what it cost. He told 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, Heniz got desperate and broke into man’s store to steal the drug for his wife.
Should the husband have done that?
