It is just the ethical end of the road. Killing is wrong so if there is a choice between killing somebody or be killed the only logical and ethical choice is to let yourself be killed. Yeah it is harsh but that IS the only logical conclusion you can have if you believe killing is wrong and that is why you take measures to prevent such a situation from ever happening.

Wait what??? You would let your child be killed instead of you protecting it? You would allow yourself to be killed and your child be raised without a parent??

We talked about these kind of situations in Philosophy class in high school and yeah if you look at it from a purely reasonable and logical viewpoint it IS better to let yourself be killed than to kill another person. Being murdered is better than being a murderer. A kid growing up with a murdered father is still better than a kid growing up with a father that is a murderer.

In the case of the child I don't know, we didn't talk about that situation in that class. I think in that case it would be justified so it shouldn't be punished too harsh.

What would be the difference if your child was witnessing your murder. You would allow that?

Look these kind of things are difficult subjects but if given this choice it would be better that he witnessed my murder instead of witnessing me murdering.
