Mary is poor. She has not been able to find a job and has two children she needs to feed. Assume Mary is forced to let her children go hungry or steal some food from a local grocery store. Which should she do? Construct an argument that supports Mary's decision to steal the food or an argument that shows why Mary should not steal the food. Critique the arguments offered by your classmates.
All the communities I know have food banks where poor people can get free food. Food stamps issued by the federal government also help the poor buy food.
Her dilemma is not real because she has other options.
