What would the Torah say about this scenario? A CEO of a hospital has only 1 machine. This machine can save lives if you put someone in it. However, for some patients, this will not make them live, rather just delay their deaths. Let's say patient A walks in. He is in a very bad situation, he will die within 1 hour if not put in the machine for a 24 hours minimum. If he is put in the machine, he will survive for 1 month. Is it better to put him in the machine and let him live for a month? However, if you do this, you may have to face a situation where patient B, who will die in an hour but will live until his normal life expectancy if put in the machine, will show up. And you have must either take Patient A out of the machine, directly killing him, and put patient B in, saving him. Or you could leave patient A in, let him live for another month, and indirectly kill patient B. What should the CEO do?
P.S. I tried to make this question as clear as possible but it is hard to formulate so please feel free to comment to ask for clarification.
