However, Bob choose to save his valuable car then indirectly killed the boy. “If you still think that it was very wrong of Bob not to throw the switch that would have diverted the train and saved the child’s life, then it is hard to see how you could deny that is also very wrong not to send money to one of the organization listed above”, Singer strongly state his thesis which is people who are affluent should donate their saving to children in needy. Otherwise, you are as wrong as Bob who killed the boy.
