14. While I did play some points for laughs and gross-out value, some serious points:
1) Are people who are willing to torture someone also willing to accept a burden upon themselves?
2) Are people who think torture is okay, because "anything goes" when it comes to saving lives, also willing to do something that they personally find repulsive (like sexual acts across the boundaries of their orientation)?

Key point: Would they say, "I would torture someone else to save lives, but I would not have sex with the "wrong" gender to save lives, nor would I accept jail or execution upon myself to save lives.
