What if it were your own life on the line?
"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven BodhesakoNanavira Thera's teachings - An existential approach to the Dhamma

If it were my own life on the line, I would still not be qualified to make the call. I'd need to know the value of the lives of others relative to mine, and that I cannot know.

The 'value of life' reminds me of "unworthy life" in the Nazi time...
