DGD is a reaction to a drug that cured most forms of cancer. Thinking about this society from behind a veil of ignorance, where you dont know whether you will have DGD if the cure is introduced, or cancer if it isnt, would you want to be in a society that had the cure or not?in other words, which society would have a fairer or more just distribution of benefits and harms? What institutional and social factors influence your choicefor example, prejudice and discrimination against DGD people, forced sterilization, or different approaches to the care and quarantine of symptomatic DGD sufferers?
Think about Lynns position. She didnt ask to have her rare pheromones, and, for that matter, she didnt ask to have DGD at all. If she didnt know whether she was in her position, or in Alans or Naomis, or in her parents, would she want to have the Dilg center there, run by DGD people like her? On a contractarian basis, it seems like she should conclude that, even though she wouldnt personally choose to run a DGD ward, she would want DGD wards to be run by people like her, and so its only fair for her to play the role she has ended up in within the world shed like to exist. Explain how this contractarian reasoning could help her reconcile herself to the future she sees for herself, where she accepts the responsibility of being in an undesirable position in a desirable social institution.
