Baron, Jonathan; Miller, Joan G.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v31 n6 p703-25 Nov 2000
Surveyed U.S. and Indian college students regarding the moral obligation to save someone's life by donating bone marrow. Indians were more likely to consider donation morally required. Both groups limited obligation to help out-group members. Indians regarded donating more highly when it arose from duty. Americans regarded donating more highly when it went beyond duty. (SM)
