* In 1969, psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg studied moral reasoning by presenting his subjects with a series of stories dealing with moral dilemmas and asking them if the people in the stories should (or shouldn't) have taken the actions they did and why. The most famous of these stories concerns a man whose wife desperately needs a drug which a local pharmacist has developed. However, the pharmacist is trying to make money off the drug and is charging far more for it than it costs to make. In the end, the man, having failed to obtain the drug through legitimate means, breaks into the pharmacy and steals the drug.

* Parodied in a joke about the [[CanadaEh Canadian]] version of ''BreakingBad'':
-->''Opening Scene: Walter White sits in his doctor's office. The Doctor looks at him seriously.''
-->'''Walter:''' How bad is it?
-->'''Doctor:''' I'm afraid it's cancer. I'll schedule you in to begin treatment next week. Just make sure the hospital has your Medicare number.

He agrees to commit a dangerous robbery in order to pay for his ticket to the titular space station, where magical machines that can heal anything are freely available.

* In ''Manga/MuhyoAndRoji'', Enchu's desire to support his sick and poor mother fuels his efforts to become an Executor. This is possibly deconstructed when the committee deciding whether he or Muhyo would be promoted was concerned about his preoccupation with his sick mother. Their concerns are not entirely unfounded, as her death, combined with his being passed over, triggers his FaceHeelTurn [[spoiler:as Teeki had planned when he killed her]].

* The French film ''Yamakasi'' has this for a premise. A small boy gets hurt trying to imitate the famous [[LeParkour Parkour]] group and needs very expensive surgery which his family is too poor to afford. So the Yamakasi decide to apologize to the family by robbing some very rich people and paying for the surgery, [[ExtremeSportExcusePlot doing awesome stunts in the process]]. A most blatant example of TheyJustDidntCare since in the French healthcare system you need not go to such extreme lengths to get a treatment.
