What Is Wrong With Kamm's and Scanlon's Arguments Against Taurek

Abstract
I distinguish several arguments Kamm and Scanlon make against Taurek's claim that it is permissible to save smaller groups of people rather than larger. I then argue that none succeeds. This is a companion to my "Saving the Few."
