Is it okay to sacrifice one person for the benefit of many? Please answer quickly?

Yeah, I got to go somewhere soon so let's not waste any time.I have to write an essay about whether I agree with the question above. I really don't know. There are certain situations where I believe it is okay and not okay. I was going to "pick the fence" on this one but the teacher said I can't do that. I have to have a definite answer. I decided to let society decide for me. Tell me if you agree with the question above. I will tally up the votes and I will write the winning answer.(Yes or no question. I don't know whether or not I agree entirely or not. Again, there are certain situations where I believe it is okay and not okay. I just don't know which one I should go with).

    In practical terms, the answer is clearly yes. Morally, it gets a bit hazy, since you are killing someone, but if it means that many will prosper, I’d think it’s permissible. Of course, the guy getting sacrificed will disagree on both counts.
