Ethical decision making

You are a senior getting close to graduation and are taking too many classes during your last semester. You find yourself getting behind in class and not doing well on tests. One of the classes requires a 30-page term paper, and you simply do not have the time to complete the paper by the due date.
While you are on the Internet, you see that term papers can be purchased on any topic. You ordinarily would do your own work, but the time pressure of this last semester is such that you see no other way. What would stop you from purchasing the paper and turning it in as your own? Write your response with examples of why making the purchase is unethical.
