Profit from misery

This drug company has apparently hugely increased the cost of shots to help prevent premature labour in women who have had premature births before.  Instead of charging ten dollars they can charge fifteen hundred per shot because they have a monopoly.  Given that someone who has had a premature birth has gone through a truly horrendous experience even if the baby survived, let alone if the baby, as often happens, died, profiting from their despair and worry seems startlingly evil.  Really quite strikingly evil.
