I've already stated that I'm pretty sure I'd have done what Shane did to Otis to survive and save Carl. It's an unpleasant admittance. I think lotjx said the same.

I posed the question to Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara:

@BackoftheHead ·
@glenmazzara Be honest: Would you have done to Otis what Shane did to survive? Hate to say, I think I would.

@BackoftheHead I honestly don't think I would have. #SorryCarl

Wow. Good for him, I guess. What about everyone else? Chime in, if you would.

Would you have done what Shane did to Otis in the same circumstance?

If I'm hoping that saving Carl would get me back in Lori's good graces, yes.

But this means that shooting Otis isn't about:
a) escaping zombies; or
b) saving Carl.

It's about:
c) -ing Lori naked again.

Then again, I might have avoided the problem had I planned how to get out of the medical trailer before I got in there.

Yeah, I'd shoot Otis to stay alive. I would feel bad for a while but I would get over it. I am pretty sure outside of my family, I would shoot just about anyone in that situation to stay alive.

Life is hilariously cruel.

I also believe that the situation was avoidable. When Shane and Otis both went into the medical trailer, I immediately knew that it was going to be a mistake because there was no one outside to arrange the escape. That's one of the things that I think makes Shane more of a "villain," it's not just that he'll do whatever he thinks he needs to do to survive or help Carl and Lorie, it's that he's reckless. Instead of making a plan ahead of time, Shane just charged in, and when push came to shove, of course he fed Otis to the zombies.

Took my youngest (10) and her best friend to see it tonight, and wow, what a nostalgia trip! The girls loved it and thought it was hilarious. It was very much like the old specials and movies, borrowing themes directly from several of them.
