People from all walks of life face many ethical dilemmas. These dilemmas have consequences. Our worldview determines how we deal with these dilemmas, and guides us to the right decisions. In this essay, I will examine an ethical issues through my Christian worldview. I will also present other viewpoints, and compare them to mine.
Ethical dilemmas occur when there is a disagreement about a situation and all parties involved question how they should behave based on their individual ethical morals. (Newman & Pollnitz, 2005). The dilemma that I will be addressing in this essay involves Michael, recently employed male educator working in the nursery, and parents of a baby enrolled at the centre. The parents have raised concerns about male educators changing their child’s nappy as they have cultural practices that do not allow this practice to take place. This situation is classed as an ethical dilemma as there is a dispute between cultural beliefs and legal requirements within the workplace. There are four parties involved (parents, child, educator and director), all
In his writing, A Practical Companion to Ethics, Anthony Weston explains people are more judgmental and it causes a lot more problems than solutions. Anthony Weston feels Ethics requires us to be mindful thinkers, because it helps fight unjust prejudgment. I personally feel this could help fix court systems, federal, and state wide corruption. Most importantly being a mindful thinker could help businesses. There are so many reasons that could fall under Anthony’s theory. Getting to know the author and his work. I feel his mindful thinking is to reach out to others and interact with more people in an expressive way. Weston believes this will help our community progress in a positive manner towards others. I think he feels ethics requires us
I carry around my driver’s license everywhere I go. It is always in my back, right pocket inside my wallet. My driver’s license is very important to me, as it is for everyone else. It is there when I need to prove my identity

The ethical obligation of the defense attorney is set forth in what in most states is called the code of responsibilities for and attorney. The defense lawyer is a term more commonly applied to an attorney involved in defending a client in a criminal case with no issue on how guilty they are. Some call them warriors for equity, others use less approving terms. The point when a man is suspected of a wrongdoing, no one can remain alongside that person with the exception of his/her lawyer. Regularly the group and even the family will separate itself from a denounced, paying little mind to blame or guiltlessness. Employments are lost and lives demolished. At the littlest, the expense of protecting oneself will bankrupt most subjects. As the expense
The issue of ethical choices as assessed from the perspective of the modern population may appear easier than it might seem at the time when the decision was made. In the situation of the Founding Fathers and the choice that they made with respect to establishing the state in the form that was discussed during the closed seating, could be justified by the result they achieved. For utilitarian ethics and the ethics of virtue, their activities should have been justified and supported. Still, it may also be questioned if there was the need to complete the procedure covered.
Over these past eight weeks, it has become a pleasure to read what you have to say each week. I hope that you will take away a lot of useful information from this course as I have. I admire your ability to complete so much work at once. The most I had ever managed to work ahead was by one week! I have noticed from many of your forum posts that you and I share very similar beliefs on life, however, I enjoy playing devil’s advocate so I hope that you and I learned from each other in our discussions. What was your number one takeaway from the course? I agree with you that there were aspects of the ethical lens inventory for each person that they would not agree with. While I did agree with most of mine, I personally had my own disagreements
The American legal system is set in the foundation that a person on trial is innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. This has set the precedence for attorney client privileges, and the need for a lawyer to fight cases in the best interest of the client. The job of a lawyer is to prove that their client is not guilty, and the process of this sometimes creates situations that may not seem moral to the general public. These situations may even be completely moral in the eyes of attorneys. These situations are driven by the client attorney privilege, and this is need to create our free judicial system. Also, this is morally permissible when used to prove their client not guilty.
First, let’s define what a right is. A right is defined as something to which a person is entitled. Most American rights are determined by our constitution and the Bill of Rights which never explicitly states the right to vote, but certain Amendments deal specifically with this subject.

In many religions, the use of garments such as the Jewish yarmulke or the Islamic hijab are not merely worn out of choice, but out of strict ritual or religious obligation. Donning traditional dress is not just seen as religious duty, but ties closely with spiritual practice identity. Widespread use shows that it has become an integral part to the continuity of multiple religious practices. Provided that wearing religious garments is based on manifesting central religious beliefs, to what extent can a State hinder this expression of freedom? Should this conflict be approached as a matter of individual sovereignty or should a global norm be adopted? Technically speaking, the right to express religious freedom without the influence of
Duty Ethics, also known as Deontological Ethics, first defined by Immanuel Kant, is the principle wherein a special relationship between duty and morality of actions takes place.
