But fluoride’s adverse effects prevent some cities from imposing this practice. Water fluoridation should not be implemented within public water systems due to its detrimental effects on health, its catastrophic environmental impact, and it being an unethical health intervention since it goes against individual choice. Fluoride has gained its popularity in attempts to prevent tooth decay and dental caries, otherwise known as cavities.

Thus, they hold that personhood is largely irrelevant to the problem of abortion. In his Life's Dominion, Dworkin, writes it would be wise [...] to set aside the question of whether a fetus is a person [...] because it is too ambiguous to be helpful (1993, 23). However, although one can agree that the concept of person and personhood is ambiguous, this does not entail that we should not discuss and qualify what is a person. Being ambiguous is not an enough reason to leave a complicated concept such as personhood. Although we addressed, negatively, why

Is it possible to condense the problem to a rather simple maximization problem in example that the action is taken, which would kill the least people? Utilitarianisms would answer the question in the affirmative and change the track so only one person has to suffer. However, we have to question if the Utilitarianism is applicable to such ethical questions (Smart & Williams, 1973). This essay will outline several strength and weaknesses of the Utilitarianism devised by Jeremy Bentham. Firstly, the Utilitarianism will be outlined, secondly some strength and weaknesses are explained by employing examples, and thirdly several solution approaches for dilemmas Bentham’s Utilitarianism is facing will be sketched.
Throughout this essay I will be discussing how we should handle moral disagreements. Specifically I will focus on the ethical theory of Utilitarianism, it benefits but also its disadvantages which shows it is a theory which should not be used to handle moral disagreements. Utilitarianism is a type of relativist consequentialist ethic. Consequentialist ethical systems focus on the outcome of an action, rather than the agent or the action itself. Utilitarianism is a relativistic ethic because each time the outcomes of each ethical questions will be different.
Arguments among the abortion debate have brought this fact into dispute over many years, even before abortion was legalized in 1973 in the court case Roe vs Wade. As written in the Abortion Controversy, I believe that an early embryo may be called a potential human being. But remember that every woman has the potential to create twenty-five potential human beings in her lifetime. The idea that any woman who becomes pregnant as a result of non-procreative sexual intercourse must continue with her pregnancy does not take into consideration the fact that there is a tremendous discrepancy between the enormous potential of human fertility and the real-life ability of women and couples to provide
Upon the principle of utility, if it at ought at all to be admitted, it ought only to be admitted in as far as it promise to exclude some greater evil” (58).

The problem one can run into is that a doctor would never cure cancer by injecting one with ebola.If one was to relate crime as a disease then they can understand that crime is evil and therefore a disease and if punishment is evil and therefore a diese one can run into problems. Additionally punishment by itself cannot exist.
Introduction Abortion is generally regarded as a behavior that can artificially terminate a pregnancy. The research conducted by Wong et al (2003) mentions that nowadays the term abortion states induced abortion performed by trained doctors. According to the statistics collected by Solodnikov (2011), the legal regulations of abortion can be classified to three categories: ban, based on medical, exclusive and socioeconomic indications and completely legalized. It seems to be evident that people from different cultures and backgrounds hold diverse views on the issue based on different moral theories. Although the behavior has existed for thousands of years in the society, whether abortion is moral and permissible has still caused strong debates
Abortion is probably one of the biggest debates to date in the United State. The article was a pro-abortion article, and gave examples as to why it is a women’s right to choose.
