I will conclude by siding with consequentialism for various reasons that I will try my best to explain. Consequentialism The moral theory of consequentialism centers its view about morality as the production of all the kinds of consequences that are naturally good. In this theory according to Kalajtzidis (2013), the reference of consequences of a deed means the overall outcome of an action, the action itself being inclusive. Shafer-Landau (2012) cites that the people who propose and support consequentialism concur with the effect that morality is wholly concerned with issues to do with the creation of as much freedom in the world as can be naturally and humanly possible (Kalajtzidis, 2013). Moreover, supporters of this ethical approach acknowledge that it is the sole moral activity of human beings to spread happiness and provide relief to the individuals who are going through hard times and suffering (Shafer-Landau, 2012).
Both point to fundamental features of their interpretations as well as some criticism of the other party. Like other ethical theories, both Smart and Fried have different views of ethics and definition of right and wrong. Utilitarianism has its basis in consequentialism, where actions are judged by the results or consequences
The APA devised ethical principles and standards in the field of psychology in order to provide a common order for practitioners. The principles are guides and the standards are rules, each supporting the other. The ethical norms within both the standards and the principles offer convergence of ideas at many points and divergent ideas at other points. The five principles within the Code of Conduct are used to justify actions and behaviors in order to protect, respect, and appreciate a person’s rights and values in all situations. When practitioners are faced with ethical dilemmas, they must refer to the common base provided by the APA and proceed with the recommendations there in.
As a development in Deontological Pluralism, the Belmont Report offers a series of moral duties to consider in medical research and procedure. The Belmont Report considers Respect for Persons, Beneficence, and Justice to be the morals to uphold in medical research. These three moral obligations determine the morality of decisions and allow a deliberation on actions. In the scenario of Troy and Kim, I will consider each moral obligation in terms of applicability and importance in order to determine the most moral action for the couple. As a member of the medical ethics committee deciding whether it is morally permissible to refuse to remove Kim’s birth control implant, I argue it is not morally permissible primarily on the grounds of Respect
After that, the researcher has to make the safety of the participants a priority. Their research can not harm any of the participants and if the case does potentially endanger a participant, the researcher must stop the study. Confidentiality is another ethical standard that the sociologist must keep in mind during and after the study is completed. For example, the researcher cannot disclose confidential information about any of the participants even if the police ask for it. The results of the study have to be available to other researchers and something crucial to keep in mind is that if someone is willing to fund the study it must be known to all.
The Model Code is organized by three distinctions: Canons, Ethical Considerations and Disciplinary rules. The Canons has a general statement of ethical ideal. The Ethical consideration is aspirational statements associated with the canons and signified as EC.
The NASW Code of Ethics is a tool that every social worker is supposed to use and abide by to help them perform their job to the best of their ability. It is composed of four sections the Preamble, the Purpose of the NASW Code of Ethics, Ethical Principles, and Ethical Standards. One particular part that impacted me was section six. It states that as social workers we should strive to make society a better place. This is important to me because I have a passion for helping people and trying to better their lives.
