Should We Allow Abortion

A baby is a human being, even if he is in his mom’s stomach. This action is not a new one, but the real debates about it have just begun because of the taboos that Islam impose. Abortion means to kill a baby when he or she is just a fetus. It has a lot of reasons, it can be wanted or sometimes a woman aborts for health reasons. However, a baby is a gift from God, and a mom who kills her baby knows that and has strong reasons to kill her own creation. Abortion may be prohibited by Islam, but nowadays, this act is considerate as a subject of conflicts between pros and cons. Therefore, I completely agree with those who fight to allowed abortion.
Opponents of abortion say that this act is a crime and to kill a baby for any reason is against the law in Morocco and the punishment is prison and sometimes death penalty. They do not care on the reasons; So what can they say if I tell them that health is a reason that cannot be discussed? I found some cases that show that if a mother gives birth to a baby, she will die. Don’t they see that it is a danger for the mother? What will happen to this baby without his mother? In this case, there are some extreme cases in which the mother has AIDS or a handicap that will affect the baby. Are these risks to take just to have a baby? To care about the feelings of the baby, when he will growth is very important. It reminds me a French dwarf couple, the woman got pregnant, all her entourage told her to abort but she was against this idea. She gave birth to a normal baby. This baby became a boy who suffers from his parents’ image; he tried to kill himself more than once, and every time he told his parents this hurtful sentence:” you…...

Do We Have Free Will?

...Do We Have Free Will? It is Friday night and your friends have just invited you to what is supposed to be the best party of the year, but it is your little brother’s birthday. Right before the party, you sit down to weigh your options and decided to stay home to celebrate your little brother’s birthday. Did you just make a free choice, or was your decision just the result of the natural laws in the universe coming together forcing you to stay home? In the words of Arthur Schopenhauer, ""Man can do what he wills but he cannot will what he wills" . According to this, though you may believe that you have the complete freedom to choose where you wanted to go, your ultimate choice was caused by the events that occurred before this one. Although the choice of going to the party or staying home may seem to have given the illusion of free will, there was ultimately a physical law that could most likely explain why this decision was made. First off, there are three main viewpoints on the idea of free will: compatibilism, determinism, and indeterminism. Compatibilists state that it is possible for both free will and determinism to exist at the same time. Given an instance, a compatibilist will say that even though you are only really presented with one option in all situations, if this option is in accordance with the your true desires, then you have free will. Another idea some compatibilists believe is that there is always a natural law that can explain an outcome, but......

Why We Do What We Do

...RUNNING HEAD: Why We Do Why We Do What We Do “To be or not to be that is the question” (Shakespeare, 1945) most notably said in Shakespearian text. Today we ask the same question within our actions. Are we able to be ourselves in the decisions we make or are we not? In business we exam many problems and situations and act appropriately based the business needs and practices. In many cases the decisions we make our not within our means or not based on whom we are. Many business decisions are made with utilitarian approach. The decision is based not on the character of the person but the decision itself. Decisions like these can often make or break a company. “Character is a major component of leadership. This goes hand and hand with integrity and commitment will come naturally.”(Klann, 2007) Developing Character can lead to major personal achievements within an organization. Virtue Theory shifts the focus of decision making based on rules and regulations to morals and ethics based on one’s self being. This can be seen in a positive light depending on the business someone conducts. In many situations it can lead to difficult decision making when it comes to organizations that have to abide by certain policies and procedures that may not agree with an individual’s morals and ethics. “Is it wrong to steal a loaf of bread to feed your family…?” (Groening, 1989) Deontology brings us the dilemma of what the moral high ground is and why. Individual morality differs for each......

Why We Do Not Do Drugs?

...The first cause is simple curiosity. Many teens have heard about drugs, and they are curious to experience them for themselves. They have heard that drugs can be fun, or make a person feel and act different. Maybe they have seen their friends or family members behave differently while on drugs, and they want to see how it really feels. We see drugs on TV and movies every day. Many young people encounter them at school, at home or in their neighborhood. It is not unusual to be curious about something you see and hear about so often, so many people first try drugs because they are curious about them. Another reason young people take drugs is to escape their reality. Maybe their home life is not very happy. Maybe they have a boring job, are not doing well in school, or are just not happy with their life for whatever reason. For many people, drugs are a way to escape that unhappy reality. They can feel a little braver, stronger, a little smarter, more beautiful or more important. Of course this doesn't last long, but that doesn't matter. For the brief time that the drugs are taking affect, the user can forget about the problems, responsibilities and limitations of everyday life and escape to a fantasy world. It is no secret that drugs change the way you feel; this is why they are so attractive to young people despite their dangers. Young people also take drugs to feel cool and impress their friends. If your friends all smoke marijuana, you will probably be expected to smoke it,......

Free Will; Do We Have It or Not

...Free Will; Do We Have it or Not The question of free will is one which has been hotly debated for millennia. Some people believe that humans have the capacity for free will - the ability to choose their actions without being forced to follow a certain course by either by the influence of others or by natural laws. For many theists, free will is regarded as a special gift from God. The notion of human free will is also an important premise for a lot of what happens in human society - in particular, when it comes to our legal system. Free will is necessary for the notion of personal responsibility. If people do not have free will, then it is difficult to argue that they are personally and morally responsible for their actions - and if that is the case, how can they be punished for their misdeeds? In fact, how can they be praised for the good things they do, if those actions were not also freely chosen? George Orwell did not have free will when it came to shooting the elephant. Orwell expresses his conflicting views regarding imperialism through three examples of oppression by his country, by the Burmese, and by himself on the Burmese. Thus he was not morally responsible. This made Orwell realize his role in society and has made him a stronger man. But first let’s see what led to his feeling toward the Burmese people. The building up of the feeling of pressure starts with Orwell feeling humiliated and disrespected from the Burmese and shifts to a feeling of......

Do We Have Free Will

...Class: Date: Do we have Free Will? Yes. The issue of whether we have a free will or not is disputable. For the purpose of this study, I will look into what others have said about this topic. First, I will consider the opinions of three writers who have written contrary to my opinion supporting their argument with the reasons they have given. Secondly, I will analyze the opinions of those writers who believe that we have free will. This will of course be followed by supportive argument behind their opinions. On the last section of this study, I will rebut on the two different opinions. It seems that we do not have free will. For as (Merrill 293), the idea of free will is invalid because conditions of free will are not succinctly stated. There exists a problem of stating the conditions due to a foggy idea of the meaning in the cause effect relationships. The notion between the cause effect relationships is based on experience. In other words, this relationship is based on a succession of time. Although the succession in time can be proved in the laboratory, it cannot be consciously proved because a human being can do the same thing twice but with different consciousness. It seems that we do not have free will. For as (Clement Dore 500-501) free will is associated with making choices out of consciousness. Free will knows no coercion and one accepts responsibility for his actions. People engage in logical reasoning in making their day-to-day choices, they also have......

Why Do We Have Organizations

...PSY 360-GS Assignment 1: Why do we have organizations? We are surrounded by organizations. What does organization mean? Why do we have organizations? What kind of impact organizations have in our in our society? These are many questions regarding organizations. In order to understand organizations we need define the meaning. When one reads the definition in the dictionary (Webster’s Pocket Dictionary 1990) it says “being organized or organized group; as a club”. In Wikipedia, it has a more definitive meaning indicating “social arrangement which pursues collective goals, which controls its own performance, and which has a boundary separating it from its environment”; two different sources with similar meanings. This gives us a broad idea the meaning of organization. Organization implies that group of individuals come together working / supporting a common goal. Everyone has a role and understands their responsibility in obtaining/ achieving the goal. We now understand the meaning of organization. Why do we have organizations? Organizations are the foundation of our being. It gives us structure on how to function in our day to day activities and helping in achieving the completion of common goal. It defines our role & the importance of our talent/skill to succeed in meeting our objective. By defining everyone’s role, it can maximize production efficiently in completing and meeting the group’s goal. It’s like a long chain...

It'Sb a Woman's Choice to Have an Abortion

...It’s a Woman’s Choice to Have an Abortion Angel Jones Ethical and Legal Issues in Healthcare AIU Virtual Campus October 31, 2015 It’s a Woman’s Choice to Have an Abortion Abortion is defined as the termination of a pregnancy before birth using medicine or surgery, resulting in the removal of the fetus and placenta from a woman’s uterus. Because the process of this procedure ultimately results in the death of the fetus, Abortion has been one of the most debated ethical issues of our time and dividing our nation (Raffel, Borgone, D’Ambrosio, Heydon, 2015). The world is divided on this issue with pro-choice supporters on one side, pro-life supporters on the other side, and the government in the middle. The government is trying to eliminate the option of abortion for women, stripping them of their right to make decisions concerning their bodies. Is it fair? Everyone has their own opinion or arguments against abortion, but ultimately it should be the woman who makes the choice whether to have an abortion or not. There have been many debates on abortion between the pro-life and pro-choice supporters. Among those topics debated has been whether or not abortions are safe, considered murder, or if it’s used as a form of contraception. The pro-life supporters have argued that life begins at the time of conception so abortion is considered murder. The pro-choice supporters fired back stating that nearly all abortions take place in the first trimester, when a fetus......

Why Do We Have Organizations?

...Essay question: Why do we have organizations Simply put, we could theorize we have organizations to accomplish a unified goal – we have organizations to get things done. From the first time a man met a woman and they had a family, we had an organization. The family unit has a unified goal of, at least, survival. Two or more family units together in the earliest age of Earth, had a goal of survival and, perhaps, comfort and company or society. Each organization going forth from this simplest structure exist for at least one reason, to get things done. From our earliest days, we are a part of or impacted by organizations every day. We are born into a family, as noted previously the simplest organization and with at least one unified goal. We may attend daycare and a public school. These organizations are more complex with multi-faceted goals. As we graduate high school and consider going to college, joining the military, or starting our careers, we will always be part of an organization, and likely multiple organizations. Each of these organizations exist to achieve a common goal. Society is a type of organization, so it is perhaps redundant to say we live in an organizational society. They, organizations, permeate every aspect of our lives. If we have a medical need, an educational need, a work need, there will be an organization that fulfills that need. They are the structures we move within day in and day out. From year 0 until we are here no longer; from our......

In an IT-configured society, we should have some privacy to certain personal information and have our information gathered if and only if we give our consent. The importance of privacy, information gathering, and work are some focuses as to why privacy to certain personal information should be respected and retained if and only if given consent. When a person goes on to the internet they do not expect their information to be gathered and spread throughout the internet. Most people think that their privacy to personal information is important and that it should be respected.

Also known as corporate ethics or professional ethics, it incorporates moral guidelines as also the problems a business entity frequently faces. Businesses started specifying their ethical principles from the late 1980s, perhaps to stay away from scandals in businesses. However, there are a million ethical issues in today's businesses and unfortunately there is no perfect decision measurement for all these ethical issues. The ethical issues in international businesses are much more complicated and much more delicate, along with being tenfold in numbers. Therefore, let’s take a look at Corporate Intelligence. How do you think it relates to ethics? And why it is an ethical issue? Corporate Intelligence issue relates to ethics by being a purposeful and coordinating monitoring of your competitors within a specific marketplace. It also has to do with determining what your business rivals will do before they do it. It is to gain foreknowledge of your competitor's plans and to plan your business strategy to countervail their plans.

Is It Ethical to Have Abortion?

...Is it ethical to have an abortion? ETHIC ISSUE It is ethical or unethical to have an abortion. INTRODUCTION Abortion is a controversial social issue that has been continually argued over for the last 40 years. The pro-choice people and the pro-life people hold different opinion on whether or not a mother have right of abortion. “According to the pro-life position, the conceptus has an absolute right to life from the moment of conception onward. According to the pro-choice position, however, women have absolute rights over their own bodies and lives” ( Thiroux, J & Krasemann,2009).On the whole, when we talk about it is moral or not of abortion and whether or not abortion should be legal, we may mainly consider about the result for existence of abortion. This article will analyse this subject by using consequentialist ethical theories. FACTS ◆ 54 countries allow abortion, which is about 61 percent of the world population. ◆ Unintended pregnancies account for almost half of all pregnancies and four out of ten unintended pregnancies end in abortion. ◆ Out of the total number of pregnancies, 24% end in abortion. ◆ The number of abortions per year is approximately 42 million and the number of abortions per day approximately 115,000. ◆ 83% of all abortions are obtained in developing countries and 17% occur in developed countries. ◆ 1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either......
