Group Info

A group where philosophical, political, religious and ideological discourse about morality and ethics is done.

DA-Ethics

This group is for uploads of an ethical nature- anything that deals with a moral or ethical issue will be accepted here. This can include articles on issues such as abortion, war or human rights, stamps with an ethical message, philosophical articles or even political cartoons, as long as they have some connection with an ethical message.

“What is ethics”?

Ethics is the study of morality/virtue and certain issues of value, such as the value of the “good life” and forming a good society. It often crosses over with philosophy and politics.

There are three branches of ethics:

Meta-ethics is the question of “what is morality? Where does morality come from?”. Logically speaking, it should be the first question anybody considers when considering morality- it is prior to normative ethics, in the sense that if morality is non-existent or comes from nowhere, then normative ethics seems pointless.

Normative ethics is the question of “how?” in morality- it involves forming and studying systems of morality. Normative ethics studies ethical systems like deontological ethics, Kantian ethics, utilitarianism, consequentialism, etc.

Applied ethics refers to the activity of studying ethical issues (such as abortion, war or euthanasia for example) and of applying certain normative ethical principles to certain ethical issues.

Honest question:

People already abort on a gender-selective basis (usually in preference to males). If scientists ever find a gay gene, do you think that parents might abort on an orientation-selective basis? If so, do you think members of the LGBTQIA community should be pro-life?
