Step 1: Read
the following Background
It is late at night and two police officers, Smith and Jones
(longtime partners), are involved in a high-speed chase that has taken them
several miles from a metropolitan area. Officer Smith, who is driving, loses control
of the car, and the car rolls several times before coming to a stop. He is
trapped in the car, and the car has caught fire. Officer Jones, who suffered
only minor injuries, has called for help and is desperately struggling to free
the driver. As the fire worsens, Officer Smith begs Officer Jones to shoot him
in the head so he will not suffer the agonizing pain and horror of burning to
death. It is late at night, no one is around to assist, and both officers
realize that it will be several minutes before help arrives.
Step 2: Write
a 500+ word paper answering the following prompts:
Part 1: Using one theory that you have studied that you agree
with and one theory that you disagree with, describe how Officer Jones would
act in each case.
Part 2: Describe your thoughts on the situation. Expound not
only on this situation but on the concepts you are reading about this week.
Be specific and give examples, using at least two
outside references, to buttress your argument. Cite all sources in APA

Can I end my own life if I am suffering? Numerous states (including Colorado, Wa

Can I end my own life if I am suffering? Numerous states (including Colorado, Washington,
Oregon, California, Vermont, and Montana) have approved propositions that make it legal to help
terminally ill patients end their own lives. While in other states, those who know death is
inevitable often go through a lengthy and painful process of dying (as in the Natalie Newton case
in Texas). Legal, medical, and ethical debates have surrounded the right to die for decades.
Consider how the coded beliefs in our society – both inside and outside of medicine – impact
these decisions and the law governing them. Should a person be in control of how and when their
lives end and what role should physicians play?

The study of ethics and philosophy is one that brings many different kinds of “thinkers” together. One person’s philosophy on ethics is another person’s philosophy on evil. We will be working this term on constructing personal ethical bases and understanding how ethical codes (both personal and professional) are created and followed.
To start us thinking about the different areas of philosophy and ethics, and how we fit into the different molds or world views, let’s imagine the following scenario:
It is 2019. The federal law banning female circumcision is still under appeal in the courts. You are a nurse assisting a plastic surgeon at a local hospital. The plastic surgeon comes from a country where they practice “female circumcision”. This practice is also sometimes called “female genital mutilation”.
Fire Eyes: Female Circumcision, Written by Soraya Mire, Directed by Soraya Mire, Ethnographer Soraya Mire, Narrated by Carol Christiansen (New York, NY: Filmakers Library, 1995), 57 minutes
You are not a member of the doctor’s culture, but reside in a state where this practice is still legal. The plastic surgeon has agreed to perform this practice on a young girl, the daughter of a friend of the surgeon. The friend has authorized the procedure. The girl only knows this is a custom. You did not know that today you would be asked to assist in this procedure. You can refuse to participate (your job may be on the line in the future due to that decision). Or, you can assist the surgeon. What ought you to do? We now want to examine the ethical issues involved. To do this, let’s look at the role of relativism, moral truths, and other issues.
For this post, address the following questions:
What would a subjective moral relativist say about what this doctor is doing? Do you agree with the subjective moral relativist? Why or why not?
Examine what a cultural moral relativist would say here. Do you agree with the cultural relativist? Why or why not?
Name and evaluate general criticisms of cultural relativism as being the wrong moral approach.
Is there an objective moral truth about any of the possible actions by the nurse and/or doctor in this case? Why or why not?
Minimum of 2 sources cited (assigned readings/online lessons and an outside scholarly source)
