Exploring Global Ethics As an Ethical Philosophy

Global Ethics on Human Embryo Research

Global Ethics is a book written by Michael J.ompler. It is a guide for people interested in studying, acting, and leading as an ethical human resource consultant, professional, or governmental advisor. It covers a broad spectrum of topics dealing with the general, ethical, and legal issues surrounding human embryonic research. It focuses on the potential impact on human life of research involving human embryos at the very early stages of life. Specifically, it addresses the issue of cloning, ethics of gene therapy, and whether or not to use human embryos for research purposes. While this book may seem technical, there is a very simple underlying philosophy that undergirds much of the content.

 

The author begins by briefly describing what ethical philosophy is, then goes into a short but excellent primer on how the concept of global ethical standards really works. Then, he briefly discusses the various areas of human endeavor that are governed by various strands of global ethics. With these introductions, the reader is better prepared to move forward and consider how they might relate to their own personal ethical decisions and actions.

 

According to the book, ethical decisions regarding human stem cells must be based on the premise that human beings are persons with rights. Furthermore, the author maintains that individuals have the right to determine the nature and fate of their own body and lives. By choosing to research with human cells, the potential parents of such embryos have the right to decide how those embryos will be developed and eventually used in their own families. If those potential parents choose not to use the human material, then others should be allowed to do so.

 

The author contends that when research involving human embryos is done in the most responsible and ethical manner possible, there is a strong likelihood that research will result in new technologies that improve human health, raise standards of living, provide answers to age-old questions, and possibly even prolong human life. This is a noble cause. It is also one that everyone has a responsibility to participate in. By using ethical means to investigate and record ethical research, we can work toward the ultimate goal of creating a world where human life is enhanced, not destroyed. In doing so, we allow ourselves the privilege of thinking and acting responsibly about the way we treat other human beings, including those who cannot speak for themselves, have no voice of their own, and often have no control over the fates of their lives.

 

Global ethics is the philosophical foundation upon which this ethical philosophy is based. Global ethicists support the idea that human rights and the universal principle of equal moral evaluation must be upheld at all times. If a nation violates these universal principles, they are obligated by international law to respect and uphold these principles, which they have signed into force. Therefore, a country that violates these ethics in some way is in violation of its obligations to those who sign these commitments.

 

The United States has been an advocate for global justice. At the same time, the US does not believe in singling out one group or another as targets for unjust punishment. The UN has been a force for greater awareness of the problems of developing countries and the terrible conditions they face because of their lack of resources. For this reason, the UN has recommended that member states to increase their investments in programs that promote economic growth, political freedom, healthcare access for all, access to safe drinking water and clean energy, and respect for the rights of women. Each of these areas is a matter of concern to the human population living in developing nations.

 

Global ethics is an ethical philosophy that is inclusive of the promotion of individual freedom and economic opportunity. It is based upon the understanding that all human rights begin with the right to life and end with the right to dignity. A society that denies its citizens this basic right is not one worthy of maintaining and the path to a just and fair society are easily blocked when individuals no longer have any sense of social responsibility or the desire to see that it’s society that is free and prosperous.

 

Unfortunately, many people do not see Global Ethics as a practical guide for their actions or the way they should live their lives. This is unfortunate, as there are many ethical issues that cannot be discussed in a general way without taking into account the specific circumstances of a country or group of people. As such, you can find many individuals and groups who support Global Ethics and their belief system, yet they do not see Global Ethics as their ultimate guide for life choices or as a moral imperative to help them achieve certain results in their lives. Thus, when it comes to finding ethical behaviors and the practice of Global Ethics, you need to approach it from both an intellectual and emotional perspective in order to find the highest level of effectiveness.
