I would want to fudge the data for him because he is my family, and I would want to end his suffering. However, because my cousin is not my immediate family member, and also because his condition is not life-threatening, I would follow the principle of the Hippocratic oath that I took when I became a doctor, and not falsify data so someone who has a life threatening condition would not get the kidney. My answer would change if this was my best friend or siblings, but that is also why doctors should and do not normally treat family members or close friends; it presents a potential conflict of interest when it comes to making hard decisions. A care ethicist would answer this question by saying that they would absolutely fudge the data, personal obligations come before impersonal obligations every time, according to a care ethicist. Hume would say that a virtuous person would not alter the data because although your cousin is suffering, he is not going to die if he doesn’t get a new kidney. This would be unjust; to help your cousin out at the cost of someone else dying, there would be no justice in doing that. The specific virtues that would be required to help me in this situation would be the qualities useful to the self, and the qualities immediately agreeable to the self. The specific virtue under qualities useful to self I’d use here would be Discretion and Strength of Mind; Discretion because you’re doing something illegal so you don’t want to get caught and go to prison, and Strength of Mind because you need to come to terms with breaking the oath that you took as a doctor to do no harm, which you may be doing here by falsifying data to give a kidney to someone who is not dying just yet. I disagree with Care Ethics because it invites people to be kind and specifically prioritize anything that they do to benefit their friends and family. You should always use reason to make your decisions, not empathy. Logic and reason outweigh empathy in every way possible In
Ethics, or Moral Philosophy, is a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. First studied in Ancient Greece around 400 B.C, morality is a fundamental part of human society. Without basic morality, the human species would have died out before the study of ethics even began. Ethics must have existed before we studied them, or -as stated previously, we would have died out. Inferring that good must have existed before it was ‘discovered’….
of ethics of care is a theory about what makes actions right or wrong. It is one of the ethical theories that were developed by feminists care scholars in the second half of the twentieth century. Ethics of care criticizes the applications of universal standards as a moral problem as it creates differences among people.

The Ethics of Care
The Ethics of Care is defined as the feminist approach on the view that men and women approach morality in very different ways: with men stressing principles, and women stress more on emotions when making a moral choice (John Schneider, Lecture: Ethics of Care).
The main proposals of the Ethics of Care were presented by Carol Gilligan, a psychologist who focused on how women differ in how they approach ethical issues….
1. Should all world citizens have free (no cost) access to basic health care, or should nations have the right to limit access to health care based on their societal values and goals?
On this first question, I will answer YES that all world citizen should have access to basic health care free at no cost without limit.
The reason is this, if the laws and the constitutions that guides each country agrees to the RIGHT TO LIVE, why will it be a problem to sustain the same life that the world….
to the Impoverished From a Care Ethics Perspective
Care Ethicists would argue that we are fundamentally interdependent people, and to the extent that we’re emotionally attached to a person or persons, their concerns should be of ultimate concern for us in our ethical decisions. One would then assume that we would have obligations to help the poor, and I wholeheartedly agree.
However, this topic has incensed me to the core. I knew that when I researched Care Ethics that I would find plenty….

Aristotle uses virtue ethics to answer questions about morality whereas Manning uses what is called ethics of caring to do the same thing. Virtue ethics claims people’s actions aim towards the highest good of happiness. From happiness, moral virtue stems from reasons governing the desires of the soul. Manning on the other hand believes….
