The distinction you make is a valid one as it stands but I don't think it amounts to a distinction between ethics and morals.

Of these, two are especially popular, surfacing again and again in our culture under different forms. The implication, however, is that there already was going to be conception and childbirth, as we would expect from human physiology, and that the natural course of this was derailed by the Fall.

Philosophy aided this movement by providing alternative ways to talk about how morality could structure an aspect of life that was not dependent on its religious and political aspects. When our colored friends timidly asked if they could attend a service of the white folks and learn more about the church of Christ, I made the mistake of telling them that they would be more than welcome.

One argument we failed to consider, however, is that prospective biological parents have a right to reproduce that protects them against the sort of state interference that is involved in parental licensing. ARE YOU AN ETHICAL RELATIVIST? o Imagine a scenario in which a teacher returns them an assignment with a grade of ³F. Or, consider the situation in which someone outraged, out of control, asks you where she can find an acquaintance of yours so that she can kill that acquaintance; you know where the acquaintance is and lying will help your friend calm down: should you tell the truth?

And this we must admit, that the judgment of those who would very much lower the lofty eulogies of the advantages which reason gives us in regard to the happiness and satisfaction of life, or who would even reduce them below zero, is by no means morose or ungrateful to the goodness with which the world is governed, but that there lies at the root of these judgments the idea that our existence has a different and far nobler end, for which, and not for happiness, reason is properly intended, and which must, therefore, be regarded as the supreme condition to which the private ends of man must, for the most part, be postponed.

Animal Rights and Moral Philosophy begins by considering the utilitarian argument of equal respect for animals advocated by Peter Singer and, even more favorably, the rights approach that has been advanced by Tom Regan. Seems like a rather arbitrary definition to me unless anyone saying that ethics are relative whereas morality is absolute.

We begin our overview of the main traditions of thought in moral philosophy by noting an early fork in the path between teleological and deontological ethics. 33 The word teleological comes from the Greek word telos, meaning purpose or goal, and logos, referring to science or study.
