Choose a contemporary moral issue in our society and apply the ethical principle of Utilitarianism to approve and be in favor of this moral issue.

The paper must be done in MLA format with a minimum of 500 words (quotes are not included in the word count). You must read Chapter 2 and watch the Week 3 Lectures before you do this paper. You must use at least 3 sources from LIRN, in our library. This assignment is due on November 12th at 11:59 pm. Not applying Utilitarianism or the Felicific Calculus results in an automatic F.

It is thus a form of consequentialism , meaning that the moral worth of an action is determined by its outcome-the ends justifies the means.
