Abusing animals is not ethically okay and should not be done anywhere. Many cultures believe in sacrificing animals for different ceremonies and that is also not ok. and should not be done. Once again, an animals life is not worth any less than a humans.
Ethical standards should not be created based on your religion or based on the country you live in. There is one set of ethical standards that should be applied all over the world throughout every religion.
These ethical standards should be the same across the board.
Some cultures might believe that it is better to sacrifice an animals life rather than a human life. They believe that humans are more worthy than animals are. Abusing animals may be ethical in some countries, while it is unethical in other countries.
Even though you may think that ethical views should be the same everywhere, some people might not agree. There can never be just one view of ethical standards. People are always going to have differing opinions about certain topics, and it can never be that everyone will all agree on one thing.
Ethical standards will always be viewed differently in different cultures.
Child Suicide bombers from the taliban. Just because it is easier to use children to kill hundreds of people doesnt make it right. Children are innocent. the taliban views this act as ethically ok and it is not. Those children can not make an educated decision on wether or not thats what they want to do. Not to mention the hundreds of lives that were cut short due to this ethically wrong decision.
The majority of the world would view this as wrong.
I agree that most people don't like the idea of using children to kill people, but the Taliban views it as ethical. Everyone has differing views on what is ethical or unethical, but how can we say if something is ethical or not? Since not everyone agrees, we don't really have any way to determine what is really ethical and what is not. We can believe that something is ethical or unethical, but it doesn't mean that it is true.
Everyone in the world can't decide on the same things being ethical or unethical.
What is ethically right or wrong for one person is just as ethically right or wrong for another. There is no reason why different people should have different ethical standards. Ethics is something that will be debated forever. LIke Euthanasia or abortions, decisions about a life should not be determined by anyone except for the individual whose life is on the line. Abortions and euthanasia are both ethically wrong.
What is ethically right is not always viewed as being ethical to someone else, even though you might think it should be that way. Yes, ethics will always continue to be debated. Euthanasia and abortion are things that should be decided by the people who it applies to. It might feel ethical to these people, but to others, these things are unethical.
