Describe a time when your moral values influenced the way you responded to an issue. What differences did you notice between your logical reasoning process and your moral reasoning process? What were the possible consequences or outcomes of your decision?
Weegy: My moral values almost always win out. Or at least they always influence my decisions. Even if that means making me feel guilty. I am a big believer in every child has a right to life. [ A close friend of mine was pregnant,and she already is raising three kids on her own. She called me one day and asked for my opinion,on should she keep the baby or abort the pregnancy.I do not believe in abortion,but I had to look at it from her perspective she already is struggling with three other kids and can't afford another child.I also had to remind her,that she can't fault the child when she could have taken precautions so that it did not happen.My moral value is clashing with the logicalside.My moral says to have the baby and put it up for adoption,because there are a lot of families who wants kids and can not have them.The logical side of me is saying,you can barely take care of the kids you have why bring another child into a bad situation.In the end all I could really tell her was the problem started with her,and the solution will end with her. ] (More)

What do you think it means to use ethics or moral reasoning in your thinking?
Weegy: Moral reasoning From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Moral reasoning is a study in psychology that overlaps with moral philosophy. It is also called moral development. Prominent contributors to theory include Lawrence Kohlberg and Elliot Turiel. [ [ The term is sometimes used in a different sense: reasoning under conditions of uncertainty, such as those commonly obtained in a court of law. It is this sense that gave rise to the phrase, "To a moral certainty;"[1] however, this sense is now seldom used outside of charges to juries. Moral reasoning can be defined as being the process in which an individual tries to determine the difference between what is right and what is wrong in a personal situation by using logic.[2] This is an important and often daily process that people use in an attempt to do the right thing. Every day for instance, people are faced with the dilemma of whether or not to lie in a given situation. People make this decision by reasoning the morality of the action and weighing that against its consequences. Although all moral choice can be seen as personal choice, some choices can be seen as an economic choice, or an ethical choice described by some ethical code or regulated by ethical relationships with others. There are four components of moral behavior. The first of these is moral sensitivity, which is "the ability to see an ethical dilemma, including how our actions will affect others."[3] The second is moral judgment, which is "the ability to reason correctly about what 'ought' to be done in a specific situation."[3] The third is moral motivation, which is "a personal commitment to moral action, accepting responsibility for the outcome."[3] The fourth and final component of moral behavior is moral character, which is a "courageous persistence in spite of fatigue or temptations to take the easy way out."[3] This branch of psychology is concerned with how these issues are perceived by ordinary people, and so is the foundation of ...
