Ethical Dilemmas
Choose only one of the ethical dilemmas below to address in your essay. The questions at the
end of each dilemma are intended for you to reflect on. For your paper, you must organize your
writing using the sections and underlined titles listed on the assignment page. Do not copy the
case study into your essay.
1. Pornography
TJ secretly enjoys pornography. He gets a great deal of gratification out of viewing Internet
pornography and masturbating, though he always acts behind closed doors and believes that his
actions have no effect on others. He justifies his behavior by saying, “Who am I harming?”
Then he discovers a statistic on the Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking website
NG_-_THE_FACTS_-_final.pdf), stating that 43% of human trafficking victims are used for
forced commercial sexual exploitation, of whom 98% are women and girls, and that the
pornography business is a multibillion dollar industry (Global Initiative, n.d.).
His freedom to view pornography is now at odds with harm to himself (addiction) and others
(abuse through forced trafficking and media exploitation). (More information can be found at, which is a report by
William May called “The Social Costs of Pornography” provided by the Witherspoon Institute
out of Princeton [May, 2010].)
How should TJ respond? Should he maintain his lifestyle because of his freedom of choice, or
should he change his behavior because of the harm done? What is his responsibility for the harm
that the pornography industry can cause, even if he himself is not directly harming someone
2. Euthanasia
Joni was 17 when she was swimming with friends in the Chesapeake Bay. She dove into the
water, misjudging the depth, and fractured her vertebrae. This left her a quadriplegic, paralyzed
from her shoulders down. As might be expected, she went into severe depression, even having
serious thoughts of ending her life. Her quality of life was severely diminished. Her future
looked horribly bleak. What could she ever hope to accomplish as a human being in such a
weakened state? Why should she be forced to endure a life of suffering and hardship and be a
burden to her family? Should her wishes to be euthanized be granted? What do you think?
Should someone in her condition be permitted to have her life legally terminated?
3. Abortion
After trying for many years, Susan finally gets pregnant. Unfortunately, a blood test confirms
that her baby has Down syndrome, and her doctors suggest she abort the fetus. Susan has a
successful career and wants to maintain a healthy balance between her career and family. Yet she
feels very uncomfortable with abortion. She seeks some advice from Richard, an influential

professor of evolutionary biology who has spent his career seeking to further human potential
and minimize human suffering. When Susan asks Richard if she should abort the fetus or give
birth to a baby with Down syndrome, Richard replied that human beings should increase
happiness and decrease suffering in this world, and that therefore he would suggest that she
abort, though he also stated that she must make this choice for herself. Richard emphasized the
lifelong suffering of both the child with Down syndrome and Susan as the child’s caretaker and
stated that it may be immoral to bring a baby into the world if she knew the kind of suffering the
child would experience. In fact, Richard suggested that perhaps the most ethical course of action
would be to prevent this baby from living a life full of suffering. (This scenario is based on the
following article by Richard Dawkins (2014): How should Susan
respond? What decision should she make if her baby would suffer with Down syndrome, yet she
wants to have a baby?
4. Performance Enhancing Drugs
As a successful young athlete, Paul has been working hard in the weight room and on the field,
and he has earned a starting position on his team. As his team develops, some members of his
team have been experimenting with a new performance-enhancing drug and have seen
remarkable results. The drug is not a banned substance, largely because it is not widely known,
and Paul has seen it work for several of his teammates, who remind Paul of the remarkable fact
that this drug cannot be traced by any drug test available. Paul wants to succeed but is finding he
may be left behind by those who are getting bigger and faster. The coach seems to be aware of
the drug use but has turned a blind eye to it because the team has been winning so far and the
drug is technically not an illegal substance yet. Paul was just told by his coach that some changes
may be taking place and he may lose his starting position. His friend offered him a sample of the
drug to “catch up” with the others. What should his response be in regard to legal, physical, and
spiritual implications?
5. Religious Tolerance
In September 2014, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship was “derecognized” by the 23 public
California State University schools because the Christian organization requires its leaders to hold
Christian beliefs. Tina is a volunteer leader of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at a particular
public university. The new university policy requires that recognized campus groups have a
nondiscrimination policy that says an organization cannot require its leaders to hold any
particular beliefs (Stetzer, 2014). Being a recognized group is important to Tina, since it affects
such circumstances as free access to meeting rooms, advertisements at University sponsored
events, and official engagement with faculty and students. Tina believes that student leaders
must hold to essential Christian beliefs for the sake of the group’s purpose, though InterVarsity
has always welcomed anyone from any faith background to be a part of the group. Yet the
University system requires all recognized campus groups to sign a state-mandated
nondiscrimination policy stating that both membership and leadership positions are open for
anyone, whether they support the beliefs of the group or not (Winston, 2014). How should Tina
respond to the university leadership, if at all? What changes should Tina make to her chapter of
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, if any?

ethical decision and (b) at least two options for resolving the scenario, providing a brief overview of what sort of ethical decisions each
option might make.
2. Core Beliefs: What beliefs about God and humanity from the Christian worldview are relevant to the scenario? How might these core
worldview commitments of Christians influence one’s decision‐making with regard to this scenario?
3. Resolution: Describe the Christian worldview’s proposal for resolving the ethical dilemma. How should the person in the scenario act
according to the Christian worldview? What is the best course of action for a Christian? (Note: The resolution should be consistent with
Christian worldview commitments.)
4. Evaluation: What might be the unintended consequences and perceived benefits of the resolution proposed by the Christian worldview?
5. Comparison: How does the Christian worldview resolution compare to how another worldview might resolve the dilemma? Choose a specific
contrasting worldview, such as atheism, pantheism, or scientism.
