HEALTH ETHICS

INTRODUCTION:
Man alone of all earthly creatures is a moral being.
He is endowed with the great gift of freedom of choice in his actions, yet he is responsible for his own freely chosen acts, his conduct.
He distinguishes between right and wrong, good and bad in human behavior.
He can control his own passions.
He is the master of himself, the sculptor of his own life and destiny.

• This moral power in man is the most distinctive feature of the human personality.
• For MAN is principally and primarily a human person whose highest faculty is moral power, his willpower, his freedom.
– viewed in this perspective, everything Human has naturally a moral bearing, reference, and relevance. Thus…
TO BE NATURALLY HUMAN… IS TO BE MORAL.
