Welcome to Ethical Rights
Ethical Rights has been established to challenge people to think more rationally about important ethical, human rights, scientific and related issues. More people might then respect the rights of an individual and act in a more ethical manner, to make the world a better place to live.
The Articles link includes more general and media contributions, such as Time for euthanasia to be regulated, which provides a strong case for legislative reform. The Submissions link includes more detailed papers on human rights, discrimination, euthanasia, and human cloning, amongst others.
Ethical Rights also provides some musical offerings (including written lyrics), often with strong moral overtones, are now available under the Music link, by the new Australian-based group 'Orthogonal Perspectives'. More music will come soon.
Ethical Rights also offers consultancy services on fundamental ethical issues.
We hope you find the information and music on this site challenging and stimulating.
People must not die like this
Angelique Flowers was a 31-year-old writer who died in horrible circumstances. Her YouTube video provides a moving story, and a compelling case for why deaths like hers must not be allowed to occur again. If we are a civilised, rational and ethical society, (voluntary) euthanasia must be permitted. Politicians need to bring about legislative change. Euthanasia is a rational and humane cause provides a strong case for legislative reform. It is simply unacceptable that a humane society can allow people to suffer against their will.
Discrimination is unacceptable
Discrimination, the unjust and prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, such as women, homosexuals, and people of different races and religions, is wrong because it denies all people the equality that being a human demands. Ethical Rights will focus on highlighting discrimination in society, and calling for the elimination of all invidious discrimination.
