Module 5The information that you will need for the discussion can be found in Case 5, pp. 93-94; Case 25, p. 97; and Case 9, p. 110 of Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues. As in all cases for this course, you must identify the parties and the moral issue(s) at stake. Then concentrate on identifying the rights that are at stake. Are they liberty rights? Claim rights? If claim rights, against whom are the claims addressed? Try also, to see if there are any duties of natural law that you think are relevant.Case 5- The parties involved in this case are the woman, the attacker and the passersby’s. I think the woman in this case should have called the cops to alert them of the incident after the attacker was gone of course. I also agree if the woman was unable to then yes the passerby’s should have alerted authorities or even try to render aid. But for them to do nothing is morally wrong. The man was an innocent by definition he did not attack or threaten another he was merely trying to protect the woman.
