This is because it accepts the view that morality is not fixed but universal and in fact, it varies from culture to culture. 4. Same-sex marriage is right because the polls show that most Americans favor it, even if that is not the case in other countries. 4. D= Moral Relativism. This argument relates to moral relativism because it seems to be a belief rather than a fact. This is a statement that differs from what is wrong and what is right, and as a society we don't all believe in the same morals. 5. The legalization of same-sex marriage is wrong because the government has no right to legally sanction any form of personal relationship except one: marriage relationships between a man and a woman. That is the only type of relationship that can lead to procreation, and the state has a legitimate interest in procreation. Thus, the state has a duty to support marriage between a man and a woman, and a duty to refrain from getting legally involved in other types of relationships. 5. B= Duty Ethics/Deontology. I believe that this argument is deontology because its a relationship between a moral human right and a duty that someone believe that the government should do.
6. Dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was wrong because those acts violated the right to life of many innocent people, and we should protect those rights.
