It is their right as an individual to be able to make informed choices about their own lives even if you disagree with their choice.

Because I am a fair person, I do my best to work for what is just for everyone. I believe in finding solutions to things and helping people in a positive and beneficial manner. I try to avoid conflicts and protect the least advantaged without creating unnecessary hassles for the rest.
When conducting social research it is important for sociologists to consider the range of ethical factors that they might face, as failure to do so may affect the participants or even the overall outcome of the sociological data. From the informed consent of participants to covert research, it is essential to examine the most important ethical issues as they play an important part in the construction of research data. An ethical problem that could be encountered by sociologists when conducting research is the issue of informed consent.

This essay will cover a situation in which an interpreter is faced with an ethical dilemma; whether or not to turn in a hearing student they catch cheating.
The assessment says that in my opinion, what truly counts in reaching an ethical decision is the “bottom line” (Williams, 2006). Analysis of my ethical style says that I believe that each of us has a moral right to experience the “good life.” Therefore, my approach to ethics is likely to focus on what could be done to improve the well being of the greatest number of persons (Williams, 2006). I agree with both assessment indicators and the descriptions relate very closely to me. One section lists frustrations faced by those who have the “results” style when addressing ethical dilemmas and they appear to narrate my behavior well.
