Hi! Can someone please help me with an ethics question in relation to the featured case study. This case study must be analysed through the ethical theory of deontology, virtue ethics or natural law (which ever is most appropriate and only one). The scenario raises significant ethical questions about what is right and good or constitutes an ethically problematic situation for those involved. The scenario addresses a variety of ethical concerns including professional, social, political or personal concerns. Please help me !!
"You are driving to the house of your best friend Ricardo. You have known each other for over ten years, and you are also both going out with two girls who are best friends with each other. You all get along so well, and it is convenient being able to all hang out together. As you are driving, your girlfriend calls and says, ‘Promise me if I tell you something you won’t say anything.’ You respond casually, ‘Ok, what is it?’ ‘I just found out that Jennie is cheating on Ricardo. But you can’t say anything! If Jennie knows I told you she will kill me! She says she really loves Ricardo and thinks they have a long-term future together, but she just needs to experience a bit more of life, and doesn’t want to ruin a good thing to do that.’ Your heart sinks. Just then you pull up outside Ricardo’s house. What do you do? Should you say something to someone: Ricardo, Jenny, your girlfriend? If so, what? Remember to use the moral reasoning from your chosen ethical theory.
