Does "The End Justify The Means"

Abby Baytes

My thoughts: The reason for ending something can justify the means for doing it. In other words, in order to have a positive outcome, it is acceptable to do something negative. For example, telling a lie to prevent someone from getting hurt.

Researched: Utilitarianism: consequences determine morality and their are appropriate times to sacrifice rights.
