Ask someone about abortion, euthanasia, embryo research, designer babies, saviour siblings, genetically modified animals, human guinea pigs, animal research, nuclear power, pregnant men, assisted suicide or climate change and you'll start a debate.

Everything has an ethical dimension and with a little help, everyone can join in the discussion about what's right and what's wrong. This thought piece might help, and this longer article may also be of interest.

Claire Foster-Gilbert is the inspiration behind the Ethical Dimension and believes that the way people behave is determined as much by the way they perceive the world around them as by any intellectual decision. She makes ethics accessible and enjoyable.
