Use the legal status of abortion in the Dominican Republic to assess the contrast between moral relativism and utilitarianism. Consider the following questions:
Would a cultural relativist agree with the activists who want to reform abortion laws in the Dominican republic? How does the theory of cultural relativism approach the problem of cultural differences and the criticisms that arise as a result? Would a utilitarian analysis lead to similar conclusions? Can cases like that of Esperanza be used to bolster an utilitarian position in regards to the issue of abortion?
