For many people, the film Philomena was an introduction to a history of Irish babies being taken from their unwed mothers and adopted to “good” Catholic families in other countries. I put “good” in quotes because often what qualified a couple was the ability to pay. In the last week, news has come out of Ireland of a mass grave holding the remains of 796 infants buried in a septic tank on the grounds of a former “mother and baby” home in Galway.…

Delay, something late or postponed, can be looked upon as either ethically good or ethically bad. The difference depends on the basis for the delay, whether it was intentional and, if so, what purpose and what was the outcome.

The Principle emphasizes the need to be aware of the consequences of an action or inaction. …
