Eliminating the Experts
Utilitarianism in Normative Ethics categorize this paper. Is it morally acceptable for a black woman to be carrying a white fetus? Is it right to allow 59 year old women the opportunity of motherhood via infertility treatment? Was this decision morally acceptable? Perhaps these moral experts, if they exist, are none other than moral philosophers. She is not claiming that all moral philosophers working in this area of moral debate view themselves as experts, but many of them do.

What they take to be good outcomes might vary from maximising happiness to maximising preference satisfaction but they are all agreed that outcomes are the determinants of what is right and what is wrong. If your action has a good outcome it is right. If it has a bad outcome it is wrong. For example, Maclean is surely correct when she points to the impoverished view of action held by Utilitarians, who treat human actions as if they were just like any other type of event. To understand the morality of actions we need to consider the act as originating from a particular agent with a particular motive.
These criticisms of Utilitarians are fair enough, but Maclean is surely going too far when she claims that they are all suggesting that theirs is the only way to approach moral problems and that rationality demands a Utilitarian approach. If we are to use these words correctly, he says, we must reason in the way he describes and he argues that this reasoning leads to Utilitarian conclusions.
