Compare and evaluate Mill's utilitarianism and Kant's ethical view in light of the verdicts they make on the ethical issues concerning global famine or abortion. Choose one (and only one) topic that you will discuss (famine or abortion, but not both). Explain Mill's view and Kant's view. Then compare the implications of these two ethical views about the topic, by describing which actions are morally permissible/impermissible/obligatory according to each view. In doing so, you may refer to Peter Singer's/Judith Thomson's take on your topic if it seems relevant. In light of the result, argue that one of the two ethical views is more plausible than the other.
