1. Theories applied for addressing the moral status in this scenario:
To determine moral status of a fetus in this present scenario, application of Jon Wetlesen’s multi criteria theory is literally important and genuine (Chao & Green, 2011). Self consciousness seems to be the main idea of approach which seems to have been applied in context of this case study. As in this scenario different characters seems to be suffering from the different problems application of this theory appears to be significant. It seems that with the news of possible abnormality of the fetus of Jessica, everyone has started creating problems. Jessica seems to have got severely depressed which made her wiling and praying which seems not to have been essential.
2. Recommendation presented by the theory:
This theory recommends that consciousness and sentience is the moral issues that are needed to be necessarily managed and aware of by the concerned person. Application of moral essence is more essential which needs to be ascertained. Moral standing for all of them is needed to be maintained. Abnormality is not a problem of this current world (Wetlesen, 1969). It has become a unique approach to let the child begotten and application of proper care on it can let to develop its identity. Multi criteria theory states that no human being is indifferent. Therefore, the coming baby will not be such. Therefore, it can let to develop in its life at the same time.
3. Approach of the theory recommended for this action:
Application of Cognitive theory in this approach may seem to be also a genuine factor which may lead to manage these actions. This theory also idealizes going away from the problem is not the solution which can be attained, rather it is needed to be faced and handled critically so that it can be managed. This theory enables in identifying the actual problem in this current case study and provides confidence to let the situation to be handled.
