on these pages it explains the general concept of respect. Respecting a person
as well as when dealing with honesty. Some ethical views explain how it is
wrong to lie to a person even if it brings a better outcome from telling a lie.

In this view it is believed that it shows a lack of being respectful to one
another. An example for this view would be “the lie itself is an element that
makes the action wrong”. (pg. 126) Meaning that even though the lie can bring
something good it is morally wrong to tell a lie. Although many health care
professions treat lying as it brings good to the patients. They believe being
dishonest brings less pain and agony for family and the patient itself. By the
names of Richard Cabot and Worthington Hooker both argued about honesty because
they believed that not telling the truth would cause more harm than being
honest. This caused a change in people’s perspective and making it better for
the patient’s right to knowing the truth.
