Ethical Dilemma

Ethical dilemma, also known as moral dilemma or ethical paradox, is a decision-making difficulty due to unappealing or conflicting options. The individual is experiencing psychological conflict because of the compromise of certain ethical principles and that he should choose one; thus, each choice presents significant disadvantages. This is often associated with moral debates such as euthanasia, abortion, divorce, and premarital sex.
