Rules
have a function of being a guideline that can help reach a problem of some
kind. Rules may also be based on behavior from an individual regarding a
certain situation. When it comes to rules that are based on making right
choices this would be called “rule of practice”. An example, when a woman
decides to have an abortion. Would she be making the right choice? According to
the rules of practice it is viewed that it is unacceptable to kill just because
the decision may give you a better outcome. Having an understanding of what the
function of rules is and brief explanation of “rule of practice”. The
“Rules-Situation debate” is similar to these ideas. It based on a rigorist who
believes that rules should not be violated, while an antinomian is against rules
believing when it comes to rules they shouldn’t apply to any situation because
every situation is always different. Another possible view is an situatonalist
who considers a situation to be different but will guide themselves using moral
rules, which means choosing from right and wrong.
