My alevel religious studies teacher has told me to write an essay on the topic utilitarianism but that topic is confusing to me.

Anyway the essay title is "explain whether or not the two ideas of sanctity of life and personhood can be used by utilitarianism, kant and religious ethics?" and if they do explain how they would be applied.

Firstly I don't understand what the question is asking me to talk about personhood and sanctity of life + apply it to Unitarianism or is it asking me to talk about utilitarianism + include SOF AND personhood?

Secondly what does Kant say about sanctity of life and personhood?

Thirdly... I dont have a mark scheme so What exactly do I need to include in this essay? (Peter signer, Kant, Anne)?
