    Fletcher's 4 presumptions from Situation Ethics can be used as an example . For example, when focussing on the presumption of pragmatism, the system is practical as it allows us to look at the situation and weigh up the action which would be most loving, the consequence of this action, and the motivation behind the action

    Proportionalists claim that doing a 'bad' action out of love makes an action morally good but not morally right. A 'bad' action is only morally right if it is proportionate. This is familiar from Just War thinking.
