I was wondering how I would go about structuring a sexual ethics question. I’ve been searching on the internet but I’m still confused and my teacher wasn’t in today so I couldn’t ask her

But the question is basically to do with assessing natural law’s stance on homosexuality

What kind of structure would I use like would I mention all of the other theories in the question and for example say how they (in my opinion) is better than natural law or would I just mention situation ethics against it.

Sorry if this is a bit confusing but basically I’m just struggling to put together a structure for my sexual ethics question

Btw I’m doing OCR Alevel Philosophy and ethics

Thank you

My question is :

assess the views that according to natural law homosexuality is always wrong

So would I have to also bring in pre marital sex and extra marital sex?

No, sorry I thought it was for a general question on sexual ethics.

In that case you would have to talk about homosexuality only.

Natural law applied to homosexuality.
Criticism of Natural law's views on homosexuality.
Optional: defence of Natural law.
Optional: Further counter criticism of that defence.

Paragraph 2:
Criticism of Natural law applied to homosexuality.
defence of Natural law.
Optional: Further counter criticism of that defence.

Paragraph 3: Either repeat paragraph 2, or bring in another ethical theory e.g. situation ethics like this:
Situation ethics applied to homosexuality.
Criticism of Situation ethics.
Evaluation of whether natural law or situation ethics is a better theory.
Optional: Further counter criticism of that.
