Respect
Respect

In its simplest form, respect for persons maintains that human beings have intrinsic and unconditional moral worth and should always be treated as if there is nothing of greater value than they are. This principle rests on the unique capability of human beings to behave as rational agents, that is, self-aware and capable of objective thought and the ability to reason. The ability to reason is believed to give humanity an intrinsic dignity that must be respected above all other considerations.
