    Abstract

    The article focuses on the moral implications of fair share factors. The fair share factors has been argued by several philosophers because of considerable intuitive force which it is unfair to require a person to make sacrifices for the other person. Fair shares objection is composed of two positions on the extreme principle, the counter-objectors and the objectors. The counter-objectors has believed that objection could be dismissed on a life threatening case. On the other hand, the objectors has claimed that an individual are never required to do more than their fair share.
