Abstract and Keywords
This chapter examines the wrongness of killing and the badness of death in the context of Jeff McMahan's so-called Equal Wrongness (of Killing) Thesis, explaining that McMahan's formulation of the thesis contains an open-ended list of factors said to be irrelevant to the strength of the pro tanto objection to killing. The analysis reveals that The Equal Wrongness of Killing Thesis is meant to hold only for those cases where the respect-based pro tanto objection arises.
