  DIGNITY DEMYSTIFIED
Dignity is a universal human concern; is prevalent in modern philosophical, moral and legal discussions; anchors different worldviews; and has different levels of meaning depending upon the context in which it is used.
Dignity is etymologically rooted in the Latin dignus or dignitas meaning "due a certain respect or worthy of esteem and honor." A fundamental inalienable dignity inheres in every human person by virtue of his uniqueness in distinction from all other men and from all other natural creatures.
Dignity is a permanent and inseparable quality of autonomous human beings because they can use their minds to judge what is right and what is wrong.

 Dignity Partners, Inc., - 96CV4558 - Securities Class Action
Dignity's concerns in responding to this motion are to ensure that the Court is fully apprised of the privacy interests implicated by plaintiffs' discovery requests and to seek an order that will protect the individuals whose records are sought as well as the parties to this litigation.
Rather, Dignity seeks to ensure that this access is not obtained in a manner that would violate the privacy rights of third parties and thereby possibly subject Dignity to the prospect of future litigation.
Dignity's concern with this assertion is that the statutory restrictions on the disclosure of information sought by plaintiffs, as well as the liability recognized for such disclosure by several courts, leaves plaintiffs' conclusion far from clear.

 The Dignity of Democracy
And because the concepts of democracy and dignity are subject to different interpretations--all colored by cultural, political, and historical factors--I think quite often we tend to avoid the issue altogether.
As a result, we believe Taiwan deserves to be treated with appropriate dignity and respect as a major democracy, as a society committed to human rights and the rule of law, and as a key trading partner to much of the world, including the United States.
We strongly believe that dignity and respect are universal values; that when the dignity of one is belittled, the dignity of all is diminished; and that since dignity and respect are universal human values, these truths apply not only to relations between individuals in Taiwan but also to relations between states in the global community.

 Dignity Partners, Inc., - 96CV4558 - Securities Class Action Notice
Dignity was in the business of making viatical settlements -- transactions where individuals with terminal illnesses sell their life insurance policies at a discount to the policy's death benefit.
Dignity's financial statements were also false and misleading because Dignity ignored its historical policy collection data in estimating an insured's life expectancy, and failed to adjust its estimates to account for the increase in longevity of AIDS patients which Dignity had already experienced during 1995.
Dignity also repaid millions of its own indebtedness to Wells Fargo and renegotiated the terms of those agreements, releasing the Rotters and Perper from their personal guarantees of those borrowings.

 The President's Council on Bioethics: Staff Working Paper: Bioethics and Human Dignity
A third answer is that respect for the dignity and autonomy of all persons requires us to defer to the personal choice of a competent individual in such intimate matters, regardless of how he or she might decide.
A second problem with dignity in its classical sense is that it lends itself to invidious distinctions between one human being and another; it is not fully at home in democratic times, where it keeps uneasy company with the more characteristic democratic ideals of equality, freedom, easygoingness, and tolerance.
Dignity in this sense would give ethical guidance to us in answering the question of what we owe to those at the very beginning of life, to those at the end, to those with severe disability or dementia, and even to tiny embryos.
