Yes, there are gray areas. Still, doctors either act ethically when confronted with a grey area or they don't. We can externally judge whether or not that ethical decision was sound.
??? You must be confused; I never mentioned God or nature. The profession is responsible for creating the ethics code. Those "shared opinions" have been formalized into a Code of Ethics. That is the objective standard by which we can judge the actions of professionals.
Well, let's put it this way: If there is no external and objective ethical code; what else could it be but idiosyncratic?
