We present an integration of rational moral reasoning with emotional intelligence. The moral reasoning system alone could not simulate the different human reactions to the Trolley dilemma and the Footbridge dilemma. However, the combined system can simulate these human moral decision making processes. The introduction of affect in rational ethics is important when robots com-municate with humans in a practical context that includes moral relations and decisions. Moreover, the combination of ratio and affect may be useful for ap-plications in which human moral decision making behavior is simulated, for ex-ample, when agent systems or robots provide healthcare support.
