First We need to distinguish between human actions and actions of human:
human actions are those actions that are done by human consciously, deliberately and in view of an end.
Actions of human may not be wilfully, voluntarily, consciously and deliberately done but all the same they are done by human (e.g. sleeping, walking, etc.). It is the intention which makes the difference between human action and action of human. In ethics we deal only with human actions.
So the Scope of Ethics lies with the Human Actions which are wilful and not forced or involuantary.
So whenever a question is asked to you that whether an action was ethical or not, you need to find out whether it was Human action or not. The scope of ethics applies to Human actions.
