Following paragraph is the extract from a book
'Justice : What's the right thing to do' Page 33.

To anyone appalled by the actions of Dudley and Stephens, the first
objection will seem a tepid complaint. It accepts the utilitarian assumption
that morality consists in weighing costs and benefits,
and wants a fuller reckoning of the social consequence.

I can't understand the last line : and wants a fuller reckoning of the social consequence.
I know the meaning of each word, but as for the sentence I have no clue.
I need your help, please!
