    i think that it is false because everyone has a different view of ethics and everyone has a different view of laws and every one may not feel that what is ethical is lawful..... is that right?

  • HCS/335 -

    I agree with you. We all have different ethical views -- abortion is a good example.

    Laws are more exact and aren't open to a lot of interpretation. Of course, courts do differ on the interpretation of laws, but most laws are clear-cut.

    Another example is that cohabiting unrelated adults is illegal in many states, but this law is overlooked. This may be ethical for many people.
