Law and Morality

Morality and law overlap but are not the same. Morality is a set of rules or values that are held by a community, and such moral standards are likely to have an effect on the law. However, the law may allow conduct which some people would consider is morally wrong. An example of this is the Abortion Act 1967 which allows abortions to take place under certain circumstances. Some people regard abortion as morally wrong. On the other hand, the law may forbid certain conduct which is not viewed as morally wrong. The relationship between law and morality is best thought of as overlapping.
