By the same token, however, is it ok to own slaves because you believe that the 13th Amendment is immoral because it restricts one's right to property? Or should sexual harassment be permissible because to enact a law against it would abridge our inalienable right to free speech? There is an enormous problem in that one's absolute morals can often differ greatly from those of a society in aggregate. Codes of laws for our society, or any society for that matter, are generally created to best reflect the moral beliefs of the largest number of people in the society. When people to disobey the moral code there is chaos, because two different people can see the same law quite differently (think of Prohibition or affirmative action, for example).
