Of course it is true that sometimes one has to act according to his or her moral compass even if that adversely affects other people. However, part of making a moral decision has to do with the impact it will have on other individuals, so that should be at least taken into account.
I choose not to steal - this is a moral decision and it affects others.
I often ignore speed limits - it is a moral decision that might affect others.
I choose to pay taxes and not try to cheat on them - again moral, but not private in effects
Everyone has different morals. We really need to respect that. For example, i understand that some people may think abortion is wrong and murder. Others dont consider it murder or wrong. Its not fair if your opinion is going to stop a woman from getting a life changing procedure such as an abortion. I'm not a fan of religion and dont think it has a place in society today. Just because i think that doesn't mean others do. Therefore, people should be able to worship, no matter what i think. Just keep your morals out of my life and ill do the same. Its like treating others the way you want to be treated. You go by your morals and i go by mine. Even if ours disagree they wont have affect on the other. I know people dont like it when others morals get in their way so dont put yours in the way of others.
