Legal but not ethical:

I give a person a certain amount of money that is definitely legal. Later I ask him for a favor of some kind, I’m one step from being a slug. This is totally legal but when a person betrays me this unethical. Keeping money that someone dropped is legal, but again, many would find it unethical. The death penalty is also legal in many states, but a multitude of individuals consider it unethical. Smoking cigarettes in public are-legal in some places, but some may find it disrespectful and unethical. Abortion is legal in some places, but many consider it unethical.

Ethical but illegal:

I can think of would be actions such as those by “Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr and others” that connect in acts of civil defiance against unfair laws. For instance, refusing to sit at the back of a bus or being refused service at a white only counter. Taking a child away from an abusive parent when you are not directly related to the saidchild. Digging up someone’s grave because they wanted to be cremated but were buried instead. Talking on the phone to your friend who is having a panic attack while driving to where they are. In some places: allowing a teenage girl an abortion and thereby saving both her life and that of her future child. Seeing someone who is in critical condition at the hospital whom you care deeply about but aren’t directly related to.

instance, a father buying shoes for his two-year old son is legal but if he buys the biggest shoe
size meant for an adult and forces the son to wear, it is unethical act.
Ethical but illegal
Ethics and laws in many instances can be tricky subjects to balance. This is because laws
are not always fixed and are liable to change while ethics vary infinitely and depend on social
culture integration (Ahaduzzaman, 2015). If a country is ruled by a dictator who does not care
about the welfare of the citizens whether die or live and executes those he dislikes, assassination
of such a dictator to save the citizens may be considered ethical but illegal. If a store is on fire
