Despite some legalistic and ritualistic tendencies, Orthodoxy's emphasis on spirituality and striving for perfection served as a safeguard against a minimalistic legalism.

That is, whatever we say about abortion must be based on principles acceptable to society at large, that is, on principles with no distinctive religious character. Each of us will have to work through out sexual decisions prayerfully and humbly. This type of pessimism is developed most consistently in Augustinian-Lutheran theology.

It is not an implausible idea that a human act can have two such aspects which are closely united. These models allow us to account for measurement error, since we have multiple measures of religiosity, Conservative Protestantism, and belief in moral absolutes.
