On required contextualization of conscientious objection

Standard

” The very concept of conscientious objection is vague and ambiguous and what it actually means and entails therefore depend on the legislative context in which it was inserted, on how that specific law was designed and written, on the nature of the thing  one subtracts himself and on the conflict created by the different rights of people involved. For all these complications a general and aprioristic defense of the concept of conscientious objection is not very convincing ”
