You mean it is illegal in some countries, certainly not all.

See my earlier responses to Raph and Ola demanding to know if this
"rightness" you speak of derives from anything but arbitrary belief on
your part. Asking "Is it _right_ to be capricious." is completely
meaningless unless we all agree to work from the standpoint of the same
morality. Clearly that's not the case.
