    Please edit it -- "anti-moral"? Not a proper usage

    Here:

    A father often rapes his own daugher who kills him in a rage, which is really an anti-moral tragedy.
    I tried to use "a human relations tragedy" to substitute "an anti-moral tragedy". But I'm not sure whether it is right.

    It's a very odd sentence. Is there any context?

    Maybe "a tragedy against all (family) ethics"
    or
    "A tragedy challenging all family ethics"

    ???
