Spiritual values are just human values
Good can be based on its success in achieving its telos
The doctrine of double effect can be used to justify an action

"Spiritual values are just human values" - spiritual means religious. This question is basically just asking whether individuals or society needs religion in order to have a stable and well-functioning basis for morality. If religious values are just human values, they aren't ultimately from God and are just as good as human values, however if spiritual values are from God and/or are better than secular/humanistic values, then they are not human values.

"Good can be based on its success in achieving its telos" - This question is just "Assess Aquinas' Natural Moral Law". Standard criticisms of Natural Law apply, if they succeed they should show that moral goodness does not depend on the achievement of telos.

"The doctrine of double effect can be used to justify an action" - You need to know one or two criticisms of the double effect to answer this criticism, and can also throw in one standard criticism of natural law, since if natural law fails the double effect fails.
