I think of those words from Cousin Eddie every time abortion is mentioned as a political topic. This is consistently the message preached by the Party of Death, regardless of what side of the aisle they are on. Allegedly Catholic politicians who have sold their souls to Molech will express their deepest "personal" opposition to killing babies, but they just can't bring themselves to impose their morality on the nation as a whole.
Isn't it odd that this whole reluctance to legislate morality goes out of the window on pretty much every other issue, from immigration to gun control?
How many times have we heard that certain taxation or spending policies are "just the right thing to do"?
Nobody makes purely economic arguments for these sorts of things. It's always phrased in terms of morality and "doing the right thing."
Unless it's murdering babies. Then we have check our morals at the door and bow to the whims of convenience.
