"Morally Correct"

is this how far we've fallen?

so anyway, via Memeorandum, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Crazyville) has a somewhat twisted sense of "moral" issues:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein told CNSNews.com that using tax dollars from pro-life Americans to pay for insurance plans that cover abortion is morally correct.
Really? There was a time when we debated over whether abortion was right or wrong, now the debate is over who should pay for it.

So, the science is settled, is it? Perhaps the good Senator could put me some knowledge as to exactly when life begins, 'cause the last time I checked, no one has figured that out.

Sen.Feinstein continues:
"Is it morally correct? Yes, I believe it is. Abortion is legal, and there (are) certain very tragic circumstances that a woman finds herself in. Married, with an unborn baby that’s unable to survive outside of the womb, her doctor tells her it’s a threat to her health. I think she ought to have a policy available to her."

CNSNews.com asked: "So it’s morally right for pro-life taxpayers to have to help pay for plans that cover abortion?"

Feinstein responded: "Please. We pay for a lot of things that we may or may not agree with, and taxpayers pay for it, for those things, as well."

I could go on for days about the things we pay for but do not agree with (the Department of Education and the NEA spring to mind), but I would not frame my arguments against on "moral" grounds. I prefer to debate such issues on a Constitutional basis. Not that Sen.Feinstein has any concerns about the Constitution.....
