A new poll by the Economist/YouGov organization shows glaring contradictions in the way Democrats define morality. On most moral issues, Democrats, take relaxed and tolerant attitudes, with big majorities saying they accept abortion, divorce, gambling, drinking alcohol, birth control, interracial marriage, gay sex, pre-marital sex and doctor-assisted suicide.
One form of behavior, however, drew overwhelming condemnation. Among Democrats, an astonishing 82 percent found “hunting animals for sport” to be morally wrong.
If this reflects a tender concern for all living things, isn’t it worth asking if a baby in the womb is a living thing? Even if someone doesn’t consider the baby to be fully human before delivery, surely that unborn child deserves as much respect as, say, a deer.
Yet Democrats find abortion more acceptable than hunting, by a margin of three to one—showing obtuse inconsistency at best, utter derangement at worst.
