55% Say Abortion Morally Wrong Most of the Time | Rasmussen

Interesting.

Also interesting because if something is morally wrong, then the only chance it has of not being wrong, is if the rules of morality change to fit the situation.

If the rules of morality change to fit a situation, one cannot really call them “morals” at all, since the actual definition of morals (as easily found by anyone) indicate that morals are permanent institutions.  I quote the two most relevant:

1) of, pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical: moral attitudes.

3) founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom: moral obligations.

If morality is a permanent institution, then if something is morally wrong sometimes, then it is morally wrong all of the time.

It is not a far leap to understand that connection.

In light of this recent poll finding, (published this very week), I say again, “Interesting.”
