Legislating morality

Stan Guthrie at Christianity Today uses a story from the New York Times to report and comment on the frustration Catholics are expressing with Giuliani's "personally opposed but..." position on abortion:
.... Archbishop John J. Myers of Newark said: "I think he’s being illogical, as are all of those who take the stand that 'I’m personally opposed to abortion but this is my public responsibility to permit it.' To violate human life is always and everywhere wrong. In fact, we don’t think it’s a matter of church teaching, but a matter of the way God made the world, and it applies to everyone."
Funny how pro-choice people (and that's the best way to characterize Giuliani) say they can't legislate their beliefs about abortion in our pluralistic society but have no problem when it comes to murder, theft, or even gasoline mileage standards. The fact is, someone's morality is being legislated all the time, so why not on the sanctity of human life?
