The "Why" Question for Tim Kaine

We have repeat­edly heard from pro­fessed Catholic pols like Tim Kaine that they are “per­son­ally opposed” to abor­tion yet vote for it on a reg­u­lar basis.

There is an obvi­ous ques­tion that this brings up that I really haven’t heard any­one ask peo­ple like Kaine and as I, due to my job, could not see or hear the entire debate, fig­ured I’d ask it here.

You say you are ‘per­son­ally opposed’ to abor­tion, can you explain your rea­son for per­son­ally oppos­ing abortion?”

The answer to this ques­tion should be telling, par­tic­u­larly if the objec­tion is a moral one, because if the objec­tion is a moral one, why is that moral issue not impor­tant enough for one to oppose it politically.
