Spitzer Violates Human Dignity

Violations against human dignity occur in many forms, and New York's Gov. Spitzer has brought shame to his office and to his family by objectifying women and reducing a core element of human relationships to a financial transaction. Spitzer can't have it both ways--he can't be in support of women's rights and also be willing to exploit them for his own personal interests.

Without the ease and availability of abortion, contraception, and abortafacients, someone like Spitzer might actually rethink his involvement in prostitution. Perhaps the suggestion the he has had a conflict of interest in recent legislative proposals is a stretch, but it is absolutely clear that his respect for women is nonexistent, reducing his political endeavors to just that -- politics.

Unless, of course, he is a "sex feminist". Wouldn't be surprizing as he reaps the benefits.
