Are Moral Choices Emotional?

If making a logical decision is too complicated, we might make an emotional choice solely for the purpose of having an answer to create prediction.

This emotional choice may come from outside ourselves, from a social myth like religion, political affiliation, family mores, etc.

This makes me think that the really hard choices in life are indeed moral ones, yet I wonder how much those moral choices are mostly emotional in nature.
