Herman Cain Is Pro-Life Or Pro-Choice [VIDEO]
Well Herman Cain might have stepped in it. Cain has always said that he is pro-life, but in at least two interviews lately his position might be a little murky. On Wednesday night, Herman Cain appeared on Piers Morgan’s TV show on CNN and said this:
“I believe that life begins at conception and abortion, under no circumstances,”
Cain told Morgan. Pressed on if he would apply this same directive to his grandchildren, Cain candidly responded.
“It comes down to, it’s not the government’s role or anybody’s role to make that decision. Secondly, if you look at the statistical incidents, you’re not talking about that number. What I’m saying is it ultimately gets down to a choice that the family or that mother has to make. Not me as president, not some politician, not a bureaucrat. It gets down to that family. And whatever they decide. I shouldn’t have to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive issue.”

So in this exchange it seems as though Cain personally is against abortion, but believes it should be up to an individual to decide in their own circumstance. Many in the pro-life movement probably won’t like that answer as many see it as not entirely pro-life. That brings us to this video from earlier in October:
What? One second he is saying it’s a woman’s choice then five seconds later he wants to outlaw abortion. It looks as though Herman Cain is waffling on an issues that could make or break him in Iowa.
Depending on how Cain handles this you could expect his polling numbers to start plummeting.This might be the day that Rick Perry’s numbers start to turn around. Cain personally might be pro-life, but for everyone else he seems like he is pro-choice. How will the pro-life community feel about that?
