Cain Clarifies Abortion Position

Herman Cain just released a clarifying statement regarding his pro-life comments on CNN’s Piers Morgan show last night:

Herman Cain Statement:

“Yesterday in an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, I was asked questions about abortion policy and the role of the President.

I understood the thrust of the question to ask whether that I, as president, would simply “order” people to not seek an abortion.
My answer was focused on the role of the President. The President has no constitutional authority to order any such action by anyone. That was the point I was trying to convey.

As to my political policy view on abortion, I am 100% pro-life. End of story.

I will appoint judges who understand the original intent of the Constitution. Judges who are committed to the rule of law know that the Constitution contains no right to take the life of unborn children.

I will oppose government funding of abortion. I will veto any legislation that contains funds for Planned Parenthood. I will do everything that a President can do, consistent with his constitutional role, to advance the culture of life.”

    Terrible generalization, Mark. MANY of us understand the sanctity of life. We are not a monolith, and please don’t let the media tell you any different. Peace.

    If you say people have the freedom of expression, freedom of worship and all that then how do you justify your firm position on not giving people the freedom to be a part of the decision on how they handle their pregnancies and the complications that go with it? what are Herman Cain and the Republicans offering to aid women’s health?

  • Wow! Republicans r using @thehermacain to pull you guys from trusting/rallying behind Obama but truth be told Republicans will never ever let him win the Republican primary elections
