Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain believes that life begins at conception. He is totally against abortions, no matter how the pregnancy happened. It could be rape or incest, it doesn’t matter. Herman Cain believes that abortion should never, ever be allowed.
Well, except if its his daughter or granddaughter who gets raped, then he believes the decision to get an abortion has to be made by the family and rape victim, and if she decides to get an abortion, well… so be it! That’s her decision.
In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Cain said, “I believe that life begins at conception. And abortion under no circumstances.” But when Morgan asked if it were his daughter who had gotten raped, Cain changed his no-abortion stance.
So what I’m saying is it ultimately gets down to a choice that 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, they decide. I shouldn’t have to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive issue.
Herman Cain just justified the beliefs of pro-choice groups like Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). But don’t just take my word on it, even Rick Santorum, another Republican candidate for president, who believes that a rape or incest victim must, not should, but must have the child, says;
“Herman Cain said that he believes life begins at conception, but that it’s up to the individual to decide whether or not to terminate that life, and I find it gravely troubling that Herman believes it’s a life, but that he doesn’t consider it a life worth fighting for.”
“You cannot be both personally against abortion while condoning it – you can’t have it both ways. We must defend the defenseless, period!”
