Well, it appears that however reluctantly Herman Cain is pro-choice. He may change that position once he realizes what it means for his chances of winning the Republican nomination, but he’s on the record. Speaking with Piers Morgan on CNN he said the following, in the context of discussing someone who has been impregnated by their rapist:
“No, it comes down to is, it’s not the government’s role — or anybody else’s role — to make that decision. Secondly, if you look at the statistical incidents, you’re not talking about that big a number. So what I’m saying is, it ultimately gets down to a choice that 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 try to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive decision.”
It will be interesting to see what happens to his poll numbers and where his supporters migrate.
