Herman Cain Says No More Abortions Then Attacks Planned Parenthood
Presidential hopeful Herman Cain on Sunday made his talk show rounds where he shot down the idea of anyone getting an abortion. When asked about his stance Cain responded:
“I am pro-life from conception, period.”
Cain also revealed that even in cases of incest, saving the life of the mother and rape abortion should not even be considered a choice for women.
Cains pro-life stance appears at least in part to be a personal choice and not a political motivation as he told CNN in an interview:
“What I’m saying is, it ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make,” and “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.”
After making his pro-life remarks Cain went on to attack Planned Parenthood by claiming that the organization has 75% of it’s facilities in predominately poor black neighborhoods in order to target abortions for poor black women.
Speaking of the organizations president Margaret Sanger he said:
“She didn’t use the word genocide,” but “she did talk about preventing the increasing number of poor blacks in this country by preventing poor black babies from being born.”
Cain also revealed during his interview:
“There are a lot of centers that offer sincere counseling, rather than Planned Parenthood claiming to be the centers, when in fact they would rather for the young lady to come in and say they want to get an abortion and facilitate that,” he said. “Plenty of centers out there genuinely do that. What I’m saying is, Planned Parenthood isn’t sincere about wanting to go try to counsel them not to have abortions.”
Do you believe that Cain’s stance on abortion will ultimately alienate pro-choice supporters who find his all or nothing approach to be too far to the right?
