I believe that Herman Cain is authentically pro-life and that he would appoint judges who would interpret the Constitution properly. But he tried to get too political in answering questions about abortion from Piers Morgan.
Please see How I wish the abortion-for-rape debate would go for a simple and effective way to navigate through the rape and incest exception questions. This works whether you are being interviewed by a “gotcha” journalist or just having a conversation with a friend.
Pro-lifers need to quit apologizing for their views and start being more consistent. This is not that complicated. The unborn are unique, living human beings from conception. That is a scientific fact. They shouldn’t be killed because they are unwanted or as punishment for a crime someone else committed.
