    I would never vote for anyone that would support tarring a poor baby apart. It is a sick savaged way to treat something that should be loved. :(

    Cain has real trouble making clear to the public his positions on issues. He's gone back and forth on Muslims in a Cain administration, he's changed so many things about his 999 plan, he's recanted his answer on a hostage exchange, he's retracted and unretracted his statement about an electrified border fence, and now he's given conflicting answers on abortion. This is the sort of thing that he's got to get under control if he wants a real shot at the nomination.

    Of course he is pro-Choice. That was a no-brainer that he was, to me.

    It is completely in line with the rest of his views - fundamental protection of individual liberties and freedoms.

    actually he's very clear. he, himself, would never support abortion. but as a leader, he believes the constitution limits the actions that government can take.

    and yes, syrenn... they are going to go into meltdown, though that wasn't (really) my intent. however, i think starting tomorrow, you might start seeing cain's numbers dropping.

    So? Alot of right wingers are pro choice. I am. I'm 100% in favor of women having the right to choose abortion or not. If you wanna have a kid? Great. Wanna suck it's brains out after chemically burning it? Thats on your soul.

    It's her body. She can choose. JUST LIKE she can choose whether she wants that body insured....or not.

    Agree?

    but most of the "small govenrment" types are major hypocrites on that issue. (though we can disagree about him being for 'fundamental liberties and freedoms'... i just see him as another laissez faire corporatist).

    Hes saying he is an individualist.

    What an individual does is up to them however the government shouldn't be performing or financing abortions..

    He is saying if you want to murder your own child kill the human yourself...

    Now you're a murderer if you did that...

    Not true. Cain stated emphatically that he believed life begins at conception. Leave it to the liberal media to disrespect a republican (but never a democrat) by asking an impossible question but CBS Piers Morgan asked him what he would do if a family member was raped.
