After an exhausting number of flip-flops on the issue, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain once again changed his position on a woman’s right to choose. Asked at the National Press Club under what circumstances abortions should be allowed, Cain reiterated, “I am pro-life, from conception. End of story.” This is what he’s held all along. However, when asked whether he’d back legislation that bans abortions without exceptions, he said, “Yes I would.” Watch it:
This is in direct conflict with his own campaign, which insisted that he — like President George W. Bush — supported exceptions for rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. When asked whether he’d support such a ban on the state or federal level, he said, “I can’t determine the state level, but I would support that at a federal level if that legislation were to come to my desk.” This, incidentally, also contradicts his statement that he’d sign a constitutional amendment that would mandate an abortion ban on all states.
