And yet, interestingly, here’s what Cain said to Morgan concerning abortion for people who are not his family members:Herman Cain is very wishy-washy when it comes to matters involving the Constitution.He is Pro-Life but doesn't want government to protect unborn innocent life.He is pro traditional marriage,but doesn't want a Constitutional amendment to protect it from the left,who want to destroy the traditional family.Let us not forget this,Herman Cain said,he believed in 2nd Amendment rights,but then said,the states had a right to restrict those same rights.
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.Morgan then said that Cain cannot hide behind the “mask of the pizza guy,” and that, as a person who may potentially become president, his views on issues like abortion become “a directive to the nation.” Cain’s response?
No, they don’t. I can have an opinion on an issue without it being a directive on the nation. The government shouldn’t be trying to tell people everything to do, especially when it comes to a social decision that they need to make.So, there you have it: Herman Cain is against abortion, personally, but is firmly pro-choice, as he believes the government should not intervene in social decisions. And that extends to same-sex marriage, by the way. As you may recall, Cain said recently, during an appearance on Meet The Press, that “I wouldn’t seek a constitutional ban for same-sex marriage, but I am pro-traditional marriage.”
Being wish-washy makes Herman Cain a good T.V. personality,but it makes him unfit to be POTUS.
