At Pat Robertson’s Site, Herman Cain Pulls Out An Even More Extreme Abortion Position
Herman Cain posing with anti-Muslim hate monger Pamela GellerHerman Cain’s advisers have him going around to all the far right Christian outlets this weekend, desperately walking back his absurd self-contradictory statements on abortion. After trying to snow the cable news networks into believing he might be sort of “pro-choice,” Cain went to Pat Robertson’s CBN News and told religio-political correspondent David Brody that he’s now in favor of a complete ban on all abortion and on gay marriage, enforced with constitutional amendments.
David Brody: “Are you for some sort of pro-life amendment to the constitution that in essence would trump Roe v. Wade?”
Herman Cain:� “Yes. Yes I feel that strongly about it. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I’ll sign it. That’s all I can do. I will sign it.”
David Brody: (In your Faith and Freedom speech) “You mentioned marriage as well so you’re also, just so I understand, you’re for a constitutional marriage amendment as well?”
Herman Cain: “I think marriage should be protected at the federal level also. I used to believe that it could be just handled by the states but there’s a movement going on to basically take the teeth out of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and that could cause an unraveling, so we do need some protection at the federal level because of that and so yes I would support legislation that would say that it’s between a man and a woman.”
