Romney and Cain: Peas in an Anti-Choice Pod
The Republican candidates for president are locked in a grudge match, and they're all still duking it out over who can be the biggest opponent of a woman's right to choose.
Lately, people have turned their attention to Herman Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza.
Is Mr. Cain as anti-choice as the rest of the Republican candidates?
He also said that he "absolutely would defund Planned Parenthood," and that he's "pro-life from conception."
Which brings us to our next anti-choice Republican candidate: former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
In the past, Gov. Romney claimed to be pro-choice when it was politically convenient, and a lot of people don't realize just how opposed he is to a woman's right to make personal, private medical decisions.
This weekend, the former governor himself spelled out his anti-choice views for us. Here's an exchange he had with former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) on Fox News:
HUCKABEE: Would you have supported a constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception?
Doesn't get much clearer than that!
Mitt Romney supports a state constitutional amendment that would not only outlaw abortion--including in cases of rape or incest--but that could also ban many common forms of birth control.
