Romney and Cain: Peas in an Anti-Choice Pod

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

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?


Herman Cain said that, after the U.S. Supreme Court recognized a woman's fundamental, constitutional right to choose abortion in Roe v. Wade, "the very basis of our country was lost."

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?

ROMNEY: Absolutely.

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.

Herman Cain and Mitt Romney: two peas in a very extreme pod.
