Allow me to stipulate a few things before proceeding, with the complete understand that this note will annoy my more conservative readers:
Herman Cain has an abortion issue problem. But so does the Republican Party.
In an interview with John Stossel Mr. Cain gave answers which seemed contradictory saying on the one hand that he is pro-life but on the other hand that the decision of a woman to have an abortion if she is raped is "her choice. Not the government's choice."
And more: "I don't believe government should make that decision." Followed by "No, people shouldn't be just free to abort."
Mr. Stossel was justifiably confused by Cain's remarks, but I think I understand them. Cain did not say that a woman should be prevented from having an abortion, but simply that he believes a woman should choose not to have an abortion.
