Herman Cain Backs Human Life Amendment Banning Abortions
Washington, DC -- In an new interview, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says he would support a Human Life Amendment to the U.S, Constitution that would ban abortion by protecting unborn children under law.

I have seen the interview several times already and you distortions don’t hold any water.
So why did Cain clarify and why did he again come out and say he admits to his mistakes. Perhaps his supporters should too.
Because he was asked to???
...why did he again come out and say he admits to his mistakes.(sic)
Because he is honorable enough to???
Golly gee! he wasn't clear with Morgan's dishonest word-twisting change-the-premise-in-mid-stream gotcha questions. LOL Wowee zowee, that wipes out his entire life's solid pro-life stand. /s
I’m curious which 38 states folks think will vote to ratify an unconditional ban on all abortions? (It takes 3/4 of the states to ratify a constitutional amendment).
Or putting it differently, all it takes to block it is 13 states.
Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Minnesota, Maine, Vermont, Massachusettes, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Illinois, New Mexico, Iowa, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maine, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida.......
All voted for Obama. Just takes 13 states from the list, to block a constitutional amendment.
Which is exactly why there is a debate in the prolife community over what is the best strategy. I am willing to cut anyone slack who genuinely wants abortion to end, and who is willing to act in the arena of public policy to bring that about, even if we may not see eye to eye on how best to get that done. That’s why the federal amendment camp cannot be so dismissive of the state by state camp, and visa versa. I’m for trying anything and everything that saves the lives of children. Work for a federal constitutional amendment. But also dislodge Roe v Wade and empower the prolife states to stop the slaughter within their own borders. But don’t shoot our own. How un-prolife is that.
Why should the circumstances of one’s conception determine whether one lives or dies? If you are pro-life, how could one consider that it is ok for the mother to kill a baby because of the crime of the father?
I admire your absolute position. However, if my 13 year-old daughter had been savagely raped by a sexual predator - I would immediately ask a physician to administer RU486 and pray.
Sorry - but I cannot imagine putting a child through 9 months of psychological trauma, a risk-filled pregnancy, delivery and yet another emotional adoption procedure.
