Herman Cain’s Ever-Changing Position on Abortion

International Business Times: Cain Now Opposes Abortion With No Exceptions: His Ever-Changing Positions, by Maggie Astor:

Herman Cain said on Sunday that he opposed abortion under all circumstances, including in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother's life.

This position puts Cain to the right of even most anti-abortion/pro-life activists, who often oppose exceptions for rape or incest but almost invariably support an exception if a woman's life is in danger.  

It is also the latest in a string of contradictory positions he has taken on abortion, which raises the question of whether he actually believes abortion should be illegal without exceptions or whether he just thinks that's what voters want to hear. . . .
