    I like what he said, and I believe I understood it.

    He is pro life. You must make your own decision.

    I think he's pro-choice.

    Maybe he thinks it's wrong, but that comment makes it sound like he's for the government staying out of things.

    There is still hope that he is for turning babies into medical waste, that ranks way up there with you.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    yeah....just means that he doesn't believe it's the Governments job to be condoning the practice or supporting it with money.

    The way I read his comment is that he is personally pro-life, and acts in his personal sphere based on that belief. However, his political philosophy is that issues surrounding pregnancy and abortion should not be a political issue at all. Many moderate Republicans I knew felt exactly this way: they didn't believe in abortion, but they also didn't believe that the government should be involved at all. It's more of a libertarian view, the one that Ron Paul should actually have but doesn't.

    Of course, Cain may have to clarify as time goes on, so we shall see.

    how is smaller government that's less intrusive into peoples lives, regardless of the topic libertarian or moderate? Ironic that many think that it needs to stay out of the way in business and other financial areas, but turn around and talk about how the government needs to be in peoples personal lives on social issues.

    The biggest problem with abortion isn't that it happens, but HOW it happened. The Supreme Court in Roe v Wade made a horrible mistake and created law from the bench instead of going state by state (as it was prior to that) or even at a National Level through Congress. It was an extremely dangerous precedent set by the SCOTUS and one that has created the current hyper-politicization of every topic.

    The quote in the OP sounds very clearly pro-choice. Wanting the family to decide for themselves and keeping the government out of it is the definition of pro-choice.

    You may be 100% against abortion in your own life, but if you think that the choice should still be your own and not the government's, that's still pro-choice.

    You are very correct with this statement but I have found many people that this was impossible to explain to.
