Rick Santorum is hoping to nab some donations by highlighting Herman Cain’s comments on abortion in an interview with CNN last night. From his fundraising e-mail sent out today:
After acknowledging that he believes life begins at conception, Herman Cain went on to say it’s up to the individual to decide whether or not to kill an innocent unborn child. That means that while he believes it is a life, he doesn’t consider it a life worth fighting for. As the author of the legislation that banned partial birth abortions forever, I am stunned that someone running for the Republican nomination for president would have this position.
In fact, Herman Cain’s pro-choice position is similar to those held by John Kerry, Barack Obama and many others on the liberal left. You cannot be both personally against abortion while condoning it – you can’t have it both ways. We must defend the defenseless, period. …
If you stand with me in defense of life, please make an immediate contribution of $25 to my campaign so I can continue stand up for the unborn.
