Video: Herman Cain Says No Abortion "Under Any Circumstance"

| by Michael Allen

Appearing on NBC's 'Meet the Press' on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said that he didn’t agree with abortion “under any circumstance.”

The candidate, who has promised to work to overturn Roe v. Wade, told host David Gregory that he believes in “life from conception.”

“I do not agree with abortion under any circumstance,” he insisted.

“Exceptions for rape and incest?” Gregory asked.

“Not for rape and incest,” Cain replied. “Because if you look at rape and incest, the percentage of those instances is so miniscule that there are other options.”

But when it came to cases where the life of the mother was at stake, Cain gave a little wiggle room for her survival: “If it’s the life of the mother, that family is going to have to make that decision.”
