Is Herman Cain Pro-Life? Part 3

I reached out to the Cain camp top get their official statement on his pro-life stance. This is what I received.

Dr. King,

Below is a statement for our supporters:


As President Mr. Cain will uphold the prolife movement legislatively. But one cannot legislate morality in this situation. That’s the point he was trying to make in the Piers Morgan interview, but it was taken completely out of context. Yes, as President he will work to advance a culture of life. To stop abortion, winning the legal battle is not enough. We also have to win the moral battle, so that families make fully informed decisions. Mr. Cain believes that life begins at conception — and supports life until natural death.

As a culture, we cannot end abortion until we 1) accept that human life begins at conception and 2) understand that a human at the earliest stage of development is every bit as human as one in a later stage of development, out of the womb. A baby is no less human than an adult. The same principle applies in the womb. This is a civil rights issue. It has spiritual implications. Choices like these are not made by legislators. While politicians may have the power to make abortion illegal, the most important thing is to make people understand and respect life enough at all stages of development, from beginning to end.

God bless,

    I want to thank God for you, Alveda King. I just saw you on Fox, standing up for Herman Cain. I am white, but I vote for the heart of man, and I who am also pro-life have stood with him then, and am still standing. I believe I heard you, when Benny Hinn was here in Atlanta..I believe it was you who prayed for the healing of Atlanta, regarding blacks and whites. I stood and shouted in the audience. I grew up here in metro Atlanta, but my parents lived down town Atlanta. I went to DeKalb County schools…graduated from Clarkston High in 1967. I married my highschool sweetheart in 1969 and we recently passed our 42nd year. I have 3 sons and now 5 granddaughters. My parents were very active in church all my life…first at the First Baptist Tabernacle, in Atlanta (now a bar), and then, White Oak Hills Baptist Church in Decatur, Forest Hills Baptist Church, also Decatur, and Rehobeth Baptist on Law. Hwy, DeKalb Cy. All my sisters — 4 of us — have served the LORD all our lives..spread out in churches. I led the Mothers On the March in the late 70’s early 80’s and helped defeat the ERA which was such a bad effect on the home…which I was a homemaker. I got my degree in 1991 in Education and taught in Gw. Cy Public Schools for 19 years. I am a dear black woman…led me into the Baptism of the Holy Spirit..I began Women Who Pray in 2000 or so with a website…since I retired in 2010 I have gone full time on fb…and I minister in prayer daily to nations all over the world in prayer…
    Interesting…that today…I hear your interview with the blonde lady on Fox..and I agree with you wholeheartedly!!! The Blacks I know support our president…and call Herman a whitie..or Uncle Tom…I was drawn to Herman by his wonderful talk show and heard him give testimony of his relationship with the LORD and his pro-life stand, so I’ve not been moved…he’s still my choice!! How might we, you and I get the word out of your interview…so they can hear it…so the Holy Spirit in you speaks to them. My white skin often prevents the one of color from knowing that I stand for the heart of the person running for office…not for the skin…Love you in the LORD Mighty Woman of God!!! I hope be before we reach Glory to meet you and hug your neck…

    Amen and Amen!!!! Woooo Hooooo!!!!!! 🙂 <3
