They most certainly are.
(Politico) — Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain stiffened his opposition to abortion Sunday, doubling down on past comments that Planned Parenthood is perpetrating genocide against the black community and insisting that he opposes abortion even in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother.
“I am pro-life from conception, period,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
The candidate told host Bob Schieffer that stands by his vocal criticisms of Planned Parenthood in the past.
“If people go back and look at the history and look at Margaret Sanger’s own words, that’s exactly where that came from,” Cain said, asserting that 75 percent of Planned Parenthood facilities were built in the black community.
“She didn’t use the word genocide,” he added, of Sanger. “But she did talk about preventing the increasing number of poor blacks in this country by preventing poor black babies from being born.”
Cain claimed that the family planning organization does not actually try to talk pregnant girls out of abortions when they come in their clinics.
“Planned Parenthood isn’t sincere about wanting to try to counsel them not to have abortions,” he said.
