Herman Cain’s incredible muddle on Piers Morgan about abortion is really bad news for Mitt Romney because it will only renew discussion and highlight Mitt Romney’s post-2002 flip-flop on abortion. In this 2002 debate, he delivers an unabashed, and thought-out, pro-choice position.



UPDATE
: This clip also includes a debate in between Romney and Ted Kennedy wherein Romney delivers another defense of his pro-choice positions.

Interesting side note is the Mormon Church’s official position on abortion:

Church leaders have said that some exceptional circumstances may justify an abortion, such as when pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy, or when the fetus is known by competent medical authority to have severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. But even these circumstances do not automatically justify an abortion. Those who face such circumstances should consider abortion only after consulting with their local Church leaders and receiving a confirmation through earnest prayer.
