Susan B. Anthony List wants Cain to sign pro-life pledge
by Matt K. Lewis
The socially conservative Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) is questioning Herman Cain’s “commitment to pursue pro-life policies while in office after he made confusing and seemingly contradictory remarks to the media,” according to a release.
The group is encouraging members to contact Cain and urge him to sign their Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge in order to “clarify his position.”
“A candidate’s view of women and the unborn must be crystal clear to the pro-life voter, and Herman Cain’s confusing and fluid position on pro-life policy is unsettling,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the SBA List. “When the lives of millions of the unborn are at stake, what a presidential candidate would do to advance pro-life priorities must be stated clearly and unequivocally.”
“Mr. Cain’s signature on our pledge would remove any doubts about his pro-life commitments as president,” she added.
Earlier this year, Cain made news when he declined to sign the group’s pro-life pledge.
