Herman Cain on Abortion: Utterly Mystifyingly Delightful Stuff!

A direct quote from this Republican contender for the presidency of the United States of America:
“I do not think abortion should be legal in this country,” Cain said on Fox today. “Abortion should not be legal. That is clear. But if a family made the decision to break the law, that’s that family’s decision.”
Put that in your pipe and smoke it! It combines the two strands of wingnuttery so very nicely but gets them all confused because Cain forgets that the rule: The government should not interfere in people's lives does NOT apply to women.

The rule for women is: The way your body will be used for reproduction is not up to you to decide. Implying that there should be a family get-together with great-uncle Harry and cousin Wilma voting on law-breaking first is but a very slight attempt to make sure that the pregnant woman has no special powers here.
