Cain, campaign still unclear on ‘no abortion, no exceptions’ position (VIDEO)

After three weeks of trying to clarify his views on abortion, Herman Cain‘s own presidential campaign has attempted to clear up the debate, but behind the candidate’s back.

Following a speech at a Texas campaign stop Thursday night, where Cain declared he was “pro-life, no exceptions,” an unnamed campaign adviser said Thursday in a statement obtained by CNN that Cain does, in fact, believe abortion should be legal if the pregnancy is the result of rape, incest or a threat to the mother’s life.

In response to questions about Cain’s abortion views, CNN reports that first the campaign gave the network a statement, which made no mention of rape or incest, but said simply:

“I am pro-life, and believe in advancing the culture of life. My record as a pro-life candidate speaks for itself. Anyone who says differently is simply not telling the truth. Next question.”

When pressed further, a campaign adviser told CNN that Cain’s anti-abortion policy is in line with George W. Bush’s, which allowed for exceptions to bans on abortion in cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother.

Cain’s adviser told CNN: “He has learned more about the issue.”

A recap of Cain’s most recent statements on abortion:

Appearing on John Stossel’s Fox Business show on July 17, 2011, Cain said government should not make the decision about whether or not a woman can have an abortion — but also that abortion should not be legal under any circumstance.

On Oct. 16, 2011, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Cain said abortion should be illegal even in instances of rape and incest, but if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, “that family’s going to have to make the decision” about whether to have an abortion.

On Oct. 19, 2011, with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Cain said “no abortion under no circumstance,” but also that it’s not the government’s role or the president’s role to make that decision.

On Oct. 21, 2011, on Fox News, Cain said abortion should be illegal without exception; however, in cases of rape or incest, families should have the choice to break the law and have an illegal abortion.

“My position on abortion, on pro-life, has been the same throughout this campaign, and that is I am pro-life from conception and I don’t believe in abortion. …

A lot of families will be in that position and they’re not going to be thinking, ‘Well, what does the government want me to do.’ My position is no abortion, but all I was trying to point out was, take the typical family in this country and you don’t know what they might do in the heat of the moment. … Abortion should not be legal; that is clear. But if that family made a decision to break the law, that’s that family’s decision. That’s all I’m trying to say.”
