Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says “aborted babies” would not support fellow candidate Herman Cain.

In a new online campaign ad, Santorum hits Cain for his shifting position on whether abortions should be legal in cases of rape and incest.

Earlier this month, Cain told NBC’s David Gregory that there should be no exceptions for rape and incest. But several days later, he told CNN’s Piers Morgan that it should be the choice of the family.

After spending the better part of a week trying to undo the damage done to his conservative credentials, he finally told Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson that abortion should not even be part of the political discussion.

“The 1.2 million babies aborted in the U.S. last year think otherwise,” the narrator in Santorum’s new ad declares.

For his part, Cain has attempted to clarify his position by saying that he is “100% pro-life,” but a family should have the right to choose an “illegal abortion.”
