While Republicans battle it out for the party’s nomination for president of the United States, pro-life groups are keeping track of the candidates’ stance on abortion.

The Susan B. Anthony List just announced that Herman Cain has signed its Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge. Mitt Romney, meanwhile, has yet to sign on the pro-life dotted line.

“This decision is consistent with the Herman Cain we have come to know,” says Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List. “He understands the wound abortion is to America and especially to the most vulnerable among us—people that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger labeled ‘human weeds.’”

Cain explained his pro-life convictions. He noted that he is an associate Baptist minister and is 100 percent pro-life.

“I will not appoint judges who legislate from the bench. I will appoint judges who will strictly interpret the U.S. Constitution and understand the limitations on government and separations of power set forth in the U.S. Constitution,” Cain says. “Where my powers in the Executive Branch are concerned, I will work at all times to oppose government funding of abortion. I will veto any legislation that contains funds for abortions. I will do everything that a president can do constitutionally to advance the culture of life.”

In addition to Cain, Michele Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum have also signed the SBA List Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge. Thad McCotter and Tim Pawlenty also signed, but have since withdrawn from the race.
