Yesterday, Rick Perry rejected abortion in any instance after being moved by an anti-abortion film he watched on a campaign bus. Before that, he supported a woman's choice in cases of rape, incest, or where a mother's life is at risk. Now, Perry says he "would allow the legal procedure if the pregnancy threatened the mother's life." Does a shifted position count as a flip-flop if the flip lasts less than 24 hours? Is Rick Perry's campaign manager awake? Or actually working for Ron Paul?
