Duck Dynasty’s Robertson clan is known for their deep Christian values, which makes this story all the more shocking.
During an interview this week, Lisa Robertson, wife of Al Robertson, came out as pro-choice, and admitted she had an abortion as a teenager.
“I could have had three children and I messed that up,” Lisa said. ”There has not been — maybe a day has gone by — that I have not thought of this child. … at the time it was the answer that I sought. As I sit here today that is not the answer I would have chosen had I known better, had I been more mature in my thinking.”
“I’m a Christian … I don’t feel like that I should have had a choice to take that life,” she added.
Despite the fact that she admitted her abortion was the biggest regret of her life, Lisa said she is still pro-choice.
“I’m not going to put my belief on you,” she said. “If that’s the way you feel then that’s your choice … in the end, you have to speak to God about that and so will I.”
Despite her opinion on abortion, you’ve got to commend Lisa for refusing to be a hypocrite. Even though she clearly disapproves of abortion, she feels she still needs to own the choice that she made and allow other women to do the same.
Lisa’s husband, however, disagrees. Al made it clear that he is very much pro-life, and has a deep hatred for abortion.
“I wish there weren’t abortion in the world, but there is,” he said.
