MSNBC Host: 'I Thank God and Country…Abortion Was There to Save Me\

"In some ways that choice saved my life."

During MSNBC's "The Cycle" on Friday, co-host Toure celebrated the 40th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion by telling the story of when he and an old girlfriend decided to have an abortion 15 years ago.

"In some ways that choice saved my life," Toure said.

He said he was extremely thankful abortion was an option because wasn't ready to be a dad and going through with the pregnancy would have just made "a mess of three lives" because she "wasn't the one."

"I thank God and country that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family I have now. And I pray that safety net stays in place," Toure said.

Being able to choose to have an abortion makes for a "stronger America," he concluded.
