The wife of "Duck Dynasty" star Al Robertson revealed that she considers herself pro-choice during an interview with HuffPo Live Tuesday, while at the same time citing her Christian faith in speaking out against abortion.
Lisa Robertson, who appeared alongside her husband to discuss their new book titled, "A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption," said that she had an abortion as a troubled teenager and that it's something she truly regrets.
"I could have had three children and I messed that up," Robertson 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."
She added that she would never call her abortion "a good choice" and that, if she could go back, she wouldn't make the same decision, claiming that she opposes abortion based on her Christian faith.
"I'm a Christian … I don't feel like that I should have had a choice to take that life," Robertson said.
But she also told HuffPo Live host Nancy Redd that she wouldn't put her beliefs on others and, when asked whether she considers herself pro-choice, she said, "Yes, I would."
"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."

Al Robertson, in contrast, called himself pro-life and said that, if it were up to him, he thinks "it's best not to have a choice to end life."
"I wish there weren't abortion in the world, but there is," he said.
