Millions of women carry the secret of a past abortion for decades and silently deal with the grief and shame of the abortion and the baby whose life they missed out on as a prospective parent. Lisa Robertson, the wife of “Duck Dynasty” star Al Robertson, is one of those women.
She talked about her abortion in an interview on Tuesday — saying she thinks about the baby she aborted every day. Unfortunately, despite her Christian faith and abortion regret, Robertson supports legalized abortion.
UPDATE 1/7/15 at 6:27 PM ET: In a post on her Facebook page, Robertson says she felt trapped by the pro-abortion Huffington Post interviewer and that she is not supportive of abortion.“Dear Friends, please be in prayer for me today. I am fretful over the interview with HuffPostLive yesterday. I am pro-choice only when it’s Gods choice. I was so flustered over her questions & just wasn’t aware that she was trying to trap me. Call me naive. I had an abortion @ 16 & I clearly stated that it was a decision that I’ve regretted all my life. I also stated that I thought God was the only person qualified to take a life because he made the life. Maybe I will get to minister to people who otherwise would shut me out but I am clearly pro-God & pro-life. I hate entrapment but failed to see it happening.”
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.”
