'Duck Dynasty' Wife Regrets Her Abortion, Opposes Choice For Others (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Lisa Robertson, the wife of Alan Robertson, one of the "Duck Dynasty" brothers, recently revealed that she had an abortion as a teenager in a new book, "A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption," written with her husband.

During an appearance on HuffPost Live (video below) on Jan. 6, Lisa was asked by host Nancy Redd about the question of choice when it comes to abortion in the U.S.

Lisa said she would have made a different choice today had she known better as a teen and added, "I would never say that was a good choice. It was the choice that I felt I had at the time."

Redd asked Lisa whether other women should have the same choice that she had regarding abortion.

“Well, I feel like now, I'm a Christian, and so I feel like it's not right anyway. I don't feel that I should have had a choice to take that life," replied Lisa. "God is the only person that has a choice to take a life or to bring into the world a life, and so I don’t believe that I actually should have had that choice. As a Christian, I don’t think we should do that."

“Now I’m not going to put my belief on you. If that’s the way you feel, then that’s your choice, and then you have to, you know in the end, you have to speak to God about that, and so will I,” added Lisa, noted The Friendly Atheist.

Lisa claimed the next day on Facebook that she was the victim of "entrapment" during the interview:

"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 God's 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."
