The stars of Duck Dynasty have long aligned themselves with the conservative movement, so it should come as no surprise that they are decidedly pro-life. Phil Robertson made this clear in a very passionate anti-abortion speech that recently surfaced on YouTube.
Members of the Robertson family have no qualms about letting Duck Dynasty fans know exactly where they stand on political issues, particularly when these debates have anything to do with their religious convictions. As such, it’s no shocker that Phil Robertson considers himself a staunch supporter of the pro-life movement.
Phil’s pro-life stance is nothing new, but his fervor for the issue has been made even more obvious with the resurfacing of a video featuring his thoughts on abortion. In what is quickly becoming a viral clip, Phil asks audience members to keep the Founding Fathers in mind as they ponder the abortion debate. “From the time you started inside your mother’s womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right. You have the God-given right to live, for crying out loud.”
In Phil’s opinion, this is no place for a discussion on women’s rights. He explained this viewpoint by asking, “We debate whether some woman has the right to tear you out of there a piece at a time? Come on!”
We’ve had a pretty good idea of the Robertsons’ ideology all along and we expect other viewers have as well. But that hasn’t stopped some critics from taking offense to this video. As can be expected with any controversial issue, YouTubers and Twitter users are split, with some providing support for Phil’s views and others taking offense at his rather blunt approach.
