Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn said this past weekend it should be a woman’s choice whether or not to have an abortion. After that seemed to ruin his chances with the Yakking Yam, he completely reversed himself.

“This pro-choice issue is a legal issue that should be decided by the courts. I believe in law,” Flynn told Fox News. “If people want to change the law, they should vote so that we can appoint pro-life judges. I believe the law should be changed.”


He sent shockwaves through anti-abortion groups Sunday when he said on ABC’s “This Week” that women should have “sort of, the right of choice” with regard to abortion. Many interpreted Monday’s backpedal as evidence Flynn was under serious consideration as a potential VP pick for Trump.

In the Fox News interview, Flynn went on to call himself a “pro-life Democrat” and said that he is focused on national security rather than “social issues, gay rights and abortion rights.”

“If people are going to decide [the] election on abortion issue they should just stay home,” hetold Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin.
