Stacey Abrams Tells CNN She Was Pro-Life Until She Went to College
“for me, as a matter of faith, means that I don’t impose those values systems on others”
It’s fascinating how Abrams tries to make being pro-abortion sound like a matter of faith. Most people of faith think the exact opposite.

Stacey Abrams admits to being pro-life until she went to college
Former Georgia House representative and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams admitted during an Aug. 7 interview with CNN’s Dana Bash that she was pro-life until she went to college.
Abrams credited her college experience with flipping her stance on abortion. According to the gubernatorial candidate, she began to reposition her beliefs after having conversations with a “friend” who used faith to ground her pro-abortion argument.
“I’ve thought about my faith a great deal. In fact, I was anti-abortion until I went to college. And there I met a friend who has my shared faith values, but we started having conversations about what reproductive care and abortion care really is,” Abrams said on State of the Union. “And when I talk about that, it was an experience that I had because she was able to give me a different perspective.”
These discussions prompted her to consider the role government plays in regulating abortion, which is now an adamant policy feature of her political campaigns, including her first race for governor of Georgia
Now in her second run for governor of the Peach State, she has vowed to push numerous pro-abortion policies, including defunding crisis pregnancy centers and repealing the state’s recently adopted 6-week abortion ban.
“This is health care. This is about a woman’s right to control her body…And that, for me, as a matter of faith, means that I don’t impose those values systems on others,” Abrams stated.
Abrams attended Spelman College in Atlanta for her undergraduate degree. She then went on to complete her Master’s degree at the University of Texas at Austin and earned her J.D. from Yale Law School.
Campus Reform has reported on the overt pro-abortion sentiment pushed on college campuses. In the days following the overturn of Roe v. Wade earlier this year, for example, Campus Reform found that 62% of university statements condemned the Court’s ruling.

Does anyone really believe her?
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Abrams probably didn’t have to worry about getting pregnant when she was in college. Or ever since.
Not just Abrams. Look at a LOT of the women demonstrating for “women’s health”. Being polite, I don’t think any of them have a risk of pregnancy, and their loudly expressed sentiments are based on wishful thinking. That, (here I go…) some day their prince will come.
With the twist that when they kiss their prince, he turns into a frog.
But, the French are supposed to be so romantic.
Ha ha! I had the same conversion, only I thought mine through.
I converted from authoritarianism (“it’s moral to make someone do something he doesn’t want to if it’s for his own good”) to libertarianism (“if you’re not free to make mistakes, you’re not free.”)
Only I realized that the abortion question quite likely affects the rights of TWO people — not just one — making the other one a defenseless victim of lethal force.
Sounds like Stacey only went as far as she needed to get the result that benefited her, then stopped.
Ironically, that is also a perfect description of Democrat elections (including the mandatory recounts when they lose).
