Lisa Robertson, the wife of beardless Duck Dynasty brother Al Robertson, is making headlines this week with her candid thoughts on the topic of abortion.

Her views on the subject are not what you’d probably expect to hear …

Millions who watch Duck Dynasty online do so in part because of the Robertsons’ strong family and Christian values, even if they aren’t overt.

Off the set, however, patriarch Phil Robertson in particular has made myriad controversial comments on abortion, homosexuality, morality and more.

"If the dude or woman is for ripping human fetuses out of their mother’s womb, don’t ever vote for that. Don’t ever say ‘yes’ to that," Phil famously said.

"It’s terrible. We’ve lost it, folks. We ran God out of our schools. We ran him out of the entertainment business. We ran him out of the news media."

"We’ve run him out of the judiciary, and we’ve run him out of Washington D.C. Well, what you get is what is left up there. They’re ungodly. You agree?"

Lisa Robertson, apparently, does not.

Promoting her new book with Al, A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption, she says she breaks with her in-laws here.

In the book, Lisa admits to having an abortion at a young age during a troubled time in her life, a decision she went on to call "something I truly regret."

"I would never say that that was a good choice," she says. "It was the choice I felt I had at the time … I don’t believe I actually should’ve had that choice."

"As a Christian, I don’t think we should do that," she says of abortion, however, she does not believe it is her place to "put my belief" on anyone else.

"I’m not going to put my belief on you. If that’s [how] you feel, that’s your choice," Lisa said, when asked if she would call herself pro-choice. "Yes, I would."

Al, meanwhile, respectfully disagreed, saying that simply not believing it’s the right thing isn’t enough, and wishing "there weren’t abortion in the world."
