Possible Trump VP Pick Flynn Supports Abortion Rights: 'Women Have to Be Able to Choose'

“I think women have to be able to choose," Flynn said on "This Week."

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Flynn, a former chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency, shared his views on some key social issues, including his pro-choice stance.

“I think women have to be able to choose … sort of, the right of choice,” he said. “They are the ones that have to make the decision because they’re the ones that are going to decide to bring up that child or not.”

The Trump campaign is seriously considering Flynn for the No. 2 spot on the ticket.

“It’s amazing to me, for a kid from a little town in the smallest state in the union, Rhode Island,” said Flynn. “It’s a pretty big deal.”

In the interview, Flynn addressed reports that he is a registered Democrat. He said he grew up “in a very strong Democratic family” but that he feels the party has changed. He did not say whether he has altered his registration.

“I vote for leaders,” he said, “and, honestly, I didn’t vote much in the military because I served whoever is the commander-in-chief.”
