As the fourth season of the cable TV reality show "Duck Dynasty" is setting records in ratings, a video has surfaced family patriarch Phil Robertson unabashedly declaring his pro-life stance.
The speech, given three years ago, shows Robertson being just as outspoken off set as he is on the set.
"Listen, from the time you started inside your mother's womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right, you have the God-given right to life for crying out loud," he says in the video. "You're this long (pointing to his finger). You're a week old inside your mother. They suck you out of there when you're about like that (point to finger again). You wouldn't be here tonight!"
"And we debate whether it's a - some woman's right to tear you out of there a piece at a time! C'mon! You have a God-given right to live. And of all places, inside your mother - what in the world happened to us?" he challenged.
Robertson added that America needs more George Washingtons, Thomas Jeffersons, and Andrew Jacksons -- and a God-given right to live, to be free, and to pursue happiness.
