RALEIGH — Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson released a video Thursday that addressed recently unsurfaced Facebook comments about an abortion he paid for in 1989. The Facebook post confirmed by Robinson.
Robinson says in the video, accompanied by his wife, Yolanda, that before they were married and had kids, they had an abortion.
“Over 33 years ago before we were married and before we had kids, we had an abortion. It was the hardest decision we ever made. And sadly, it was the wrong one,” Robinson says in the direct to camera video lasting just over one minute.
Robinson continued, saying that the decision has been with them ever since and that he was sharing their story because the issue transcends politics and he hoped that sharing their story would help others going through similar experiences.
“We have a savior who forgives us of our sins and offers us grace. No one is perfect. And no one is too far gone to be saved,” he continued.
