(CHRISTIAN HEADLINES) – Self-described liberal Bill Maher isn’t backing away from his pro-choice beliefs, but he said on his show last week that he’s learning facts about the abortion debate in the U.S. he previously didn’t realize.
Speaking on HBO’s Real Time with Maher, the television host and commentator said the Supreme Court’s leaked opinion has forced him to study the issue more closely. “I learned things this week – because this put it on the front page – that are pretty basic things that I did not know about abortion,” Maher said. “Like in Europe, the modern countries of Europe are way more restrictive than we are. … If you are pro-choice, you would like it a lot less in Germany and Italy and France and Spain and Switzerland.”

“Did you know that?” he asked his panelists, who said they didn’t. “I learned most people who are pro-life are women. [I] did not know that,” he added.
