by The Insider 3:05 mins

“Duck Dynasty’s” patriarch, Phil Robertson, gained traction online for speaking out against abortion in a passionate and controversial video that has been posted on several conservative websites. In the video, the reality star says, "From the time you started inside your mother's womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right. You have the God-given right to live, for crying out loud." And it’s not just Phil taking a political stand. Fellow “Duck Dynasty” co-stars Jase and Missy Robertson promoted abstinence during a recent radio interview. Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham from Fox News says the focus on faith and family has helped to launch “Duck Dynasty” as a ratings success. But could Phil’s anti-abortion speech hurt the show?
