US Army Lt General Flynn testifies before House Intelligence Committee in WashingtonBy James Oliphant WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, under consideration by Republican Donald Trump as a possible vice presidential choice, said on Sunday he favors a woman’s right to choose whether to have an abortion. Asked about his position on abortion on ABC News’ “This Week,” Flynn, a registered Democrat, said “women have to be able to choose” and that women “have to make the decision because they’re the … ones that are going to decide to bring up that child or not.” Trump, the presumptive Republican White House nominee, has said he will pick his vice president before the party’s nomination convention opens on July 18.
