California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner appeared on CNN's "New Day" Tuesday, ahead of the states recall election next week, and took the time to share her feelings on the strict abortion law recently passed in Texas.

As reported by The Hill, Jenner explained that she is for "a woman's right to choose" and also for "a state having the ability to make their own laws."

Watch Jenner's exchange below with anchor Brianna Keilar.


Texas' abortion law essentially outlaws abortions at six weeks, when most people don't even know they are pregnant. Similar laws are reportedly being considered in other states such as Florida.

"The new law makes it illegal for an abortion to be conducted once a fetal heartbeat has been detected, and allows citizens to bring legal actions against doctors and other businesses that help achieve the abortion," writes The Hill. "This had led to fears that even Uber or Lyft drivers could face prosecution for driving someone to a clinic for an abortion after six weeks."

Jenner, who has been ostracized from her famous reality TV family over her political views, said she does not anticipate any changes to California's abortion law.

When asked how she could support the right to choose and the controversial law in Texas, Jenner answered: "I think that they have the right in their state to do what they want to do.

"Now, do I agree with the decision or not? No. To be honest with you, I actually probably do not agree with the decision," the trans activist went on to say. But I agree that they do have the right to make their own decision."

And there you have at. Jenner, kinda, probably doesn't agree with something that she is publicly supporting.
