WATCH: Ben Carson Calls Abortion 'Child Sacrifice,' Says We're No Better Than Ancient Heathens

Ben Carson is holding no punches on the abortion interview.

In an interview with DoveTV's Perry Atkinson, Carson was asked what he thought about the hot-button issue—specifically, if solving it would solve the rest of America's spiritual problems to an extent.

"It's interesting that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations 'heathen' because of child sacrifice. But aren't we actually guilty of the same thing?" Carson replied.

Carson has fallen into some heat for supporting pro-choice Oregon Republican Monica Wehby in her bid for U.S. Senate. According to reports, Carson personally inquired Wehby about her stance, and was told that she, although "personally" pro-life, felt in light of her constituents that government should not involve itself in private medical decisions regarding abortion.

Carson repudiated Wehby's justification in a post on his website, writing, "I feel differently, because if abolitionists had taken a similar hands-off approach, I might not have been free to write this column." Later in his column, however, he explained his support for Wehby on a more pragmatic basis.
