Stacey Abrams said Sunday that due to her faith she was pro-life until college changed her perception.

The Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate told CNN's State of the Union program that she now views it that her faith should not allow her to impose value systems on others.

'I have thought about my faith a great deal,' Abrams said in the Sunday morning interview when asked about how her belief system affects her view on abortion.

'In fact,' she continues, 'I was anti-abortion until I went to college. And, there, I met a friend who has my shared faith values, but we started having conversations about what reproductive care and abortion care really is.'

She said college gave her a 'different perspective' on abortion and what role the legislature should play in health care.

'This is health care,' she insisted. 'This is about a woman's right to control her body. This is about a woman's right to experience and determine her future. And that, for me, as a matter of faith, means that I don't impose those value systems on others.'
