Openly Conservative and outspoken ‘The View’ presenter Elisabeth Hasselbeck, has often expressed her archaic views about being anti-gay and other controversial issues such as abortion and other problems affecting minority groups. But she has recently expressed her support for gay marriage, news that would come as much of a shock to her fans as well as her opposers.

Hasselbeck recently caused controversy on the show after insinuating that women turned towards a lesbian lifestyle because they are bored in later life and long for affection. Many LGBT groups and well know lesbians were left angry by the comments made.

Since then Republican mother, 33, has come out in support of gay marriage and defending her views as not ultra conservative, saying: "I am not ultra-ultra-conservative on every issue. I actually support gay marriage. I think the gay marriage thing would definitely surprise people. I mean, for some people, it will surprise them to the point that they won’t want to hear it. 'No, that can’t be, I really want to have this sort of idea of her in my head,' so I sort of rain on their parade there.

She adds about abortion: "I am a person that does believe that life begins at conception, but I also don’t believe that the government should tell women what to do with their bodies. So I’m torn there in terms of supporting laws [for or against abortion]. I always say I would rather change a heart than a law. I think it has to start there. Always trying to mandate, mandate, mandate this or that is not the way that I believe this country should run."
