A new profile on Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, suggests she harbors mixed views on the issue of abortion, though she was a keynote speaker at the annual March for Life event in January.

New York magazine on Saturday published an extensive interview with Conway in which she said she's "sympathetic" to women who choose to have an abortion.

"Do I know anybody who ever got an abortion? Well, of course I do," she said. I've driven them there. I've helped pay. You know, when you're young, you're thinking about the person, not the issue."

She added: "We were younger, and I was focused on her, not on the larger public policy."

President Trump has switched positions on the abortion matter over the years but campaigned as an anti-abortion Republican and has called on Planned Parenthood to stop providing them.

In the interview, Conway said she wanted to see American culture shift more toward an anti-abortion position.

"One goal," she said, is "to make us culturally — not politically — culturally more sensitive to the value of life."
