WASHINGTON D.C. – Ben Carson says he would "love" to see abortion almost completely illegal.

As for a woman's right to make choices for her own body, Carson said this on Sunday morning TV:

“During slavery, a lot of the slave owners though they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave … and what if the abolitionists had said, 'you know I don't believe in slavery. I think it’s wrong. But you guys do whatever you want to do.”

Add that to Carson's list of controversial comments, like when he called President Obama a "psychopath,' said being gay is a choice because people "go into prison straight" and come out gay, and argued he wouldn't support a Muslim for president.

Carson now leads the GOP raise in Iowa.
