On Abortion: Allow abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy

Castro is a Roman Catholic who supports legal abortion access and gay rights.

Castro has long supported same-sex marriage, serving as Grand Marshal of the 2009 San Antonio Gay Pride parade. In 2017, he tweeted that the military should allow Americans of all gender identities to serve in the military.
