Whoopi RAGES at SCOTUS Draft, Claims the 'Child' Choses Abortion Too

May 3rd, 2022 3:27 PM

The View’s response to the leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v. Wade was just as unhinged as one might expect. In addition to Joy Behar claiming “fascism is down the line” for America, Whoopi Goldberg raged out and bizarrely claimed that the person deciding on the abortion was the woman, the doctor, AND the child that would be killed by the procedure.

Things were spicy from the get-go as the open tease of the show warned: “the pillars of American justice are shaking.” The announcer wondered if this was “the end of Abortion rights” and “how will this impact reproductive rights?” It also played a soundbite of Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern (D) claiming the conservative justices “want to turn this country into the Handmaid’s Tale.”

Leading the cast, Goldberg began by trying to calm the fears of their liberal viewers. “This was a draft that they put together sometime earlier in the year,” she said. “This is not the law. And I want to make sure everybody knows that your rights are still in place.”

But Goldberg’s demeanor would drastically shift by the end of their second segment on the draft ruling. By that time, she was yelling and morbidly claiming the child also chooses abortion. “You are not the person to make that decision! My doctor, and myself, and my child, that's who makes the decision,” she exclaimed with a sneer.

And despite the fact The View is staunchly for mask and vaccine mandates, Goldberg invoked opposition to those protocols. “No, it is not the first time, but I will tell you this is my body and nobody, you know, you got people telling me that I’ve to wear a mask or don't wear a mask or do this,” she wigged out.

 

 

But the screaming got worse as she started to snap her fingers angrily at the camera and ranted about how supporters of the draft ruling were “not looking out for me as a human being” (click expand):

This law came about because people wanted people to have somewhere safe and somewhere clean! It has nothing to do with your religion! This is not a religious issue! This is a human issue! If you care about me as a human being, you should know three things! Getting an abortion is not easy! Making that decision is not easy! It's not something people do lightly! [snaps her fingers at the camera] It's not something you can just do! [snaps her fingers at the camera] It is a hard, awful decision that people make!

And if you don't have the wherewithal to start this conversation with “I know how hard this must be for you.” If you're starting it by telling me I'm going to burn in Hell, then you're not looking out for me as a human being whether I subscribe to religion or not! And that is not okay!

How about the little human being killed by abortion?

And in another example of how self-centered Behar is, she recounted how she “ woke up in the middle of the night to pee,” saw the story, and “couldn’t go back to sleep. It’s that devastating.”

After suggesting that conservative Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett lied under oath in their Senate confirmation hearings, Behar claimed they would target “Brown vs. Board of Education” next and warned we have a dystopian future ahead of us. “So, I see fascism down the line here.”

In the second segment on the draft ruling, Sunny Hostin got exceptionally self-righteous as she touted her Catholicism and how “my faith tells me that abortion is wrong … But I don't want to put my beliefs on anyone else.” She also decried how “morally grounded” Justice Samuel Alito’s ruling was. “I don't think that that should ever be in a Supreme Court opinion,” she proclaimed.

But Alito’s reference to the morality of the issue was regarding how each side views itself. So, was it a Freudian slip that their side didn’t really care about morality? That’s not to mention how they always try to claim they have the moral high ground.

In response, Sara Haines cried “separation of church and state” and worried a real ruling “will reduce safe abortions and it will cost lives as a result – more lives.” When questioned if the “more lives” part was a tacit admission that abortion takes lives, Haines told NewsBusters: “Nope, but for those who claim to be pro life [sic], it may reveal which lives matter more.”

 

 

The other side of that coin actually shows how the cast thinks the lives of unborn children are worthless and should be killed if they’re deemed an inconvenience. And for all of Goldberg’s claims that it’s not a decision that’s celebrated, how does she account for the “shout your abortion” movement and the videos online of women throwing parties?

ABC’s The View
May 3, 2022
11:00:25 a.m. Eastern

ANNOUNCER: The end of Abortion rights? The pillars of American justice are shaking over a leaked opinion draft from Supreme Court conservatives making the case to overturn Roe v. Wade. How the left warns they’re waging war on American women.

REP. JIM MCGOVERN (D-MA): They want to turn this country into the Handmaid’s Tale.

ANNOUNCER: While some conservatives hail it as justice that’s long overdue.

LAURA INGRAHAM: Well, a lot of people thought the original Roe opinion was brutal as well given what happened to 50+ million babies.

ANNOUNCER: How will this impact reproductive rights? Is it a ruling most Americans would object to? And who could be behind the leak?

(…)

11:02:35 a.m. Eastern

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: All right. So, we need to start off by saying this. As of this moment a woman's right to have an abortion is still legal in this country. But last night's protests erupted after a majority opinion draft was published by Politico.

This means it was a draft – this was a draft that they put together some time earlier in the year. It is one of the things that they do. They create drafts and stuff so this is not the law yet.

SARA HAINES: It was leaked.

GOLDBERG: This is not the law. And I want to make sure everybody knows that your rights are still in place. Okay?

(…)

11:04:34 a.m. Eastern

JOY BEHAR: I woke up in the middle of the night to pee. And while I was up I see my phone lighting up, people are texting me ‘look what happened here.’ I couldn’t go back to sleep. It’s that devastating.

You know, I’d like to point out that during those hearings, all of these people that are voting to overturn this lied, didn't they lie?

(…)

11:05:57 a.m. Eastern

BEHAR: But it sounds to me that all of them felt that there was precedence set and that they would honor the precedent. And now it’s the complete opposite is happening, not that I’ surprised. You and I were talking before. [Points to Goldberg] We’re not surprised, we saw this coming. I worry is that this is just the beginning, next they’ll go after gay marriage and maybe the board – what is it? Brown vs. Board of Education. They already eroded our voting rights a little bit. So, I see fascism down the line here.

(…)

11:14:40 a.m. Eastern

SUNNY HOSTIN: The problem that I have with this opinion is – and everybody knows I’m Catholic, my faith tells me that abortion is wrong. My faith tells me that, you know, life begins at conception. But I don't want to put my beliefs on anyone else. I think that is wrong. And when I look at this opinion, it was so religiously and morally grounded.

I mean, it starts with saying “abortion presents a profound moral issue in which Americans hold sharply conflicting views. I don't think that that should ever be in a Supreme Court opinion. And I was very disappointed.

SARA HAINES: I think that the beauty of the country was always that separation of church and state. And the reason being, even though it was religious people that came to settle the country, the brilliance of that original Constitution – with all of its imperfections – was that it knew well enough to know that to co-exist, we could not legislate religion.

And the second problem with that – I just forgot – But the other part I’d like to says is this will not in any way stop abortions or reduce abortions. It will reduce safe abortions and it will cost lives as a result – more lives.

(…)

11:16:22 a.m. Eastern

GOLDBERG: No, it is not the first time, but I will tell you this is my body and nobody, you know, you got people telling me that I’ve to wear a mask or don't wear a mask or do this – Everybody wants to tell me what to do, but you won't let me make my decision about my body! You are not the person to make that decision! My doctor, and myself, and my child, that's who makes the decision!

And one of the things I really want to point out before we go is the reason abortion came about. Women in this country lived forever with it being illegal. Okay? Women, when they decide something is not right for them, they're going to take it into their own hands. Well, we got tired of tripping over women in bathrooms, public bathrooms who were giving themselves abortions because there was nowhere safe, nowhere clean, nowhere to go.

This law came about because people wanted people to have somewhere safe and somewhere clean! It has nothing to do with your religion! This is not a religious issue! This is a human issue! If you care about me as a human being, you should know three things! Getting an abortion is not easy! Making that decision is not easy! It's not something people do lightly! [snaps her fingers at the camera] It's not something you can just do! [snaps her fingers at the camera] It is a hard, awful decision that people make!

And if you don't have the wherewithal to start this conversation with “I know how hard this must be for you.” If you're starting it by telling me I'm going to burn in Hell, then you're not looking out for me as a human being whether I subscribe to religion or not! And that is not okay!

We will be right back!
