On Thursday’s edition of The View on ABC, the panel discussed a suburban Pittsburgh restaurant – McDain’s Restaurant & Golf Center in Monroeville – creating a policy to ban children under six from the property. The owner claimed E-mailers have run 11 to 1 in favor of the new ban.
But Joy Behar took this story as an opportunity to pounce on those pro-lifers for only being pro-child until birth: “There seems to be a war against children going on. Except when they’re in utero! Then everyone seems to care!” Here’s how it unfolded:
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: A Pittsburgh-area restaurant announced it’s banning children six years and under from eating at their restaurant after repeated complaints from their older clientele.
S.E. CUPP: People wanted to clap, by the way. They tried to clap. [Applause]
JOY BEHAR:There seems to be a war against children going on. Except when they’re in utero! Then everyone seems to care!
ELISABETH HASSELBECK: Good point.
Good point? At least Cupp made a face. Banning young children from a restaurant is much less of a “war against children” than what abortion “providers” do for a nice living.
Sherri Shepherd said she skipped restaurants for a year when her three-year-old son was misbehaving. Hasselbeck says she drives through the Wendy’s, picks up the food, and then walks into the restaurant to eat, just to avoid non-eating time inside the restaurant.
Then Cupp summed up by joking: “All I want to know is when am I going to go to this restaurant? It sounds amazing. All your kids are fine, I’m sure, but I will eat your young if they get in the middle of my dinner.”
