From the pro-life side, the entire issue of abortion is about “when does an unborn child get their rights as a human being?” And on Thursday’s edition of The View, Whoopi Goldberg proved that the anti-life side of the debate not only refuses to engage in that part of the question, but flat-out doesn’t care what the factual answer is.
As they were nearing the end of their first Hot Topics segment about abortion and the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned, Goldberg (who also proved she didn’t care what the Holocaust was about) raged as self-described conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin got to the heart of the debate and why the pro-life side was so adamant about their position:
GRIFFIN: This is an uncomfortable conversation we have to have. At what point does a baby in the womb have rights separate from a mother?
GOLDBERG: Listen. It doesn’t matter when you think it is. If I don’t think that it is —
GOLDBERG: Listen. I don’t have to tell you.
BEHAR: It’s none of your business.
GOLDBERG: It’s your decision. What you do with your body, and how your family works.
“For me, I don’t care what your religious beliefs are,” Goldberg sneered. But Griffin kept at it and noted: “it’s not even a religion” question but rather “a philosophical debate” that we need to have as a society.
It’s clear that Goldberg doesn’t want to face the truth of the debate. On a previous show, she bitterly defended abortion by saying “Making that decision is not easy! It’s not something people do lightly!” But why is it not easy, Whoopi? It’s because, as humans, we know abortion is taking a life. And in that same rant, she ridiculously claimed the baby also chooses if an abortion takes place.

Earlier in the segment, co-host Joy Behar whined that too many Americans were distracted by pesky things like gas price, inflation, and putting food on the table to care about losing their rights at the hands of evil Republicans:
I think Americans are in denial exactly about what this Republican party is planning to do. They would like to overturn voting rights. They would like to overturn gay rights. (…) They’re in the process of overturning women’s rights. (…) But I really think that Americans are not aware because they’re worried about gas prices understandably. They’re worried about inflation understandably.
“But the larger issue is that we are losing our rights on a regular basis, and I don’t think that Americans get it. I really don’t,” she chided. She was also upset that Americans were too “sympathetic and empathetic” to the rights of Ukrainians rather than their own. Meanwhile, Behar had worried that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would harm her vacation to Italy.
Griffin also showed up co-host Sunny Hostin a little bit. After Hostin cherry-picked a poll saying “64 percent of Americans polled do not want Roe to be overturned,” Griffin shot back by noting a Pew Research poll showing 71 percent want some form of limitation on abortion (a 2022 Knights of Columbus/Marist polls shows similar results).
