Former “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck pushed back last week against the show hosts’ pro-abortion claims, saying abortion is “the death penalty to an innocent life.”
Hasselbeck, a pro-life Christian, responded after host/actress Whoopi Goldberg claimed God made women “smart enough” to choose to abort their unborn babies.
“God made us smart enough to know when it wasn’t going to work for us. That’s the beauty of giving us freedom of choice,” Goldberg told the audience.
Hasselbeck quickly reminded the host that God also created babies in the womb, according to Movieguide.
“What about the life in the womb?” she asked. “That life has a plan and a purpose designed by God. I don’t believe there’s any circumstance where we should give the death penalty to an innocent life.”

Abortions have killed more than 63 million unborn babies in America in the past 50 years, and hundreds of thousands of unborn babies continue to be aborted every year.
Hasselbeck said Goldberg and other hosts on “The View” frequently fail to mention that pregnant women in difficult situations have options that do not involve ending their unborn baby’s life.
“There are thousands of agencies that wrap around women that might not be able to care for the baby once born or may not want the baby when they’re pregnant or maybe it was unexpected and they’re in a hard situation, but that will come around at no cost and wrap around you,” Hasselbeck said.
She encouraged pregnant mothers to consider adoption if they cannot care for their children themselves, and bless an adoptive family “who may have suffered miscarriage after miscarriage who want to care for the baby.”
“That option is real, and it’s out there,” Hasselbeck continued. “And I don’t believe they’re giving women half the information out there. And I think those lives have a precious value on them.”
Goldberg responded by asserting that she is “pro-life” even though she supports abortion.
“Before we go, let me just point out: No one at this table is not pro-life,” Goldberg said. “Nobody at this table is not pro-life. I just want to make sure we all know that. Nobody is happy about going to get an abortion.”
But Hasselbeck told her that supporting abortion is “not pro-life.”
