The co-hosts of “The View” weighed in after the Alabama Senate passed a near-total ban on abortions.
Wednesday’s show began with the controversial conversation, and co-host Joy Behar pointed out that the majority who voted in favor of the law all had something in common. “They’re all men. All white guys,” she said. “Maybe we should make it a law that they should all be required to get a vasectomy, that group in particular,” the panelist said.
But Whoopi Goldberg used the platform to remind viewers of what it was like before women had access to legal abortions.
“People don’t remember that one of the reasons it became legal is so it could be done cleanly and you could go some place that wasn’t a back alley,” she said. “Women were being found in bathrooms, women were being found in apartments that had been abandoned. When a woman decides that she cannot do this, she does what she needs to do,” she continued.
Goldberg didn’t stop there, adding “she drank Drano, she drank Tide with tea and coffee, all kinds of stuff, throw themselves down stairs. In order to stem that they made this legal so that you could go to someplace where you didn’t have that outcome,” said the co-host.
