Whoopi Goldberg says God would support abortion rights during fiery TV debate
Whoopi Goldberg proclaimed that “God doesn’t make mistakes” as a pro-choice abortion argument with conservative TV personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
During Wednesday’s (3 August) episode of US talk show The View, Goldberg hit back against Hasselbeck’s religious anti-abortion view with her own take on God.
The debate came after Kansas voted to keep abortion legal, stopping lawmakers from severely restricting abortion rights in the state. This prompted a new wave of outrage among anti-abortion campaigners.
During the show Hasselback said: “I believe our creator assigns value to life and that those lives have a plan and purpose for them designed by god that are not limited to the circumstances of conception nor the situations they are born into.”
