‘The View’ attacks Ben Carson over Roe v Wade, abortion, Whoopi Goldberg says they’re ‘fair and balanced’

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson spoke out against abortion and Roe v. Wade during Meet the Press. In response, The View crew aired the clip and attacked Carson as “despicable,” “pathetic,” “completely off”—and the list went on.

In conclusion of the insults and ramblings, Whoopi Goldberg declared at the end of their smear-fest that The View was “always fair and balanced.”

Whoopi first highlighted how Carson “came out strong against abortion” when he spoke with Chuck Todd from Meet the Press.

TODD: “Do you want to see Roe v. Wade overturned?”

CARSON: “Ultimately, I would love to see it overturned.”

TODD: “And that means all abortions illegal, or is there still an exception that you would have?”

CARSON: “I’m a reasonable person and if people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, I’ll listen.”

TODD: “Rape and incest?”

CARSON: “Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way.”

Immediately after the clip, Michelle Collins cried out “despicable” and Joy Behar reacted, “It’s pathetic.”

“Sir, no disrespect, truly no disrespect, but it’s not your call,” Whoopi charged. “You don’t decide – I’m sorry, you don’t decide for anybody’s family here what they are going through and what they need.”

"The View"

“The View”

Collins gleefully chimed in that Carson’s abortion comments proved that “the guy is just completely off.” “I’m almost glad he says it,” she insisted, “because it kind of negates everything else that he has to say.”

Raven-Symone also accused Carson of “not taking into consideration of the emotional standpoint of the woman.”

Behar brought up how Carson has used slavery in comparisons to other topics, including Obamacare, which led her to call him “ridiculous” and full of “hyperbole.”

Back to Whoopi for a rant: “I don’t mind that you feel this is a bad thing. I understand that,” she began. “But don’t you dare tell women who don’t have the choice that many women with money have, because that’s who we’re talking about really … You talk about poor women, honey.”

Behar and Collins also poked fun at Carson for refusing to go on SNL.

“For me, a president who doesn’t have a sense of humor is a washout to me,” Behar insisted. “Because a sense of humor is part of being emotionally intelligent and that’s what he’s missing. “

Collins added, “Can you imagine him on SNL? I mean, good night, Mommy, okay? Put a sleeping hat on. Because that is so snoozy,” she said.

Behar agreed. “SNL is live and this guy is a hologram, okay?”

Whoopi said that, deep down, she liked Carson. She admitted he’s a “marvelous surgeon” and that she “read his book.” She just didn’t agree with him on abortion.

Paula Faris pressed at the end of the discussion, “We’ve also got to respect that not everybody in America believes the same way this panel does.”

“But nobody is saying that,” Whoopi retorted. “I don’t think anybody is saying that.”

Faris didn’t back down. “I feel like we are,” she said. “I feel like we’re very much saying that.”

“I’m just saying we’re not reflecting both sides of the story and regardless of our opinions about it,” Faris reiterated, “I’m just saying that there are a lot of people here, I would imagine, that are pro-life.”

Whoopi reassured, “We’re always fair and balanced, babe.”

    What about the child’s right. Why is the woman not charged with murder?

  2. Melinda says:

    Abortion is a cruel choice that dismembers a child’s body and dismembers the woman soul who makes this choice…no one wins when it comes to abortions. I feel horrible for the women who made this choice and have to live and carry around the pain that comes along with it. I think if the View was a balanced program they would speak out for the consequences of abortions not only pushing their own liberal agenda.

  3. Bill Blair says:

    Whoopi: please hear me out. I truly support your stance that you have the right to do what you want with YOUR body. You can chose to do what you want to do with your body. It is “free will”. Do you have the right to make a decision about someone else’s body?Does an unborn person have a “body”? If yes, do you have the right to make decisions about that body?
