First Barry Manilow, Now Whoopi Goldberg Hassle The View's Hasselbeck over Conservative/Pro-Life Views

Goldberg, who is said to have had at least 6 abortions, says, "Americans ought to 'revere' women, who have had abortions

By Peter J. Smith
Elizabeth Hasselbeck NEW YORK, October 4, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Once again the pro-life views of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the only conservative woman on ABC's "The View," have landed her in trouble after a heated exchange with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell's replacement, on Wednesday's program edition.

Hasselbeck noted her opinion that presidential Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's proposal to give $5,000 for a new birth could help reduce abortions in the United States.

"I feel like this could maybe cause less abortions in the world. You know, people would keep having kids instead."

Goldberg then took the opportunity to attack Hasselbeck's pro-life views by asking her if she had ever been in a position to abort a child. Hasselbeck responded "never."

Goldberg then said, "Okay, then back off a little bit. Back off a little bit. Very few people want to have abortions." Goldberg's "very few people", however, have aborted nearly 50 million children since Roe v. Wade legalized it in 1973. According to one Goldberg biographer, Goldberg has had at least 6 abortions and used to joke perversely that she had a do-it-yourself coathanger abortion at 14 years-old.

Goldberg then lectured Hasselbeck that Americans ought to "revere" women, who have had abortions.

"It is the hardest decision that a woman ever- wait- ever has to make. So, when you talk about it, a little bit of reverence to the women out there who have had to make this horrible decision," Goldberg continued. Goldberg then repeated the standard pro-abortion harangue that Roe was meant to make abortion "safe" and "clean," because women were dying from coathanger abortions.

Hasselbeck, unfortunately being the only pro-life and conservative out of the four women on The View, has been repeatedly castigated for her opinion, most notably by fired "View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell. Earlier in September, Barry Manilow had refused to appear on ABC's "The View," because the show's producers refused to remove Hasselbeck from the segment.

Manilow called Hasselbeck "dangerous" and "offensive" for her "views" and said that while he was "a big supporter of the show," he was canceling his appearance because he felt "I cannot compromise my beliefs."

I'm sorry, I'm a pretty open-minded person, and I have sympathy for women who are conditioned to believe abortion is a good thing in any way, but this statement has me wondering about Goldberg's mental health. I mean, more than I was before.

Let's pretend having an abortion is the same as any other kind of surgery--removing a tooth or open-heart surgery--why would one have "reverence" for someone who has surgery?

Of course, it's not the same--so why have "reverence" for someone who snuffs out a completely defenseless life--even if one claims it's only "potential" life, how is destroying that an action that demands reverence?

How does someone so inept in the use of the English language land a spot on a talk show?

Barry “manliness-is-low” Manilow. His manliness is lower than Whoopi’s.

Well I geuss Goldberg has killed 4 fewer people than OJ is accused of killing.

Shows how liberals really can't debate these issues.

And Sean Hannity actually liked this person. She's killed 6 babies. That's nothing to be proud of.

Manilow, Goldberg, Waxman...I’m beginning to think there is a direct relationship between nostril-size and liberalness.

Elizabeth is a decent person. It’s worth noting that when Hillary appeared on the show that Elizabeth was the first person to greet her.

Ah yes....the “tolerant”, “progressive” Liberals...

Liberals again proving that Liberalism is a mental disorder...

It would appear that most of the Left is made up from the leaches, perverts, incompetent, drug addicts and immoral garbage of society......and they’re UGLY TOO!

Personally, I’m conflicted about Whoopie having 6 abortions.... in some cases that could be a good thing..

And each one was the “hardest decision she’s ever had to make.”

See how nasty Whoopie is. Shaking my head. I guess she couldn't figure out birth control or maybe it just doesn't matter to her. At least 6 abortions & she is ok with this? Rosie disgusts me & so does Whoopie.

Manilow is a twerp. He had good music but has sold out to the devil.

Barry you’ve lost it, find the Lord because without him, your destination is very terminal.

At the risk of being perceived as a cynic or worse, I’ll wade out there and comment that it is difficult to believe that that ugly skank has even had carnal knowledge with another human being a single time.

Unbelievable!
