(Slay News) – Controversial co-host of “The View” Whoopi Goldberg has described nonviable unborn children as a “toxic thing” inside a mother’s womb.
During a podcast interview with disgraced former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, Goldberg also denied that fetal heartbeats can be detected at six weeks.
She made the comments while blasting the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision, claiming that the ruling has forced mothers to carry a “toxic thing” inside them.
Goldberg used the words “toxic thing” to describe an unborn human life while making reference to nonviable pregnancies that might also threaten the health of the mother.
During her Tuesday evening interview on “The Chris Cuomo Project” podcast, the two liberals talked about the state of politics in the United States and how divided people in the country are.
Goldberg made several divisive references to pro-life conservatives and pushed false claims about how they want to use their religion to control women’s bodies during the hour-long interview.
However, her worst comments on the subject involved dehumanizing unborn children.
Goldberg started by mentioning that her political opponents “hate” her for her views.
“People make their decisions about why they hate your guts,” she said.
“People hate my guts – they say, ‘You’re always talking about the negative aspect of stuff.’”
She claimed that the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade has prompted much of negative views lately.
She claimed, “Well you know, I think it is negative that you changed a law that’s 50 years old that you didn’t do enough homework about to see what the consequences were gonna be for women.”
She hammered home this idea that the Supreme Court Justices who decided Dobbs were not considerate enough in their judgment.
“Not just black women, or Asian women or Hispanic women – just women in general!
“You changed the law without even saying, without even having the information of what that means for someone who has a, uh, difficulty in the pregnancy that requires that they not keep this toxic thing in.”
She then blasted those who recognize a fetal heartbeat early on in pregnancy, saying, “And you think because there’s a heartbeat – you think there’s a heartbeat – you’re not thinking about, ‘Is the child viable? Does the child have a brain and hands and arms.’”
She continued, claiming that pro-lifers’ efforts to humanize the unborn baby ignore the suffering of underage girls who may get pregnant.
“You’re not thinking about how did this little girl get pregnant,” she said.
“You’ve made no space.
“And to me, the fact that you didn’t even have the courtesy to sit down with a doctor and say, ‘What are the various things that this entails?’
“Now we’re trying to figure out what to do.”
Goldberg has been railing against the Dobbs decision ever since it happened in late June.
While co-hosting “The View,” she has slammed conservatives for trying to take away women’s rights by promoting the end of Roe v. Wade and various states’ abortion restrictions.
In August, she implied that God supports abortion because He has given humanity free will to choose the procedure.
