Whoopi Goldberg gave her two cents supporting abortion on “The View,” that got the audience applauding, regarding former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s comment -- being pro-abortion is “not real feminism.”


During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg lashed out on former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for her pro-choice stance regarding the abortion debate.

Goldberg ranted about Haley’s speech asking if allowing a woman to choose about something involving her body is anti-feminist.

Standing her ground, the co-host said that everyone has the right not to have an abortion, yet made a point by including the different circumstances that may surface in a case regarding abortion.


“But what about the nine-year-old girl who gets raped by a family member or some thug in the street?” said the co-host. “Why are you taking her mother’s discussion with her family, what their choice is? Why are you taking it out of their hands? See, you taking choice away from people is anti-human.”


Goldberg added that removing abortion clinics will not stop women from choosing otherwise as their decision, once final, will be done regardless. Hence, shutting down clinics will only create an avenue for unsafe means of abortion.


The issue came a day after Haley spoke about liberal activists and defied “real feminism” as not being pro-abortion at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Life Gala. She said:

"Women are expected to support choice simply because we're women. That's just wrong. We all have to be true to ourselves and to others. Unfortunately, many on the left use the abortion debate to divide women and demand conformity. They do this in the name of feminism. But that is not real feminism."

Tuesday’s episode was not the first to air the issue on abortion. Late last month, Goldberg also expressed her sentiments to co-host Meghan McCain in a heated debate. McCain stated her belief that abortion is murder while Goldberg raised that not everyone has the same view.
