A guest on ABC’s “The View” joked about Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker getting pregnant.
Actress Kathy Najimy appeared on The View” Friday and was asked about her reaction to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade.
“I mean, at first, probably like you all I was dumbfounded and slightly didn’t believe it,” she responded. “And then I realized that it was real. And I thought, ‘wow.'”
She went on, “You who know I thought of? I’m lucky enough to be friends with Gloria Steinem. And I thought, she’s 88, and we have to fix this. We have to fix this right now.”
Najimy said she never takes off her 1973 necklace or ring, an apparent reference to the year Roe was decided.
“You know, we all… those of us who care about choice and want to fight for a women’s right for how to define her family and what to do with her body…” she continued.
Co-host Ana Navarro interjected, “Herschel Walker apparently cares about it.”
“Yes, exactly,” Najimy joked, adding, “Let’s get him pregnant.”

It is 2022, and we have been told by a Planned Parenthood doctor, “Men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”
So perhaps they should watch what they jokingly wish for.
Her comments come after the Daily Beast reported Walker paid for a girlfriend to get an abortion in 2009. The outlet was reportedly provided a personal check from Walker and a get well card.
Walker, who is running as a pro-life Republican, denied the story in a statement as he claimed it is “another repugnant hatchet job from a democrat activist disguised as a reporter who has obsessively attacked my family and tried to tear me down since this race started.”

“He’s harassed friends of mine, asking if I fathered their children. He’s called my children ‘secret’ because I didn’t want to use them as campaign props in a political campaign. Now they’re using an anonymous source to further slander me,” the statement added.
He later told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt “had that happened, I would have said it, because it’s nothing to be ashamed of there. You know, people have done that, but I know nothing about it. And if I knew about it, I would be honest and talk about it.”
