Share

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg is suggesting that conservatives may try to overturn the decision that struck down laws banning interracial marriage.

During a segment on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Goldberg said, “I’m very pro-life. I’ve never been anti-life. I want people to have the lives they want.”

She added, “But I don’t want to force anybody — I don’t want anybody coming in my house telling me how to raise my daughter and what she needs.”

“Because what’s next?” she asked.

Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in to suggest that decisions on contraception and same-sex marriage could be overturned.

“We were not in the Constitution either,” Goldberg said apparently in reference to Black people. “We were not even people in the Constitution.”

She then appeared to suggest that interracial marriage might be at risk too and sent a message to Justice Clarence Thomas.”

“You better hope they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say that you should not be married to your wife who happens to be wife,” Goldberg said.

She added, “You better hope that nobody says well, you know, you’re not in the Constitution, you’re back to being a quarter of a person. Cause that’s not going to work either.”

Do you think other rights are at risk now?

The segment comes after the Supreme Court overturned Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, as IJR reported.

On Friday, the court announced its decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health abortion case.

The opinion, penned by Justice Samuel Alito, stated, “Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.”

“Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” it added.

Since a draft of the opinion was leaked in May, several Democrats have argued that other rights could be a risk.

However, Alito argued in the opinion that Roe is “sharply” distinguished from other cases because it “destroys what those decisions call ‘potential life.'”

He also said the Dobbs decision “does not undermine them in any way.”
