Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley clapped back at “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg after she made disparaging comments about the pro-life movement.
As IJR previously reported, Haley spoke about her support for the pro-life movement during a speech at the Susan B. Anthony List’s pro-life gala.
During her speech, Haley noted that she doesn’t see the pro-life movement as advocating against abortion; rather, it is advocating for the right to life for all babies. She claimed that the pro-life position isn’t anti-women.
“Unfortunately, many on the left use the abortion debate to divide women and demand conformity,” Haley told the crowd. “They do this in the name of feminism. But that is not real feminism.”
Haley’s comments rubbed the supposed feminist of “The View” the wrong way.
During Tuesday’s show, Goldberg said the pro-life movement is actually anti-human because it opposes access to abortion.
Watch Goldberg’s comments:
“So let me get this straight. So giving a women a choice about what to do with her body is anti-feminist because she — OK, look, here I say it all the time. You have the right never to have an abortion. You have that right. And I support that. But what about the 9-year-old girl who gets raped by a family member or some thug in the street? 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, to me, you taking choice from people is anti-human. So I don’t understand.”
“Now, again, I don’t say that everybody has to believe, but I say you want to have choice,” she added. “I don’t want you in my coochie. You don’t want me in yours, either.”
Haley didn’t take the attacks on the pro-life movement sitting down. She took to Twitter and offered to let people hear both arguments and decide for themselves what position had a solid foundation.
