Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spoke on Monday at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Campaign for Life Gala in Washington, saying that pro-choice liberals are forcing their values on others.
The refusal to conform with those who advocate for the right to kill unborn babies made Nikke Haley a ready target and Whoopi Goldberg, the moderator on ABC’s “The View,” didn’t miss the opportunity to take on the pro-life former Republican governor from South Carolina.
“So let me get this straight, so giving a woman a choice about what to do with her body is anti-feminist?” Whoopi Goldberg said, before repeating what is a common refrain from pro-choice crowd, that “you have the right never to have an abortion.”
“You have that right. And I support that,” she said. “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, with their choices — why are you taking it out of their hands? See to me, you taking choice from people is anti-human.”
See how things work with the left? If you oppose the killing of unborn babies, you are “anti-human.”
The lemmings in the audience cheered Whoopi’s insane argument that a woman has a right NOT to have an abortion, as if some entity is going to force her to do so.
She then falls back on the rare exception to support the right to have an abortion, but was just getting warmed up with her confusing logic.
“I am pro-life,” she continued. “I want everybody who wants to do this to have life. I want everybody who wants to have life. But you can’t just knock it off here. You have to take that life and watch that life grow and help people do what they need to do.”
Good luck in deciphering that.
Whoopi goes on to give a spirited defense of Planned Parenthood, which she claimed was “much more than an abortion clinic,” before saying women are going to have abortions one way or another.
“I don’t say that everybody has to believe, but I say you want to have choice, I don’t want you in my coochie!” she declared, “You don’t want me in yours either.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin rolled out the tired refrain that Republicans are supposed to be about limited government.
“Republicans are supposed to be limited government people, small government people, they don’t want the government deciding about their guns, but they want the government to decide about women’s bodies,” Hostin said.
“It just seems very hypocritical to me,” she added, before referencing Haley. “So you have a former politician speaking about abortion and encouraging the government to regulate women’s bodies. That is the antithesis of what the party is supposed to be about.”
What’s more than obvious is that Haley has touched a few nerves with her perfect explanation on why women shouldn’t be expected to to fall in line with pro-choice forces.
“Women are expected to support choice, simply because we are women. That’s just wrong,” Haley said Monday night. “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.”
“The idea that women must adhere to a particular set of values is one of the most anti-women ideas in today’s culture,” she stated. “The women’s movement is supposed to be about equality and tolerance, but leftist abortion advocates reject that in demanding all women support abortion rights.”
