(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Whoopi Goldberg said Monday that the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Roe v. Wade, a significant abortion case, violated her right to freedom of religion.
In her remarks on Monday’s episode of “The View,” an ABC noon talk show, Goldberg claimed that because the Supreme Court had overruled Roe as a result of its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, she was now being forced to practice another person’s religion.
The discussion began when Vice President Kamala Harris asserted that the Court had transformed into an “activist court” due to the decision to reverse Roe in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.
I don’t understand the link between views and the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Yes, you are free to disagree with our opinions. Our members are excellent at critiquing certain viewpoints. However, questioning the validity of the court should not be done only because some people disagree.
Then Goldberg chimed in, saying that she didn’t think it should be a matter of “opinion” because the Roe decision impacted women’s right to have abortions.
“Like, can someone’s rights be a matter of opinion?” she quipped.
She said she thinks John Roberts is being a little bit disingenuous. Yes, America has made some difficult choices, such as allowing gay people to marry and allowing black children to attend the same schools as white children. “There are numerous decisions that have caused people to panic,” she remarked.
Goldberg continued by saying that restrictions on abortion rights were based more on religion than the law.
She said that’s not how we, from what she remembers, are meant to be doing things. She said she might be mistaken but doesn’t recall thinking she wasn’t permitted to be who she is.
“You choose to be an American because you are allowed to be whoever you want to be and are not required to seek the approval of others,” she declared.
“Now, this has become about my religious freedom to ensure that you follow my religion. I don’t know that that’s — I don’t know that he’s (Roberts) — the idea that he’s pretending he doesn’t know what’s going on is surprising to me,” Goldberg concluded.
