The ABC talk show “The View” descended into chaos once again on Wednesday morning when co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, who are usually aligned in their radically liberal views, got into a heated exchange over men and abortion.

Goldberg And Behar Go At It On ‘The View’
Things quickly went off the rails during a segment in which the women of “The View” discussed Britney Spears’ recent claim that she got an abortion twenty years ago during her time dating her fellow singer Justin Timberlake from 1999-2002. Spears alleged in her new memoir “The Woman In Me,” which came out yesterday, that Timberlake pressured her into getting the abortion even though she had wanted to have the baby.
The conversation on “The View” quickly shifted to one about whether or not men should have a say in a woman’s choice when it comes to abortion, with Behar saying that a woman shouldn’t even need to inform a man that she is pregnant with his child.
“When they get pregnant and start getting bloated and retaining, then they can make the decision,” said Behar, 81. “In the meantime, I’m the one who has to pop this kid out, go through nine months of a pregnancy, possibly be nauseous for three months, whatever is involved. And then take care of the kid! It’s her decision, in my opinion.”
Jane Fonda just went on the View and said Pro-Life politicians need to be “murdered” because of their views on abortion.

Goldberg Chimes In

Goldberg, 68, then chimed in to give her own “suggestion.”
“You know, if they put as much onus on how men treat their own bodies — because the swimmers, we carry eggs. They carry the swimmers,” she said. “I kind of feel like, they need to put the same onus on abortion for men as they do for women, and let’s see how deep it’s going to be, because if you tell a man, ‘No, you can’t take care of yourself,’ I wonder how many of them are going to listen.”
“But we don’t tell them what to do with their prostate,” Behar fired back, with Goldberg immediately cutting her off to say, “No, no, you’re missing the point.”
“What is the point?” a confused Behar said.
“The point is, if men cannot take care of themselves in the way that men do—” Goldberg tried to reply before Behar interrupted her to bluntly exclaim “wear a condom!”
“No,” a visibly annoyed Goldberg said in response. “Listen, we’ll be right back. I’ll explain.”
However, Goldberg never did explain, as the show moved on to other topics when it returned to commercial. Check out the bizarre exchange in the video below.

This came after Spears blamed Timberlake for pressuring her into getting an abortion.
“It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated,” Spears wrote, according to People Magazine. “But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”
“I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby,” she continued. “I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
Spears regrets getting the abortion to this day.
“To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life,” she admitted.

While Spears’ abortion is an undeniable tragedy, we’re glad to see that her going public about it appears to have led to two radical liberals like Goldberg and Behar having a nonsensical argument on live television. In the end, all Goldberg and Behar accomplished was showing the world how ignorant they each really are about the issue of abortion.
