“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg has lashed out at Judge Clarence Thomas following the landmark Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
After Friday’s stunning reversal of a roughly 50-year-old precedent that protected abortions at the federal level, the ladies of ABC’s daytime show took turns trashing the Supreme Court’s ruling while broadcasting from the Bahamas.
“I want to be very clear – I’m very pro-life. I’ve never been anti-life. I want people to have the life they want but I don’t want to force anyone – I don’t want anybody comes to my house and tells me how to raise my daughter and what she needs because they don’t know,” Goldberg said Monday.

Goldberg told the audience that she “appreciates” everyone’s religion but “I don’t subscribe to your religion” and “I don’t ask you to subscribe to mine.”
“And you have no right, based on your religious beliefs, to tell me – because what’s the next step? As Clarence Thomas points out, they would like to get rid of contraception. Do you understand, sir? No – because you don’t have to use it!” Goldberg reprimanded Justice.

The host alluded to Thomas’ concurring opinion, in which he wrote that the Supreme Court “should reconsider all substantive due process precedents of this Court, including Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell” regarding the past privacy rulings on things like contraception and same-sex marriage.
Judge Samuel Alito pointed out in last week’s majority opinion that the overturning of Roe v. Wade would not affect any other rights since the issue of abortion specifically involves a third party.
“He better hope that…because we weren’t in the Constitution either. We weren’t even people in the Constitution,” Goldberg said. “Well, you better hope they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say you shouldn’t be married to your wife, who happens to be white, because they’re going to move that.”

“And you better hope nobody says, you know, ‘Well, you’re not in the Constitution. You’ve gone back to being a quarter of a person’ because that’s not going to work either,” said added Goldberg.
