Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” discussed the topic of abortion.
Whoopi argued that God supports killing unborn babies via abortion because God gives people the “freedom of choice.”
Whoopi said, “And as you know, God doesn’t make mistakes. God made us smart enough to know when it wasn’t going to work for us.”
“That’s the beauty of giving us freedom of choice,” she continued.
Guest co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is pro-life, responded to Whoopi by repeatedly saying, “No.”
Whoopi went on to say, “Yes because I know my relationship. You know, my relationship is always choppy.”
“It’s always choppy with God, always, because I have a lot of questions,” Goldberg stated. “I also know God.”
“Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you,” she said. “I will not make that decision for anybody.”
Goldberg says "God doesn't make mistakes" and thus it's in his plan to have women choose abortion."God made us smart enough to know when it wasn't going to work for us. That's the beauty of giving us freedom of choice."

“What about the life in the womb?” Hasselbeck asked. “You know, I will say this, that life has a plan and a purpose designed by God, I don’t believe there are any circumstances where we should give [inaudible].”
“I love that you feel that way. It’s great,” Goldberg responded. “Listen, I don’t ever think that I can make any decision for you and your family that you are not smart enough to make for yourself. And God knows my heart. And God knows most everybody’s heart. And again, before we go, let me just point out, no one, no one at this table is not pro-life. Nobody at this table is not pro-life. I just want to make sure we all know that. Nobody is happy about going to get an abortion. It’s not fun.”
“That’s not pro-life,” Hasselbeck responded. “It’s a hard, hard decision. Life has a plan and a purpose and there are agencies out there that will help you keep that baby alive.”
“The View” was forced to apologize last week to Turning Point USA (TPUSA) after falsely claiming that neo-Nazis had been allowed into the previous weekend’s Student Action Summit hosted by the organization
Last week, as the hosts wrapped up the first segment of Wednesday’s broadcast, Goldberg brought the conversation to a halt so that co-host Sara Haines could read a legal note ahead of the commercial break.
“On Monday we talked about the fact there were openly neo-Nazi demonstrators outside the Florida Student Action Summit of the Turning Point USA group,” Haines read. “We want to make clear these demonstrators were gathered outside the event and that they were not invited or endorsed by Turning Point USA.”
“A Turning Point USA spokesman said the group 100% condemns those ideologies and said Turning Point USA security tried to remove the neo-Nazis from the area, but could not because they were on public property. Also Turning Point USA wanted to clarify — wanted us to clarify this was a Turning Point USA summit and not a Republican Party event. So we apologize for anything we said that may have been unclear on these points.”
