"Just Because Something Is a Right, Doesn’t Make It Right" Elisabeth Hasselbeck shames Abortion Activists in her Return to The View
She claims the activists are actively “getting caught in the law” too much rather than adhering to “religious guidelines.”
As she returned to The View today, Elisabeth Hasselbeck took the majority of the show shaming those advocating for abortion rights and criticizing women who get abortions. She claims the activists are actively “getting caught in the law” too much rather than adhering to “religious guidelines.”
Just a day after Kansas voters rejected the attempt of the state’s government to remove a woman’s right to an abortion from the state constitution, the conversation about abortion resurfaced. The rest of the show’s panel celebrated the events in Kansas, while Elisabeth Hasselbeck shamed those working to advocate for abortion rights. The largest issue brought up by Hasselbeck was her religious beliefs. She stated, “abortion is wrong according to God.” However, she made it clear that she doesn’t push or force her religion onto people.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck continued her argument around the basic concept that women are focusing on the legal side of abortions rather than the moral side. She said, “I think oftentimes we get caught in the ‘right’ legislatively. Like, we’re getting caught in the law. Just because something is right, doesn’t make it right.” On top of this, Hasselbeck suggested women look for agencies that will get the child adopted. In response, Joy Behar cited a statistic of “there are 117,000 children waiting to be adopted right now, so it’s not such a snap thing.”
Elisabeth Hasselbeck has claimed the foster child system is flawed mainly due to the government. She said, “There are non-profits that are actually doing the good work. They’re out there, I promise you.” Whoopi Goldberg indicated that we must all find the solution that is right for an individual’s specific situation. Goldberg continued, “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.”
