“The View” moderator has delivered a withering minutelong monologue slamming the Supreme Court’s draft ruling which would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

The 66-year-old — who has previously discussed an illegal abortion she had as a teenager — became enraged after broaching the topic on Tuesday’s edition of the women-helmed talk show.

“You got people telling me I gotta wear a mask, or don’t wear a mask, or do this,” Goldberg raged, raising her voice and taking over the conversation from her co-hosts. “Everybody wants to tell me what to do! This is my body!”

“My doctor, and myself, and my child — that’s who makes the decision [about abortion],” the EGOT legend defiantly declared, appearing to hold back tears.

“Women, when they decide something is not right for them, they’re going to take it into their own hands,” she further fumed. “We got tired of tripping over [other] women in public bathrooms who were giving themselves abortions because there was nowhere safe, nowhere clean, nowhere to go.”

Referencing Roe v. Wade, which became the law of the land in 1973, Goldberg stated: “It came about because people wanted people to have somewhere safe and somewhere clean. It has nothing to do about your religion. This is not a religious issue, this is a human issue.”

The daytime star went on to insist that “getting an abortion is not easy.”

“It is a hard, awful decision that people make,” the “Ghost” Oscar winner avowed. “If you don’t have the wherewithal to understand that, to start the conversation with, ‘I know how hard this must be for you,’ if you’re starting it by telling me I’m going to burn in hell, then you’re not looking out for me as a human being, whether I subscribe to your religion or not, and that is not OK.”

Meanwhile, co-host Joy Behar also expressed outrage over the leaked Supreme Court draft, claiming it could be the beginning of “facism.”




“My worry is that this is just the beginning. Next they’ll go after gay marriage and maybe … Brown v. Board of Education. They already eroded our voting rights a little bit. So I see fascism down the line here,” she theorized.
