Co-hosts on “The View ” slammed those opposed to birth control coverage in health insurance as being no different than the Taliban.
Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated debate with the show’s panel on Thursday while discussing the Trump administration’s plan to repeal the ObamaCare requirement that health insurance plans provided by employers must include birth control.
Goldberg asked if repealing the mandate was like “imposing your beliefs on your workers,” setting off an intense discourse on how the move to roll back the birth control mandate was like Sharia law requirements.
“How about this? Do what you need to do for your family. Let me do what I need to do for mine, and we’ll all be fine. I don’t understand,” Goldberg said to audience applause.
“They don’t mind their own business,” Behar jumped in, adding “It’s religion.”
“Yeah but you can’t hide behind religion, restrict other people’s rights,” co-host Jedediah Bila chimed in.
“That’s done all the time. We saw it when we said, we can’t have gay people adopting so we are going to stop it,” Goldberg said.
“How is it different from the Taliban? I’d like to know,” Behar asked, referring to the extremist Islamic movement that ruled Afghanistan.
“With all these rollbacks and what we hear, what’s the difference between us and the people we’re fighting?” Goldberg asked, to which Behar responded, “Nothing.”
She went on to argue that leaders act this way to “keep women down” and “in their place—barefoot and pregnant.”
Fox News Channel’s Jesse Waters reacted to the segment by noting that “The View” does not provide real political analysis, but only throw words like “Taliban” into a “word salad” that is cheered by their audience. Waters and his co-hosts on “The Five” gave a “heads up” on what it’s really like to live under Islamic law.
“They’re making these kind of comparisons, and likening it to the Taliban just goes to show you the outrageous nature of their claims,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said, adding that it was “so irresponsible.”
