“The Five” got heated on Wednesday while discussing the Supreme Court potentially preparing to overturn the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade with Geraldo Rivera invoking coat-hanger abortions in response to co-host Greg Gutfeld’s blunt assessment of pro-choice advocates.

The discussion was a result of an unprecedented leak of a draft opinion by the Supreme Court to Politico indicating that it may be on the brink of overturning the case which would then hand the issue of the legality of abortions back to the individual states rather than addressing it at a federal level. The opinion was verified as being written by Justice Samuel Alito. Justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Neil Gorsuch all concurred. The final decision is reportedly slated to be handed down in June.

Rivera angrily spoke for the pro-choice side of the argument, flatly calling the conservative justices who voted to overturn the case liars. He gave the left’s argument of “my body, my choice,” rather than the right to life.

“What this shows is that the Senate confirmation process by which a nominee is interrogated by both parties and give their reasons why they are fit to be on the high court, is absolutely deeply flawed,” he declared.

“Why? Because these nominees lied. They go before the Senate of the United States, they swear that they are going to be judicious and good shepherds of the court and its impartiality in the importance it has in the American society and that the stare decisis says that the precedent of these cases is well established,” Geraldo contended.

Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett noted during their confirmation hearings that Roe is established precedent, but they did not say how they would rule concerning the case if it was challenged.

Then, Rivera referred to his three daughters to make his argument. They live in Ohio where the governor has said he will implement a “fetal heartbeat” bill if the case is overturned.

“What am I going to tell my daughters now?” he asked. “That they don’t have control over their body? That they can’t make those choices for themselves?”

“You ask somebody why they’re pro-life, they will say because abortion takes a life and we believe life is sacred,” Gutfeld responded. “You could disagree with that, but you can’t disagree with the simplicity of it. But the problem with the pro-choicers is they do not have the balls to state their case plainly. Like I prefer freedom over fetuses. Don’t sit here and come up with all these other things like it’s going to be interracial marriage next.”

“My body, my choice. How much simpler could you get?” Rivera snapped at him.

“Let me finish,” Gutfeld interjected. “You already did your ad hominem.”

“We talked about this, people are more concerned about what they lose than what they will gain,” he continued.

“Ad hominem? It was not,” Rivera angrily clapped back.

“You insulted a few people there,” Gutfeld commented.

“The issue here is that people need to imagine, right? They can’t step back and see how pro-choice arguments are driven by refusal to imagine what that baby could be,” he continued. “But then when that baby bees, then suddenly it changes, right? And they have to create reasons, they have to create all of these reasons to be pro-choice. Rather than just be honest and say, ‘Yeah, it kills an unborn kid, but I prefer my freedom.’ That’s all you gotta say. You’ll get so much more respect.”

“The other thing that drives me crazy, now that I’m on my soapbox, is it used to be even the pro-choicers would admit that abortion was an ugly thing,” Gutfeld added. “But they felt it had to be a necessary evil, something that would be safe and rare. That was the argument you always heard. But now when you go anywhere on social media, it’s something to celebrate, to cherish, right?”

“Oh, that’s baloney. That’s baloney,” Rivera interrupted.

“I’ll give you evidence,” Gutfeld replied.

“Cherish the wire hanger stuck up their privates trying to get–” Rivera vilely responded.

“The unborn child becomes–,” Gutfeld started to answer as everyone began talking over one another.

“This is exactly what I expected,” Gutfeld remarked.

“You are arrogant,” Rivera sneered.

“Go for it, Geraldo. Come on, keep going. You’re making a fool of yourself,” Gutfeld told the leftist co-host.

“You know something, you insulting punk?” Rivera barked at Gutfeld letting his anger once again surface.

“Hah! Oh, am I your new Bongino?” Gutfeld said mocking Rivera over his long-standing feud with Fox News host Dan Bongino.

“If you want that role,” Rivera offered.

Co-host Dana Perino ended the exchange before it could get even uglier.
