“White guys” are under fire, this time from failed comedienne Joy Behar of ‘The View’ television show.
Outrage over abortion bans and restrictions in select states has been widespread and the View is no exception. Speaking about the most recently passed law in Alabama, Joy Behar derided the men who voted for the measure and suggested they all receive mandatory vasectomies.
The remarks came about when Behar and her colleagues were discussing new abortion laws in several states. Graphics shared specifically referred to Alabama, one of several states opting for more protections for the unborn this month. Governor Kay Ivey signed new legislation that outlawed most abortion procedures in the state, including those done late in pregnancy. The new law allows for abortions when the pregnancy threatens the health of the mother, but outlaws most other procedures. It targets doctors who perform abortions that are based on convenience or preference. Termination for any reason other than health risks could result in criminal charges.
Alabama is one of several states passing laws that prohibit or significantly reduce access to abortions for convenience or preferences. The state was prominently featured on many programs, including The View.
The segment features a clip of the legislators who voted for the new law, which triggered Joy Behar, who commented:
“Can we look at a picture of the panel of men who did this? There it is. Gee, what do they have in common? They’re all men, all white guys.”
She overlooked the female Governor, Kay Ivey and the many women in the state who voted for this and other pro life agendas in the most recent elections. People of color were also dismissed as she targeted the white men who voted on the proposal. Behar went further than simply pointing out the race of some elected policy makers.
“Maybe we should make it a law that they should all be required to get a vasectomy, that group in particular,” she said.
Equating the targeting of a specific gender and race for forced sterilization is very different from protecting the unborn and fulfilling campaign promises. But bot for Behar and her co-stars, who agreed. She concluded by stating that forced vasectomies would “solve the problem”.
Other states are joining the fight against barbaric abortion procedures, including those done late in pregnancy when the child could live if born, and those that are used to dispose of babies with Down’s Syndrome and other disabilities. Other states that are placing more limits on abortion include Ohio, North Dakota, Mississippi and Georgia. Alabama’s latest step is the most restrictive law so far. Other states, including Louisiana have stricter abortion laws on the docket and experts predict the fight over new legislation will be heading to the Supreme Court soon.
