Thursday, ABC’s “The View” host Joy Behar suggested the men who voted for the Anti-Abortion laws in Alabama should be sterilized as punishment.
Conservative Tribune reported that a new raft of abortion laws that either seek to codify or challenge Roe v. Wade have gotten pretty extreme reactions.
One of them was certainly from Joy Behar of “The View,” who said that the proper response to such legislation was to sterilize all white men.
Because clearly, that has no echoes of some of the uglier episodes of our country’s history.
Behar’s hot take came on the Wednesday edition of the program, which dealt with the passage and signing into law of an Alabama bill that prohibits almost all abortions.
The bill is a shot across the bow of Supreme Court decisions in cases such as Roe, Planned Parenthood v. Casey and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.
That wasn’t what Joy Behar was interested in, though.
“Can we look at the panel of men who did this? What do they have in common?” Behar said as the discussion began.
And then, lo and behold, an image of white male legislators popped up on the screen.
Behar went on to say, “they’re all men. All white guys.”
She then took it even further by saying, “maybe we should make it a law they should all be required to get a vasectomy,” she said to a round of applause. “That would solve the problem.”
