Whoopi Goldberg, one of the co-hosts of “The View,” claimed Wednesday the reason abortion exists is because people “got tired of tripping over women in bathrooms with hangers in their body.”
She said abortion — and the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade — came about not for religious reasons, but because the procedure needed to be “safe and clean.”
“Here’s the deal,” Goldberg said. “Abortion did not come around for religious reasons. The reason abortion came about is because people got tired of tripping over women in bathrooms with hangers in their body, OK? This was always supposed to be about safe and clean.”

It says, ‘If you find yourself in a situation that you can’t handle, perhaps you go and talk to your family and then you all decide what you are going to do.’”
