Whoopi Goldberg Says Republicans Are Trying To Reintroduce Slavery

Actor and television personality Whoopi Goldberg accused Republicans of doing their best to “bring slavery back.”

During Wednesday’s broadcast of the ABC midday talk show “The View,” Goldberg criticized an Arizona Supreme Court ruling that upheld a law banning most abortions. She then tied the high court’s ruling to what she believes is the goal of Republicans.

“Take a look at the things that they’re rolling back. Remember I said ages ago, you know, in their minds, they want to bring slavery back. They’re okay with it. Because, you see, things change. You know, one of the good things about the Supreme Court is you can fight to make sure you make stuff better. You don’t generally fight to make stuff worse,” she stated.

“And to me, if you’re okay rolling that back, when things were not even a state, when we had no say … so, how’s that gonna roll?” she added.

She then went on to suggest that birth control is on the list of things that will be outlawed next.

In a ruling on Tuesday, the Arizona Supreme Court upheld a law from 1864 that bans all abortions in the state except for when the mother’s life is at risk. The law requires the punishment of anyone who aids an abortion except in the case where the mother’s life is at risk. Anyone caught breaking the law will face two to five years in prison.

The high court ruled in a 4-2 decision that the law “is now enforceable” and can take effect in 14 days from the ruling.

The ruling has been met with mixed reactions, with pro-lifers celebrating the justices’ decision.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement, “We celebrate this enormous victory for unborn children and their mothers. Reinstating Arizona’s pro-life law will protect more than 11,000 babies annually at all stages of pregnancy while providing an exception for the life of the mother.”

“This includes babies who have heartbeats, babies who can feel pain, and babies who can smile and suck their thumbs. Today’s state Supreme Court decision is a major advancement in the fight for life in Arizona,” she added.

Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, who initially made a promise to not enforce any bans or limitations on abortion, is not pleased with the decision, as she believes it is “an affront to freedom.”

“The Court has risked the health and lives of Arizonans. Today’s decision to reimpose a law from a time when Arizona wasn’t a state, the Civil War was raging, and women couldn’t even vote will go down in history as a stain on our state,” she said.

Arizona Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs has also voiced her stance against the ruling, promising to continue fighting “until we have secured the right to abortion.”
