Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck clashed about abortion rights on “The View” on Wednesday

“God made us smart enough to know when it wasn’t going to work for us. That’s the beauty of giving us freedom of choice.”

After a short back-and-forth with Hasselbeck, who was the conservative voice on “The View” from 2003 to 2013 and later moved to “Fox & Friends”

“I also know that God made me smart enough to know that if there are alternatives out there that can work for me, I will investigate them,” she said

“What about the life in the womb?” Hasselbeck argued. “I will say this, that life has a plan and a purpose designed by God.”

Christian religious institutions have argued for years that the Bible does not support abortion

Pope Francis said in July that President Biden should not be able to square his Catholic faith and his support for abortion

The discussion on “The View” came the morning after Kansas residents voted overwhelmingly to keep abortion legal in the state.
