Whoopi Goldberg has been criticized on the right for claiming that men cannot bear fetuses. This stance is contrary to the left-wing stance on transgender pregnancy.
After an oral argument in the Supreme Court on Wednesday, an angry Goldberg lashed out at the man Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, this case depends on whether Mississippi can ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
“Is it possible for your men to have an egg or become pregnant with a fetus?” Annoyed Ms. Goldberg, the host of the ABC’s “The View” program. “How dare you say what the fetus wants! You don’t know. If you disagree with abortion, I am fine. I have no doubt about that. When you tell me what I need to do to my doctor and my family, My question is here. How dare you.”
She made her comments in response to a statement made by Judge Samuel Alito at the hearing, who said that “fetuses are interested in having life, and this will not change.”
As conservatives quickly pointed out, LGBTQ advocates have announced that only women can give birth, and trans men who believe that women are born can and do get pregnant.
“Woby Goldberg expressed transgender hate speech,” conservative expert Ian Miles Cheong wrote on Twitter.
Actor Kevin Sobo said: “Woby Goldberg just said that a man cannot’be pregnant with a fetus’. The medical decision should be made between’my doctor and my family’… Then when will she be cancelled? Isn’t it a bit afraid of sex change??”
Tik Tok’s conservative account Libs tweeted: “This is one of the scariest things I have ever seen. I’m really shaking.”
“I have been reliably told that many men are indeed likely to become pregnant,” said Matt Walsh of the Daily Telegraph. “This kind of transgender prejudice from Wubi Goldberg is heinous and unacceptable.”
Seriously uncool Trans hates being in view. Violent even.

The conservative website Not the Bee recites: “This level of anti-LGBT prejudice has no place in society.”
Senior National Review writer Charles CW Cook said that the left needs to be straightforward.
“At some point, progressives will have to decide whether the pregnancy is inherently female (as Ruth Bud Ginsberg said, and the plaintiff’s attorney implied in Wednesday’s hearing), or gender Is it a patriarchal myth, so pregnancy is widespread,” he said in a post on Friday.
Those who think men can get pregnant include the American Civil Liberties Union, which said in a 2019 tweet, “There is no one way to be a man.”
“Men who are menstruating are men. Men who conceive and have children are men. Transgender and non-binary men belong,” said the American Civil Liberties Union.
Advocates on both sides of the abortion issue predict that Dobbs The case may undermine the decision to legalize abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973.
The Dobbs High Court is not expected to make a ruling until the end of June or early July.
