On Wednesday, co-host of “The View” Joy Behar stated that the white men who voted for the bill to ban all forms of abortions should be forced to get vasectomies.
“Can we look at a picture of the panel of men who did this?” Behar asked as an image of 25 white males popped up on the screen who all voted for the bill. “There it is. Gee what do they have in common. They’re all men, all white guys.”
“Maybe they should all be required to get a vasectomy, that group in particular,” the far Left liberal added.

On Tuesday evening, the Alabama Senate made a very historic decision to ban abortions with no exceptions for rape or incest.
The bill was passed with a vote of 25-6 and then made it’s way to Governor Kay Ivey who signed the abortion bill into law.
Check out what AL.com reported on Tuesday:
After several hours of contentious debate, the Alabama Senate on Tuesday night voted 25-6 to pass what many say will be the strictest abortion ban in the nation. The bill makes abortion a felony in Alabama. A similar measure already passed the Republican-controlled House but controversy erupted last week in the Senate after an attempt to add amendments that would allow exceptions for victims of rape or incest. Another attempt to add rape and incest exceptions on Tuesday also failed and led to a filibuster attempt. Proponents of the measure pushed for a “clean bill” without amendments in order to clear the way to a legal fight in the U.S. Supreme Court and a review of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion.
On Wednesday evening, Gov. Ivey signed the abortion ban into law.
“Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act,” Ivey said in a statement. “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.”
In the statement, Ivey specifically stated that she hopes this bill challenges the Supreme Court’s Roe V. Wade decision.
“No matter one’s personal view on abortion, we can all recognize that, at least for the short term, this bill may similarly be unenforceable,” Ivey wrote. “As citizens of this great country, we must always respect the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court even when we disagree with their decisions. Many Americans, myself included, disagreed when Roe v. Wade was handed down in 1973. The sponsors of this bill believe that it is time, once again, for the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit this important matter, and they believe this act may bring about the best opportunity for this to occur.”
