The View's Joy Behar's take on the matter, in the prism of Tim Tebow's mother choosing to carry him to term, is one such example.
The transcript, if you can't believe what you just heard:
â‡¥â‡¥"What are people flippin' out about," bewildered moderator Whoopi Goldberg -- herself an ardent pro-choice activist -- asked.â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥Behar does walk back her statement from the incendiary phrase, but that choice of words makes it far more likely that a response will be about admonishing her for saying that than addressing her well-reasoned argument about the potential of a child and the "individual choice" of the woman.
â‡¥â‡¥"The only argument against any of it is, that, you know, he could just as easily have become some kind of a rapist pedophile. I mean, you don't know what someone's going to be," Behar answered, adding:â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥â‡¥
â‡¥"In this case, he turned out to be great, but it's not an argument about abortion or not abortion [sic], it's just, this particular case, this particular woman decided not to do it, and this is the wonderful result. There are others who decide to do it [commit abortion], and they're glad that they did it. You know, I mean, it's a very individual choice."â‡¥
