"The fetus has an interest in having a life," Alito announced Wednesday throughout oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health - where Mississippi is trying to strike down a lower court's blocking of its 15-week abortion ban.
"And that doesn't change, does it, from the point before viability to the point after viability? There are those who say that the rights of personhood should be considered to have taken hold at a point when the fetus acquires certain independent characteristics. But viability is dependent on medical technology and medical practice. It has changed. It may continue to change."
Goldberg, talking on The View, renamed Alito, claiming that he has no idea what a fetus wants as a male.
"Do any of you men have any eggs or the possibility of carrying a fetus? How dare you talk about what a fetus wants? You have no idea," she announced.
The talk-show host claimed that Alito shouldn't have a say in when an unborn child can or cannot live outside of the uterus.
"I'm fine if you disagree with abortion, I have no problem with that. My problem comes when you tell me what I need to do with my doctor and my family. How dare you. How dare you!" Goldberg exploded.
During Wednesday’s discussions, her co-hosts echoed her anger, denouncing other Conservative justices over their commentary.
"What he said, you know, that amount of weeks is arbitrary, it's not," Sarah Haines stated, responding to Justice John Roberts' commentary questioning why 15 weeks wasn't sufficient enough time to choose to abort or not.
"To me this is the difference and why viability matters. You're choosing between two lives. There's a mother and a fetus. When the baby – or when the fetus is able to live outside of the mother, when it's viable, that becomes equal ground. To me the mother should be put first until that baby can survive outside."
Golberg's co-host Sunny Hostin, a retired lawyer who openly rejects abortion and identifies as Catholic, claimed that Justice Amy Coney Barrett was "disingenuous" in her arguments - yet failed to cite any of her commentaries explicitly.
Hostin said that although she believes life starts at conception, she would "never confuse church and state" and wouldn't try to impose her views on others.
She went on: "I am fearful about Roe v. Wade being overturned."
