Whoopi Goldberg talked about abortion on The View in 2007, highlighting the dangers of illegal procedures:
"Most women do not have [abortions] with some sort of party going on. It is the hardest decision that a woman ever has to make . . . One of the reasons we've had to make this decision is because so many women were found bleeding, dead, with hangers in their bodies because they were doing it themselves. The idea of this was to make it safe and clean — that was the reason the law came into effect."
