Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) triggered "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Monday after she whipped out facts about pro-abortion states.
The conversation about abortion began calmly. Mace said there needs to be "balance" on abortion policy through which lawmakers "show we're pro-life, but we care about women." The balancing act is necessary, Mace explained, because Democrats don't "want to tell you what their limits are" while Republicans believe in "no exceptions."
Mace said she believes most Americans support exceptions for abortion and believe there should be a gestational limit in the second trimester. That's when Goldberg began taking issue with Mace.
"I'm curious, do you want the government telling you how to raise your family?" Goldberg asked.
Mace said she doesn't want government intervention, prompting Goldberg to suggest that any government-imposed limit on abortion rights tramples on a woman's right to "choice."
"At some point that baby — people will agree with me — that the baby deserves the right to life," Mace argued.
"But that's your belief," Goldberg shot back.

The conversation took a serious turn when Mace noted that some states do not place any gestational limit on abortion, which theoretically allows abortion up until the moment of birth.
And that's when Goldberg lost it.
"No! Let's stop that! No one, no one, no one, no doctor, no hospital, no one will take a baby at nine months for an abortion. I'm telling you!" Goldberg interjected.
Goldberg, who is pro-abortion, then claimed she is "pro-life."
"I also am pro-life. I want everybody to have a safe life. I want them to be safe and do all the things that they should be able to do. But when it comes to what is best for my family and I, why isn't that my choice and my doctor's choice without bringing anyone else in?" she said.
To Mace's point, seven states — Alaska, Colorado, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Vermont — and Washington, D.C., currently have no gestational limit on abortion.
Mace also highlighted the fact that Democratic Party leaders, including President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, refuse to endorse any restrictions on abortion, giving the perception that they believe there should be none.
