The co-hosts of “The View” expressed their frustration one year after the landmark overturning of Roe v. Wade, sharing their anger from that day and criticizing Democrats for not enshrining abortion rights into federal law.

While the hosts were flying to The Bahamas, news broke that the Supreme Court had overturned the abortion rights decision. Co-host Joy Behar expressed her desire to throw someone out of the plane.

“I was mad that day… We were really pissed off. Remember how mad we were?” Behar asked.

“It was just so shocking. I don’t think anyone imagined that the Supreme Court would overturn a privacy right, because we have privacy via the Constitution,” co-host Sunny Hostin said.

The show played a recent MSNBC clip of Vice President Kamala Harris, who has become the face of the Biden administration’s abortion rights push following the Roe overturn. Harris discussed how the issue mobilized women even in red states and claimed Congress could legislate the “privacy right.”

However, Behar was unimpressed and stated, “It turns out that Democrats had the chance to codify Roe v. Wade in the past few decades, and they dropped the ball under [Bill] Clinton when they had the numbers in Congress, and in 2009 under [Barack] Obama… What makes her think this is going to happen now?”

Hostin speculated that Harris was using the issue to rally voters. The abortion debate partially contributed to Democrats’ better-than-expected performance in the 2022 midterms, where they gained a Senate seat and limited losses in the House. However, with Republicans controlling the House, the chances of passing an abortion rights bill before the next election are slim.

Hostin expressed anger at conservative Supreme Court nominees who vowed to respect Roe v. Wade as a “super precedent” but failed to keep their word.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin argued that Democrats had an obligation to find common ground with Republicans “in good faith,” considering that the majority of Americans are not in favor of abortion on demand but also don’t support a complete ban.
