Like many American personalities, actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg expressed her indignation at the Supreme Court’s decision to revoke the right to abortion, which could attack marriage for all.
On The View, Sister Act star Whoopi Goldberg said she was distressed by the US Supreme Court’s decision on abortion. Especially since now, the high judicial institution of the United States wishes to attack contraception and marriage for all.
What make the actress jump: “How far will this unraveling of fundamental rights go in the name of respect for the letter of the American Constitution?”.
Before continuing: “what will follow? As Clarence Thomas pointed out, they would like to get rid of contraception. Do you understand anything about it, sir? No, because you don’t have to use it. You better hope they don’t come after you next time, Clarence, saying you shouldn’t be married to your wife who happens to be white.” These remarks refer to the judgment “Loving vs Virginia” which authorizes interracial marriages in the United States since 1967.
“The founding text of American democracy was written without taking into account the black population”
The American actress notably dwelt on the fact that, until 1968, black people in the United States did not appear in the Constitution, thus remaining in a condition of slavery.
“The founding text of American democracy was written without taking into account the black population, abounds Whoopi Goldberg. You better hope no one says you’re not part of the Constitution. You go back to being a second-rate person, because that’s not going to work either.”
