The ladies of “The View” were lambasted on social media after suggesting that women should go on a sex strike
if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
Co-host Joy Behar recommended that American women put on their chastity belts if 1973 federal ruling is overturned, after a leak indicated that the nation’s highest court was planning to reverse course on abortion rights.
“Women in the world have conducted sex strikes in history,” Behar, 79, remarked. “In 2003, a sex strike helped to end Liberia’s brutal civil war, and the woman who started it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2009, Kenyan women enforced a sex ban until police political infighting ceased. Within one week, there was a stable government.”
“We have more power than we think we do, and some of it could be in the bedroom,” she continued. “Just saying.”
Co-host Sara Haines cheered on the suggestion, “And what a perfect weapon and method for the topic we’re talking about.”
Whoopi Goldberg claimed that women’s voting rights could be at risk if the nearly 50-year-old law could be tossed.
“The other thing to remember is that this is not just about abortion, it covers so many things that you’re not thinking about that wouldn’t cross your mind because you think, ‘Well, I thought that was the law,'” she commented.

Twitter brutally mocked the women of “The View” for the sexless suggestion. “I’m pretty sure the ladies of ‘The View’ participating in a ‘sex strike’ will not have their intended effect,” Donald Trump Jr. quipped.“Quite candidly, I imagine it will do the opposite… But that’s just me.”
“They do realize that someone would actually want to have sex with them in order for them to ‘go on strike’ from doing it, right?” Concurred comedian Tim Young.
“Joy Behar says she’s going on a sex strike. And here I was thinking she wanted to punish men,” jeered Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla.
