The View’s liberal co-host Sunny Hostin says she’s AGAINST abortion even in incest or rape

The View’s liberal co-host Sunny Hostin said Monday that because of her deep Catholic faith, she draws a line when it comes to her stance against abortion: She doesn’t believe in exceptions, even in cases of rape or incest.

“I don’t believe in abortion at any time. I don’t believe in an exception to that,” she said.

“Even incest and rape?” asked her stunned co-host Sarah Haines.

“No, I don’t,” Hostin, 53, shot back. “That’s considered very radical by a lot of people, and that’s because I’m Catholic and that’s my faith.”

She went on to say she disagrees that religious belief should have guided the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to repeal the constitutional right to abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade.

“The judges – there will be six Catholics on the bench, and there will be two Protestants because the newest judge, Ketanji Brown Jackson, is a Protestant and there will be one person of Jewish faith,” she said. “This is an activist Supreme Court and they shouldn’t be making the law based on their beliefs. And even though I agree [Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito] about the sanctity of life… but the fact that he is clearly using and handling his religion is pretty awful.”

Hostin, a lawyer by profession, was born in New York City and grew up in The Bronx. She attended Catholic high school at the Dominican Academy and attended law school at Notre Dame.

Hostin is no stranger to courting controversy with her statements on the daytime chat show.

Hostin, 53, sparked outrage after calling for the abolition of the GOP, calling Republicans a “party of white supremacy” and “firearms slaughter.” She said, ‘Get rid of the Republicans, get rid of the party. Because as the party stands now, it is the party of white supremacy, it is the party of insurgents, the party of massacres at this point.”

Earlier this month, Hostin called Republicans the “party of white supremacy” and “gun killings.”

The ladies of View discussed the June 2 mass shooting at a hospital in Tulsa that killed four people.

“Get rid of the Republicans, get rid of the party,” she said. ‘Cause the way the party stands now, it’s the party of white supremacy, it’s the party of insurgents, the party of massacres at this point. It’s the party… you can’t trust it.’

Hostin hasn’t been particularly popular, especially internally.

In 2020, ABC News Director Barbara Fedida called Hostin “low rent” among other comments about minorities on the network, HuffPo reported.

Hostin, who is black and Latina, called the comment racist.

“I was really disappointed, saddened and hurt when I learned of the racist remarks allegedly made about me, my colleagues and my dear friends,” she said.

In her autobiography, “I Am These Truths: A Memoir of Identity, Justice and Living Between Worlds,” she wrote about her struggle with infertility and five miscarriages.

She said all her grief and pain were well worth it.

“I think you just stick with it, and you know that in the end it really is the best thing you can experience,” she said.

However, she has not always been in step with Catholic doctrine, especially when it comes to the LGBTQ movement.

She summoned Bishop Thomas Joseph Tobin (of the Diocese of Providence in Rhode Island) earlier this month after he tweeted that Catholics should not attend Pride Month events because: “They promote a culture and encourage activities that violate Catholic Faith and Catholic Morality. They are especially harmful to children.’

Hostin replied that she would not follow his advice.

“This practicing Catholic will support and attend LGBTQ Pride events,” she tweeted. “And so are my Catholic children. You should be ashamed, [Bishop Thomas Joseph Tobin]†
