ABC’s “The View” moderator Whoopi Goldberg was fired up about parents who don’t vaccinate their children last week, and co-host Nicolle Wallace shared her own gripes on Friday’s show.
The conversation was sparked by a CNN article earlier this week about questions that concerned parents should ask before sending their child to playdates, such as whether or not they had received vaccinations.
“You can’t drop your dog off at ‘Biscuits & Bath’ until you answer a questionnaire about all the shots that your dog has had. That’s doggy daycare,” Wallace said. “So you better be able to ask a parent about whether a kid has had all their shots before you bring your infant over there.
“It’s ridiculous that we have to be sensitive about asking whether your kid is safe from measles,” she added.
Wallace’s stern response came after Goldberg had lashed out against parents who choose not to vaccinate their children during a Jan. 29 taping of the talk show.
“Save your emails and your tweets, because I don’t care. I get that ya’ll feel it’s scary for you,” she said. “Because I tell you, if I get measles from your kid because I haven’t had them, I’m coming to your house.”
“It feels very non-pious. I don’t think Christ would feel that. There are children who need families, and there are loving adults capable of providing that for them. They shouldn’t be denied that based on the gender of the person they love,” said O’Donnell, who is openly gay and a mother of five.
