Joy Behar Compares Pro-Life “Men” to Iran As Repressive Regime Kills Protesters


Although pro-life Americans in the United States seek an end to the systematic, government-sanctioned slaughter of unborn children in the womb, television host Joy Behar saw fit last week to compare such a political stance to the repressive Iranian regime that is slaughtering its own people as they rise up in protest.

Behar, a co-host of the ABC talk show ‘The View,’ made the comparison as she and her colleagues were discussing the recent spat of demonstrations in the theocratic Islamic regime, which broke out in response to the death in custody of a young Kurdish woman who was being detained by Iran’s morality police for violating its strict dress code.

As the ladies discussed CNN reporter Christine Amanpour, who recently refused to wear a hijab as a condition of being granted an interview with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in New York, Behar’s co-host Ana Navarro noted this had been likely act of solidarity with the Iranian people.

“And I think it was an act of solidarity with what is going on in Iran, and we should all be standing in solidarity with what’s going on in Iran,” she said.

“Well, we should be standing in solidarity in this country for men who are trying to control us with their abortion laws,” Behar jumped in, drawing a comparison between pro-life Americans (the majority of whom are women) and morality police tasked with enforcing laws requiring women to wear hijabs and cover themselves sufficiently while in public.

Navarro, it might be noted, identifies as Republican yet has emphatically defended a woman’s “right to choose” to abort their unborn babies, once even touting her own disabled family members as arguments in favor of abortion.

However, the professing conservative tried to be fair in this case, telling Behar, “Let’s not make that comparison.”

When Behar asked, “Why not?” Navarro replied, “Because those women over there are getting killed.”

Newsmax reported that according to an Iranian rights group, as many as 75 people have been killed in the ongoing demonstrations in the wake of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini’s death.

Behar demurred slightly, yet insisted that the Iranian regime’s laws could be compared to the “men who will try to control women.”

“I’m not saying they’re equivalent. I’m just saying we need to watch what’s going on in our own country too because these men will try to control women,” she said.

“I agree, but to me, they’re very different conversations,” Navarro replied.

LifeNews noted that while the panel lauded Amanpour for saying, “I have never been asked by any Iranian president – and I have interviewed every single one of them since 1995 – either inside or outside Iran, never been asked to wear a head scarf,” it also failed to note that CBS reporter Lesley Stahl recently agreed to the Iranian president’s strict modesty requests

“I was told how to dress, not to sit before he did, and not to interrupt him,” Stahl told her audience on Sunday.
