Goldberg referenced the Bible to make a case for freedom of choice

"As you know, God doesn't make mistakes. God made us smart enough to know when it wasn't going to work for us. That's the beauty of giving us freedom of choice."

"I also know that God made me smart enough to know that if there are alternatives that might work for me, I will look into them."

"I enjoyed this abortion debate because there was no yelling or screaming. I do not agree with Elizabeth because I am pro-choice. I respect her religious belief but that is her belief and does not pertain to everyone.
