Meghan McCain called out the “anti-adoption fringe” who have claimed that being adopted is worse than life, as she talked about her adopted sister Bridget McCain’s life.

“I can assure you my sister [Bridget] prefers being alive than dead,” the former co-host of “The View” tweeted Friday to her hundreds of thousands of followers. (RELATED: ‘Dragged’: Meghan McCain Blasts ‘Every Single Person In Biden Administration’ Over Fall Of Kabul)

“And would prefer a life outside of an orphanage in Calcutta,” she added. “Of all the grotesque woke commentary to emerge in the past few years – the anti-adoption fringe intellectuals are by far the most vile and sick.” (RELATED: ‘I’m Just Going To Rip The Band-Aid Off’: Meghan McCain Announces She’s Leaving ‘The View’)

McCain’s post included an opinion piece in the New York Times, under a headline that read, “I Was Adopted. I Know the Trauma It Can Inflict.”

“‘The right likes to suggest that abortion is a traumatic experience for women,’ writes Elizabeth Spiers, who was adopted as an infant, in a guest essay,” the tweet from the NYT read. “But adoption is often just as traumatic as the right thinks abortion is, if not more so.”  (RELATED: Here’s What Would Actually Happen If Roe Is Overturned)

The former Fox News host previously talked about when she was about 7 years old the day her mom, Cindy McCain, brought home Bridget from Bangladesh, Showbiz CheatSheet.com noted.

“I remember when my mom brought her home and she had a cleft palette and clearly needed surgery,” McCain shared. “I remember thinking that I was excited I had a new sister. We shared a room and I remember thinking that—she—it’s weird like how children just sort of absorb things, that she was just my sister.”

“That, oh ok, I have a new sister and she’s here,” she added. That’s a real testament to kids and how they just don’t question things.”
