The Kardashians were praised on “The View” on Monday for visiting Planned Parenthood. Watch the video below.

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian went to a Planned Parenthood clinic last week, touring the facility and meeting with staffers. They showcased the visit on social media, and it will also be featured on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg said that some have called it a “publicity stunt, but even if it is, good on them!”

The panel was in agreement. “It’s this discussion that we often have. If you have this platform and you choose to use it for something that’s important to you, then perhaps that’s a good thing,” Sunny Hostin said, adding, “I’ve been critical at times of the Kardashians, but this could be a good thing.” She and Goldberg went on to further commend the famous family for being “moguls.”

Noted the moderator, “They’ve earned their money. Nobody gave it to them.” Sara Haines singled out Kim, celebrating her for saying before the election that she wanted to do research before voting. “I thought it was so responsible for her to put that out there,” said the co-host. She added about the family being outspoken, “I don’t care what it was, I think the fact that they did it deserves a huge bravo.”

And while Jedediah Bila has often come down against Planned Parenthood on “The View,” she was in full support of the Kardashians’ trip to a center. She commented, “I think celebrities take a lot of heat, though, a lot of times. It’s unfortunate, because it’s automatically assumed, ‘Oh, if they’re doing it, it’s for publicity.’ You don’t know what issues are close to their hearts.”

Joy Behar snarkily asked, “When it comes to the Kardashians, what good is it if it’s not on TV?” But both Goldberg and Bila pushed back, explaining why it really was beneficial that the sisters filmed the meeting. “If it’s on TV with them walking through that [facility]… I think it’s a good idea because that will be the only time [some people] will see” inside of a Planned Parenthood, said the moderator.

Responded Bila, “I think that’s a great point.” She explained, “When you have these discussions about abortions or sensitive issues like this, the one thing people don’t do is go to these places and visit and see what it’s about. So I think by them taking pictures with the representatives of the organization, it shows that before you critique something, go! Figure out what’s it’s about, visit, sit with people.” Check out the video below.
