On Wednesday’s Full Frontal show on TBS, late-night “comedian” Samantha Bee began what is allegedly a comedy show by railing against recent efforts to curtail abortion, including both the passage of heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies, and the recently released film Unplanned recounting a former Planned Parenthood employee who turned pro-life.
Bee first trashed the film, which she immediately called “ridiculous,” and insisted “no one should see it.” Witness the “tolerance” of the Left on full-frontal display:
This weekend, anti-choice propaganda movie, Unplanned, surprised audiences with a not awful showing at the box office. It’s obviously ridiculous, and no one should see it, but the trailer is honestly wonderful, especially its portrayal of Planned Parenthood.
Then came edited portions of the film’s official trailer in which her betrayed Planned Parenthood supervisor warns “Congratulations, you’ve just taken on one of the most powerful organization on the planet.”
Bee reacted by mocking that sentence and repeating the myth that the abortion conglomerate performs mammograms (it does breast exams, but refers patients to other clinics for mammograms):
“No matter where you go, no matter where you hide, I will give you health care. I am going to mammogram your t*****s so hard, they’re going to look like crepes.”
After making a crack about how “bad” she thought the movie was, she blamed Vice President Mike Pence tweeting about it for her decision to discuss it on the show. She then cracked: “The movie sold over $700,000 tickets during its opening weekend, which sounds impressive until you realize it was mostly Duggars. There are so many Duggars, you guys. They f***.”
Bee then called Unplanned as largely fictional as she pivoted to attacking recent heartbeat bills that have been either passed already or are being debated in several states: “Now, Unplanned is mostly made-up, but there are real and terrifying laws being passed to limit access to abortion as we speak.”
After a clip of CBS This Morning recounting Georgia’s heartbeat bill, Bee continued: “Georgia’s new bill outlaws abortion as soon as doctors can discern a fetal heartbeat, which happens around six weeks of pregnancy. It’s a time a lot of women don’t even know they’re pregnant yet.
Make no mistake. This law will hurt women. Georgia ranks as the worst state in the country for maternal mortality, and the Georgia Department of Health found that 60 percent of these deaths were preventable. Instead of handling this very real crisis, Georgia lawmakers are instead making it harder for women to receive medical care.
Where did Bee get this? It sounds exactly like a CNN.com op-ed from Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Bee added Georgia has a “massive” shortage of OB/GYNs, which will worsen if “reproductive health care is criminalized.”
She then injected more crude humor as the show depicted animation of men writing bills against abortion as if they were masturbating, and then cracked that “guys who want to regulate our snatches always look as though they’ve never been within ten feet of one.”
She then moved to attacking U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as someone likely to vote in favor of overturning Roe V. Wade, lamenting that “he’s already ruined beer and beach weeks, and now he’s going to ruin this, too.”
