Feminist comedian Samantha Bee slams restrictive reproduction laws
Samantha Bee slammed restrictive reproduction laws and wants abortion to be "an integrated part of healthcare," widely available for every woman who wants it.
Bee is the host of the Full Frontal show that airs every Wednesday on TBS. In the recent episode of it, Bee once again did what she loves to do the most – politics. She expressed her concern about "shitty men" that pass “terrible, restrictive abortion laws" across the South, that don't allow women to have an abortion as they would want it. Meaning – on every possible occasion. She also said that the same men that pass such laws, "don't know where the vagina is."
In the part of her Full Frontal program, named "Sticky Fingers, Sticky Conversations," Bee's "correspondent," with the same agenda as Bee, met with a woman fighting for abortion rights.
Naomi Ekperigin spoke with pro-abortion activist Loretta Ross about the situation of women that have a child at really young age. Ross expressed an opinion that if they have "right answers" to possible issues like their healthcare and employment status, a child may be "a wanted child." But with "bad answers" to these questions, "even a planned pregnancy or a wanted pregnancy may end in an abortion.”
Bee said that abortion should be widely available for all women that want it, like "a full menu." She also added that this could be "good for business." One of her guests complained that the recently passed laws led to the closure of many abortion clinics, which means that "people have to find another job."
Samantha Bee and her Full Frontal show were also controversial before. In the episode aired on May 30th, 2018, Bee called Trump's daughter, Ivanka "a feckless c-nt." Reason? In Bee's opinion, Ivanka does nothing to stop "her dad's immigration practices," that separate immigrants families.
