Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee Rips Chris Wallace And Donald Trump For Pushing Myth Of “Partial-Birth” Abortion

Bee: If Chris Wallace “Got Abortion That Wrong, You Can Imagine How Much Wronger Trump Got It”

From the October 24 edition of TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee:

SAMANTHA BEE: Now, if you were hoping to hear a debate moderator ask about climate change, you have to wait another four years. And I suggest you do it on higher ground. But, if you were hoping to hear old men talk about vaginas some more, hey it's your lucky night. 


CHRIS WALLACE: I want to explore how far you believe the right to abortion goes. 


WALLACE: You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions.


BEE: Excuse me a sec -- Joe. Thank you so much. Thank you, Partial-birth abortions aren't a thing. Thank you so much. It's a non-medical term the National Right to Life Committee made up in the 90s for a procedure that was outlawed in 2003 by the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, seen here being signed by George W. Bush, along with some of Congress' leading women's health experts. 


BEE: Chris Wallace conflated partial-birth abortion -- which doesn't exist -- with late term abortion, which does, rarely. Only 1.3 percent of abortions take place at or after 21 weeks, and guess what? It's not because women are selfish sluts who wake up in their third trimester and decide, I'm not into this. I want a procrast-abortion. It's usually because the tests done at that point reveal a fatal birth defect or a serious risk to the mother's life. And if Mike Wallace's son got abortion that wrong, you can imagine how much wronger Trump got it. Bigly wronger. 


It sounds a lot like Trump has confused abortions with bear attacks. Removing a baby from a women's womb in the ninth month isn't an abortion, it's a birth. And I'm sure Donald Trump would love to outlaw it. It makes the pussies too gross and screamy for grabbing.
