SNL’s Leslie Jones Goes On Unhinged Pro-Abortion Rant While Dressed As A ‘Handmaid’

0 412

SNL’s Leslie Jones decided to give everyone a break from her lack of comedic genius to go on an unhinged anti-abortion rant on Saturday Night Live during their “Weekend Update” segment, while dressed as a “handmaid” from the show, “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Droll y’all. That’s almost as unfunny as her Ghostbusters performance and that’s saying something.

Jones is a vocal progressive who is very pro-choice. She is incensed by a series of “heartbeat” laws passed last week that dramatically limit abortion in several states. In Georgia and elsewhere, legislators passed “heartbeat bills” that ban abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, at about the sixth week of pregnancy. In Alabama, legislators banned the procedure altogether, passing a law that would not just outlaw abortion, but punish those who provide them. There are no exceptions for rape or incest. The new law punishes doctors with a Class C felony, with sentences of 10 to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion.

To show her displeasure with the “heartbeat” bills sweeping the south, Jones dressed in a red gown and white hat and decried the new laws as a “war on women.” “You can’t tell me what to do with my body!” Jones screamed before tearing open her “handmaid” dress to reveal a black tee shirt with the word “MINE” printed on it, with an arrow pointing downward, ostensibly to her uterus.

“This is how it starts,” Jones bellowed. “I’m out living my life, then I see on the news, a bunch of states are trying to ban abortion, and then tell me what I can and can’t do with my body. Next thing you know,” Jones ranted, “I’m in Starbucks, and they won’t take my credit card because I’m a woman, instead of the regular reason, which is I don’t have no money on it.” Starbucks is liberal friendly and could give a crap what gender she is.

From The Daily Wire:

“That is…quite the stretch, but Jones is, at last count, a comedian, and not schooled in how to accurately interpret policy.

“She then criticized the Alabama legislator for allowing men to vote on the bill, claiming that the lineup of lawmakers who voted for the bill look like a “casting call for a Lipitor commercial,” conveniently ignoring that the bill was proposed by a woman and signed into law by a female governor. And that the basis for her ire, the Roe v. Wade decision that determined abortion could be included in the Constitution’s protection of privacy in reproduction, was ratified by a lineup of male Justices.

“You can’t control women,” Jones added. “When women have a choice, women have freedom.”

“This really is a war on women,” she continued. “If you’re a women out there, and you feel scared and confused, just know you’re not alone. There’s so many women out there that got your back.”

“There are, of course, many women who aren’t scared and confused by laws limiting the ability of women to end their pregnancies once the baby shows definitive signs of life (or, frankly, even before). The laws in Georgia and Alabama represent some of the most dramatic challenges to abortion in recent memory, but other states are following suit. Missouri introduced its law on Friday, and this week, Louisiana’s Democratic governor is expected to sign a slate of abortion restrictions into law in that state as well.

“The law in Alabama, which apparently set Jones off, will go into effect in six months.”

Jones also quipped: “This look like the mugshots of everyone arrested at a massage parlor,” Jones said. “And if any of them had lips, I would tell them to kiss my entire a**. You can’t control women because — I don’t know if y’all heard — but women are the same as humans.” Yes, and so are the unborn.

“And I’m Leslie ‘Dracarys’ Jones!” she added, referring to the Game of Thrones phrase that commands dragons to breathe fire. “I mean, why do all of these weird a— men care what women choose to do with their bodies, anyways?” Jones said. “I don’t care what you care to do with your 65-year-old droopy a— balls!”

The star concluded: “You can’t tell me what to do with my body. You can’t make me small or put me in a box. I’m six feet tall and 233 lbs. — ain’t no box big enough to hold me!”

The laws will be challenged, no doubt, by Planned Parenthood and the left. This will go all the way to the Supreme Court. And Leslie ‘Dracarys That Bi*ch’ Jones will be right in the thick of it. Her words, not mine.
