        I wish I could have a pajama party with Leslie Jones, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Maya Rudolph, Rosalyn Carter, Betty White and the ghosts of Shirley Chisholm and Gracie Burns.

          It has nothing to do with being a woman, it has everything to do with killing children.... how do they not get this!?

            Then men should figure out a way to carry the fetus. Until then, shut the fuck up. No self-respecting woman gives a flat fuck what any man says about abortion. Until you can get pregnant, it is none of your fucking business.

            That’s such a lame argument. No one cares what women do to their bodies. It’s the other body people care about. Human rights?

              Ok. Because men are tripping over themselves to figure out a way to carry a pregnancy, right? It has nothing to do with my body, except that it is INSIDE my fucking body. You're dumb. Your views are nothing but bullshit you bought into on some hillbilly news source or at church. Show me a funeral for a 10 week old fetus and I might actually listen to you call a clump of cells a baby.

            Get rid of roe v wade. N btw it isnt your property. N it aint ur fuckin choice to murder a baby. Its ur choice to have sex or be abstinence. Deal with the consequences. That baby is a gift from God. Its a blessing and u satanists want to kill em. Shame on u ppl.

              Do you have a womb? Then shut the fuck up. Get a vasectomy. Don't ever have sex unless you want a child. Hell, don't even beat off, because you know, those little cells are possible children.

                  I am 5foot6, 123 pounds, bisexual, Caucasian and I support the right for women to get abortions because IT IS OUR RIGHT AS A FEMALE TO DO WHATEVER WE WANT TO OUR BODY AND IF YOU THINK THATS WRONG WELL THE WOMAN ARMY IS COMING

                      I love that Leslie is for female empowerment... but abortion isn't about female empowerment. We as women are capable of making decisions up until a conception of a human life- the choice whether or not to have sex, the choice to use contraception properly, the choice to educate ourselves on the results of unprotected sexual activity. I get that everyone is outraged with the 25 male senators because they're male, but like Leslie said, the female governor signed off on the bill, and she was happy to do it. All the legislators involved in pro-life laws care about "what women are doing with their bodies" because it isn't just their body, it's also the body of a defenseless fetus, which is by definition a human. If they were fighting against a woman's right to sexual activity before contraception, that would be a different issue, but that's not what this law is about. The only reason I'm posting this is because pro-life people aren't getting any representation in the media right now, and I feel like the majority of people who are supporting pro-choice rhetoric are blindly going along with it because they don't realize what abortion actually is. So I'm open for discussion, but will not tolerate slurs, hate, or generalizations about me or my position, and won't do the same to you. :)

                              Location of a baby doesn't give anyone the right to kill the baby, nor does the baby's necessity of care that you may or may not be able to provide. A baby's body is not your body, and therefore NOT your choice.

                                                This isn't funny. How about you stupid lefty women stop fu**ing every man that gives you the time? SNL is just leftist propaganda. NOT FUNNY!

                                                  Or maybe husbands could stop raping their wives to keep them in their place while he goes out to cheat with escorts. Are you people actually so ignorant to think abortions are due topromiscuity? Do you actually not know how many women are forcibly impregnated? Tell men to keep their dick to themselves, dumb ass. That would solve the entire problem.

                                                opinions on abortion are like nipples.
                                                everyone has em, but woman's are just a lot more relevant.

                                                  Women have been having abortions for thousands of years and will
                                                  continue having abortions whether you like it or not. The issue is them
                                                  having SAFE abortions performed by a medical doctor; not a barber or an
                                                  iron worker. Prior to the 1973 Roe vs Wade ruling many women died from
                                                  complications like bleeding, infections, and punctured uterus's but
                                                  after the ruling they can now have SAFE abortions with very few
                                                  complications. The evil pro-lifers want to FORCE women to have the
                                                  unsafe abortions knowing many of them will die an excruciating death.

A choice to use birth control, a choice not to sleep around, etc. Once the baby exists it's no longer a choice. You already made a choice when you laid down.

That is a fucking lie. Tell men to keep control of their dicks before you worry about what a woman does after the fact. Marital rape and fertility abuse is REAL. Fucking idiot

So many women aligning themselves with misogynistic Republicans or too chicken shit to speak up about it. This is the kind of public figure we need! Interesting how having a big body seems to liberate a woman enough from the male gaze that she gains room to speak up, lay it down and be heard.

Way too many women i know are trying to syncretize this show with recent events. Probably the fact i can't stand Leslie Jones and how she can rarely deliver a line or hold a straight face unless she's the center of attention, Leslie Jones isn't funny.
