On “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Amy Klobuchar and Maher went back and forth about the abortion debate. Their discussion didn’t go the way we might expect. While both support the freedom to kill children in the womb, Maher pushed back on a very common stereotype. He actually defended the pro-life viewpoint.
During Friday night’s panel discussion, Maher boasted how the abortion debate that’s been revived following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has helped motivate Democrats ahead of the midterms, which had previously forecasted a red wave for a big Republican takeover of Congress.
“The Supreme Court did you, politically, a big favor,” Maher told Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. “Because for a while, people were, ‘I don’t know, this really gonna get people out to the polls?’ We have enough evidence now with these special elections and the polling, we see. And you know, who really is up in arms about this that we didn’t think was going to be? Dads.”
Klobuchar responded with the oldest trope. She said that the women of America and the men who stand with them don’t want anyone telling them what they can and can’t do with their bodies. Maher’s response was shockingly reasonable:
“I’m certainly pro-choice… What I’m saying is you shouldn’t say to the other side, ‘You people hate women.’ They don’t hate women. They just think it’s murder,” Maher said. “And if you think it’s murder, then you can’t go, ‘Well except for people with a vagina. They can commit murder.’ I don’t think it’s murder, but they legitimately do. And it insults them.”
You might be surprised how many Americans have never even heard that argument. The media continually repeats the chant: “my body my choice,” and so many people think that’s the whole issue. Even when they hear an argument for the child, democrats often think it’s just a cover for someone who wants to “control women.” The coalition for life is fighting against the greatest genocide the world has ever seen, and thank God Almighty, it’s losing steam.
