Full Frontal's Samantha Bee Takes on Texas Abortion Laws (With a Little Help From Game of Thrones)

“Pretending the Supreme Court never ruled on abortion has been Texas’ attitude ever since Roe v. Wade,” according to Samantha Bee, and Full Frontal addressed this hot-button issue head-on Monday in a segment that examined the state’s restrictive laws.

Ahead of a decision by the Supreme Court which will rule whether or not to end legislation that has forced all but 10 Texas abortion clinics to shut down, Bee spoke with Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, and state Rep. Dan Flynn to get to the bottom of why such laws are enacted in the first place.

When it becomes clear that Flynn knows little about the abortion process, Bee turns to Game of Thrones to illustrate why he might be under the assumption that the procedure involves “cuttin’ on people’s bodies.”

Watch the segment above, then weigh in with a comment below.
