John Oliver Explains the Unnecessary Laws Politicians Pass to Block Women from Having Abortions

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver spent half the show talking about the completely unnecessary laws blocking women from having access to abortions. While anti-abortion politicians love to say they’re passing laws to protect the health of women, Oliver showed how health has nothing to do with it:

My favorite part may be the clip featuring Dr. Willie Parker. Oliver didn’t mention this on the show, but Parker is an incredible guy. He’s one of the only abortion providers in Mississippi and, believe it or not, a Christian. Very few people have the courage to say what he does in that clip — even fewer are willing to go against their own church and community.

It makes no sense how some people can call themselves “pro-life” when they do so much to ruin the lives of women who are trying to obtain a perfectly legal procedure.
