The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah notes that Republicans who call themselves “pro-life” fail when it comes to preventing gun deaths.
Noah began the segment by mocking Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and calling out people like Carly Fiorina and Jason Chaffetz for being blatantly dishonest in their attempts to discredit the women’s health organization.
In the end, however, Noah challenged the very idea of what it is to be pro-life, and in so doing showed the hypocrisy at the root of the so-called pro-life movement.
Discussing the recent tragic shooting at an Oregon community college Noah said that when it comes to the issue of life, Republicans are “more like comic book collectors: human life only matters until you take it out of the package.”
Imagine if we could bring some of that pro-life passion into being more well, pro-life…
The point is if pro-lifers would just redirect their power towards gun violence. The amount of lives they could save would reach superhero levels. They just need to have a superhero, total dedication to life because right now they are more like comic book collectors. Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package. And then it is worth nothing.
