Saturday Evening Are living took a 2nd swipe on the Superb Court docket’s reported plans to overturn Roe v. Wade all through this week’s “Weekend Update”—and despite the fact that the display’s chilly open at the matter used to be a bit of underwhelming, Kate McKinnon’s Amy Coney Barrett stole the display within the follow-up.
“Good evening, everyone,” Colin Jost stated on the most sensible of the phase. “Well, guys, tomorrow is Mother’s Day, whether you want it to be one or not.” When it comes to the leak—which he identified may “cause lasting damage to the Supreme Court”—Jost added, “The Court is usually careful, but they slipped up… and now they have to live with it forever. Sounds really unfair.”
Jost’s fellow “Weekend Update” anchor Michael Che stated he couldn’t fathom why conservatives are so obsessively antagonistic to abortion rights. “Maybe don’t think of it as abortion,” he stated. “Think of it as a patriot storming the uterus to overturn the results of an unfair pregnancy.”
After which got here McKinnon’s Amy Coney Barrett with all her unnerving cheer. The chance of shedding abortion rights isn’t so unhealthy, she insists. Her one query all through oral arguments reportedly focused at the chance that safe-haven regulations—which offer protection to new oldsters and guardians from criminal recourse for voluntarily giving up new child young children—may alleviate the lack of abortion rights.
“I just don’t understand why you need an abortion,” McKinnon’s Amy Coney Barrett stated. “You can leave a baby anywhere in the United States. Just plop it!”
“On a sidewalk? Plop it. Like Moses in a basket? Plop it. Like an infant in Jungle Book? ‘Do your nine,’ and then plop that baby and give it to a panther.”
“You are a murderer if you have an abortion, but you are not a murderer if you put a baby in a bag in a mailbox,” McKinnon stated. “That tracks and is good to me… I have seven children and a job and I make it work, so why every single other woman can’t do the same is beyond me—unless I’m missing something about class in America. Don’t answer that.”
