    A 13 year old victim of rape can’t get an abortion and now has to become a
    mom. That makes me want to punch one of those 19%ers in the neck.

    Abortion mortality rate 0.00073%?
    No, they have a mortality rate of 100%; that’s the definition of abortion,
    killing a baby.

    John Oliver, THANK YOU!
    Thank you for speaking about the actual problems America has in the best
    way I can imagine.
    I’m (thankfully) not affacted by your laws as I don’t live in the US, but
    I’ve learned to love this kind of weird country. It’s just a shame it has
    next to all the good things about it, so many disappointing and cruel laws,
    regulations and politics.
    I’m glad you have so many followers who listen to the words you speak!

    Here in Canada it’s legal and available in EVERY hospital and covered under
    our great health care system. It is the peoples who are involved, not an
    outsiders with no direct impact on the situation who should have the
    ability to make that choice.

    I personally think that religion is nothing more then socially acceptable
    brainwashing yet I’m not going around trying to make it illegal rather I
    can educate them with better information but in the end the choice is
    there’s and there’s alone.

    Thank you for sharing the truth!

    It’s the current year.

    Life itself is based on death. The sperm that don’t become the actual baby
    die. Should we ban reproduction? Obviously not.

    I’m part on the 19%. Well, he almost made it the entire video w/out
    insulting my position. That’s actually, pretty good. I completely disagree
    with the underhanded tactics being used to shut down those clinic.

    I believe abortions are important, but we shouldn’t promote it as an
    equally viable solution to birth control. I have seen people proudly
    flaunting their abortions on social media. If you need to get an abortion,
    that is fine, but you should never be proud of that.

  16. Joseph Blumenfeld says:

    Abortion is murder… period. The science has been settled. This is about
    protecting the child not the mother. Yes it is unfortunate, but it is not
    the child’s fault. Grow the fuck up and take responsibility for your

    11:58 – I’ll probably get hate for this, but by no means are her state’s
    laws forcing her into performing her own abortion with kitchen tools.
    That’s like saying outlawing assisted suicide forces someone to slit their
    wrists in the bathtub. Just like suicide, abortion is never forced – there
    are other options. Furthermore, even if it’s not pleasant, giving birth to
    a child does not mean losing your future or ruining your life. Several of
    my friends are adopted and have met their birth parents. They went on to
    have successful careers, get married, and start families of their own – the
    time just wasn’t right when they had their first children.

    …has to be one of the worst ways to die. Right after…

    having your mother catch you masturbating and while you’re trying to pull
    your pants up, you fall and hit your head so your dad has to carry you
    pants-less to the car to take you to the hospital and the girl-next-door
    you have a crush on tries to help but she’s laughing so hard at the size of
    your penis that she close the door in your hand, startling your mother who
    slams the foot on the gas dragging you behind the car for several blocks
    while your father yells your TV show’s derivative and you’ll never escape
    the shadow of Jon Stewart!
