There was never much doubt about how Amy Coney Barrett felt about Roe vs. Wade. So Republicans were thrilled to push her through after the death of legendary women’s rights icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
During this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, the show sent up the controversial Supreme Court Justice. Colin Jost asked Coney Barrett, portrayed by Kate McKinnon, “You were asking about safe haven laws where can you legally leave a baby at a fire station, no questions asked.”
“That’s right, Colin,” Barrett replied. “I don’t understand why you need abortion because you can leave a baby anywhere in the United States. So like, what’s the big deal? Just plop it. Do your nine, leave it on the sidewalk, wrap it up like a little Moses, put it in a little basket. You are a murderer if you have an abortion, but you’re not a murderer if you put a baby in a bag in a mailbox and that tracks and that’s good to me.”
McKinnon’s Barrett continued, “Well just give it to a stork and the stork will give it to a lesbian. I would think the lesbians would be happy because now there’s more babies for them to adopt — until we ban that too.”
