Watch Sarah Silverman Hang Out With Jesus and Talk Women’s Reproductive Rights
11:33 am, January 22nd | by Colette McIntyre
Today marks the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide and changed the lives of lazy high school public speaking teachers for good. (“The kids…they shall debate,” the teachers whispered, slowly lowering the morning’s newspaper which trumpeted the ruling. “Year after year, they will debate and we — we will be free! Free to start our erotic roller-skating rink romance novel. FREE!” ) While we don’t usually talk politics (since there’s nothing to talk about; misandry is the only correct answer), we are always willing to make an exception for Sarah Silverman.
In the spirit of her previous satirical videos like “Let My People Vote 2012 – Get Nana A Gun” and “The Great Schlep,” Silverman has released her take on the fight for reproductive rights. Turns out the famously Jewish comedian hung out with Jesus the other night (he loves marathoning lighthearted TV dramas) and has the scoop on when life begins, straight from the carpenter’s mouth.
