The pressure put against abortion during the age of President Trump has pushed "The Daily Show" creator Lizz Winstead into saying some of the most hateful rhetoric yet toward pro-lifers and the unborn.
In the next few weeks, the Supreme Court will be considering whether or not it will hear a case on whether states could legislate that aborted fetuses be given proper burials as human beings based on the "dignity of personhood." Fearing that this could seriously harm the benchmark Roe v. Wade case, Lizz Winstead tweeted some of the vilest hatred she has ever expressed in support of abortion.
"Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for abortions AND miscarriages based on 'dignity of personhood.' If they take it, & decide medical waste is a person, ROE IS DEAD. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION," she tweeted.
Winstead later shared a video from her group Lady Parts Justice League in which pro-lifers are attacked as "real bats**t" extremists.
"One of the most recent proposed unconstitutional scams mandates the burial of all fetal tissue from miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and abortions performed in all medical facilities," the group says of the case before the Supreme Court.
As noted by LifeNews, feminists and abortion activists have been fighting legislation to give deceased unborn babies burials ever since the law passed in Indiana under the reign of then-Governor Mike Pence.
CNN columnist Danielle Campoamor tweeted, "Dear Scotus, Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. But I am. And I matter more than fetal tissue. Signed, people who have miscarriages and abortions."
Most recently, Lizz Winstead's Lady Parts Justice League launched a pro-abortion comedy tour to teach women that promoting abortion could be "fun." The group would often disrupt sidewalk counselors who were out to educate young women on the cruelty of abortion by doing obnoxious stunts like blaring Beyoncé "to overpower the chants from the stunned anti-abortion protesters and energize the enthusiastic clinic staff." Other stunts involved just plain shouting over pro-lifers and making jokes.
Should the Supreme Court decline to hear the case on unborn burial laws, another law on fetal homicide out of Alabama could also challenge the validity of Roe v. Wade. The law stemmed from a recent case in which a man was convicted of double-homicide for murdering his wife, Jessie Livell Phillips, when she was eight months pregnant. Upon his conviction, the jury cited the 2006 law defining a child in utero as a "person."
After being sentenced to death by the court, the convicted murderer appealed the decision to the state Supreme Court, alleging that unborn children do not have the same protections as those who are born. The court rejected his case, with Justice Tom Parker declaring it a "logical fallacy" for the government to declare homicide in the case of a man murdering a pregnant woman but not when a woman gets an abortion — particularly a late-term abortion, which can be done up to the moment a child is born.
While pro-lifers are torn on whether the Alabama law is the best course of action against Roe, they do acknowledge that fetal homicide laws reveal a serious case of cognitive dissonance.
