Comedian Lizz Winstead: Women “Need” Abortions Because Abortion “is Part of Health Care for People”

Most people do not find anything funny about the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

But most people aren’t Lizz Winstead.

The former “Daily Show” comedian now runs her own pro-abortion group, Lady Parts Justice League. Her group is traveling across the country this summer on its “Vagical Mystery Tour” comedy show to promote abortions and encourage people to become abortion activists.

Winstead recently spoke to City Pages in Minnesota about the reason for the tour.

The tour includes comedians and musicians who joke about abortions, discuss the issue and urge the audience to support their local abortion facilities. Winstead said this tour, their second, also is encouraging people to get out and vote in the mid-term elections.

At every stop, she said they also do a volunteer project for a local abortion facility and urge their audience to do the same.

“We’ll do anything they’re too overwhelmed and busy to do,” Winstead said. “Whatever skills that [audience members] have, whatever they know how to do, they can be helpful in making the lives of these providers better.”

According to the report:

Winstead noticed that there are plenty of groups that address patient advocacy and reproductive rights at the policy level, but there isn’t much in the way of support for abortion providers and clinic workers. She decided to travel around the country doing comedy shows followed by talk back sessions with providers and activists to let audience members know what laws to be on the lookout for in their state and how they can help out local clinics. Audiences are often shocked to hear what’s going on legislatively in their hometowns, but this doesn’t surprise Winstead at all.

“There’s an assault on reproductive access,” she says. “It’s profound and intense and it’s never covered in the media.”

Quite the opposite, the mainstream media is very friendly toward the abortion industry, often parroting its talking points and accepting its claims without question.

Winstead did not see it that way.

“When one in four women will have an abortion in her reproductive lifetime, that is part of healthcare for people,” she said. “I refuse to be part of a silencing operation that tries to stigmatize people. They’re hard conversations to have, but they need to be had.”

She did not explain why abortion is a difficult issue to talk about, though. If an abortion is just a women’s healthcare procedure, as she claims to believe, it is difficult to understand why it is so controversial.

Pro-lifers know the reason, and Winstead may, too, even though she will not admit it. After more than 40 years of legalized abortion on demand in America, the issue still sharply divides the public because people realize that abortion kills a human life.

By supporting the abortion industry, Winstead and her group are making the lives of millions of human beings worse. Every year, the abortion industry in America destroys the lives of nearly 1 million unborn babies and injures many of their mothers in the process.
