Comedian Lizz Winstead calls herself an “abortion evangelist” and does not shy away from the label pro-abortion.

A co-creator of “The Daily Show,” Winstead recently spoke with The Daily Beast about the pro-abortion group that she created to support the abortion industry and to try to normalize the killing of unborn babies. Lady Parts Justice League travels across the country putting on abortion comedy shows and supporting abortion workers.

“Part USO, part Habitat for Humanity, [my group] travels the country doing comedy and providing aid and comfort to independent clinics in hostile states,” Winstead said.

She criticized both pro-life and “pro-choice” people in the interview, claiming pro-lifers are really anti-choice while pro-choice people are not as boldly supportive of abortion as she would like them to be.

When the interviewer asked her about pro-life advocates planning for an end to Roe v. Wade, Winstead corrected her.

“I say anti-choicers,” she replied. “I’m pro-life, so is everybody I know. We care about life!”

She should have added a caveat to explain that she is only pro-life for human beings who already have been born. Winstead said she “always” supports abortion, suggesting she believes women should be allowed to abort their unborn babies for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.

She also criticized people who call themselves pro-choice and treat abortion as a sensitive matter.

According to the interview:

I was hoping you could speak to the strength and commitment of that movement, and why there isn’t as strong of a grassroots, nationwide countermovement?

I think that the right has been building this massive anti-abortion movement forever and they have been able to do so partially by playing on the fact that we go on the defensive when we talk about abortion. People are like, “I’m pro-choice, I’m not pro-abortion’ and it’s like, why do you say that? How many people’s morality around abortion is dictated by the talking points of the right? I would say a lot. I think people don’t think about what they mean when they say things like, well at least we should have [abortion] for rape and incest. And it’s like, no, we should have it always. Because how someone gets pregnant isn’t the point here. The point here is access to abortion should be legal because it’s safe and fine and not murder. And when I see pro-choice people not wanting to confront the anti-abortion people or even be abortion-positive in their language, I feel really worried about that.

Her critiques of pro-life advocates were, unsurprisingly, much harsher. Winstead reiterated the tired, old claim that pro-lifers do not care about babies once they are born – which is entirely false.

Arguing that the pro-life movement is a tool of an oppressive patriarchy, she claimed pro-lifers use the “noble” goal of “saving the babies” to excuse being “vitriolic a——.”

“You can just be like, I’m here to save that baby who I’m never going to meet, who I’m never going to take care of. I’m just here with this fake morality all day long,” she claimed.

But being pro-life means believing that every human life is valuable, from conception to natural death. And none are as vulnerable today as babies in the womb. Every year, nearly 1 million unborn babies are killed in abortions. Since Roe v. Wade, approximately 60 million unborn babies have been aborted in America. The pro-life movement is dedicated to saving these babies and their mothers from the pain and death of abortion.

Pro-life advocates run thousands of pregnancy centers, maternity homes and other charities to provide support to pregnant moms and babies before and after birth. Many pro-life families adopt children who need homes, volunteer their time and give their money to support families in need. This is what being pro-life really means: supporting all human lives, not just some, and not just when it is convenient.
