Television host Samantha Bee likened conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett to dysentery Wednesday in another one of her vile pro-abortion rants.
Bee reacted after the Supreme Court heard arguments Monday about blocking the Texas heartbeat law, which prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable and already has saved thousands of babies’ lives.
The Wrap reports the TBS show host criticized the pro-life law because Texas women who want to abort their unborn babies now have to travel to other states.
“Think of it as a modern-day Oregon Trail, where all the pioneers are pregnant, and instead of dysentery, you die of Amy Coney Barrett,” Bee said.
Barrett, an appointee of President Donald Trump, replaced the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an icon of abortion activists. Her confirmation solidified the conservative majority on the high court, and the justices already refused twice to block the Texas pro-life law.
Now, Bee and other abortion activists fear that the justices will bring an end to Roe v. Wade altogether. The 1973 ruling forces states to legalize abortions without limits up to viability. If Roe goes, the Guttmacher Institute predicts 26 states will protect unborn babies by banning abortions.
“If the Supreme Court overturns [Roe v. Wade], we will live in a country where every state creates its own rules on abortion,” Bee said, according to Breitbart. “Twenty-two states, mostly in the South and Midwest, are poised to ban abortion in almost all cases.”

On Twitter, Bee also mocked Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, posting a Christmas card-type image that reads “Merry forced birth” in large letters next to a picture of Kavanaugh in a sweater with the words “Women aren’t people” written across the front.
“It feels like this happens every year. Halloween is barely over, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and already everyone’s talking about ‘Attack on Abortion Rights’ Season. For gosh sakes, Brett Kavanaugh already has his decorations up!” Bee wrote.
For decades, the Supreme Court has forced states to legalize abortions for any reason up to viability and allowed abortions up to birth under Roe v. Wade. That could change with Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, a Mississippi case scheduled before the court on Dec. 1 to consider if states may ban abortions before viability. Mississippi passed a 15-week abortion ban in 2018.
Though pro-abortion group are outraged at the prospect, polls consistently show that Americans support laws that protect unborn babies from abortions.
National polls by Marist and Gallup consistently find that a majority of Americans want all or most abortions to be illegal. A poll this year from AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that a strong majority of Americans believe states should be allowed to ban abortions after the first trimester, which is what the Mississippi law does. According to the poll, 65 percent said most or all second-trimester abortions should be illegal; the number increased to 80 percent in the third trimester.
Several recent polls also have found majority support for heartbeat laws that prohibit abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy.
Women do not need abortions to thrive. Tens of thousands of doctors confirm that abortions are not medical care, and pro-life advocates are expanding efforts to provide resources and other support to families in need. Abortion activists are painting a dire picture of America post-Roe, but ending abortion would bring about a brighter future for millions of mothers and children.
