Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel’s wife took over his show Monday to “raise the alarm” against efforts to protect unborn babies from abortion across America.
In a message to voters, Molly McNearney, the executive producer and head writer for Kimmel’s show, urged Americans to support pro-abortion candidates in the election Tuesday, Breitbart reports.
“Tomorrow is election day, and abortion rights are gone or endangered in 26 states, even thought the majority of people in this country supports a woman’s right to choose,” she began after flashing a red alarm on stage.
McNearney brought up poverty to claim women need to be able to abort their unborn babies, and implied that pro-life laws put women’s lives at risk, which is false. All abortion bans and restrictions include exceptions to protect the mother’s life.
“The only person who should be making a life-altering, potentially life-saving decision for a woman and her body is the woman herself,” she continued. “I’m not here with this dumb alarm asking you guys to love abortion. I’m asking you to love women enough to trust women enough to make their own difficult decisions and to vote for the people who will make that happen tomorrow.”
However, McNearney never explained why an abortion is a difficult decision. She did mention how wonderful being a mother is but only while advocating for the killing of children before they are born.
“Being a mom is the best and the hardest job on the planet. I can’t imagine forcing any woman who doesn’t want that job to take it against her will,” she said, ignoring the life-affirming option of adoption.

Near the end of her speech, McNearney told voters to support abortion for their daughters’ sake.
“Our daughters should not have to fight the battles that our grandmothers won,” she said.
But many, many daughters are not alive today because of abortion. For nearly 50 years under Roe v. Wade, states were forced to legalize abortion on demand up to viability, and more than 63 million unborn babies were killed.
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court finally overturned the infamous ruling in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health and returned the abortion issue to voters. Now, more than a dozen states are enforcing laws that protect unborn babies from abortion and more are fighting in court to do so. New research estimates up to 10,000 unborn babies already have been saved from abortion as a result.
Democrat leaders have made abortion a key issue in the midterm elections, promising to force states to legalize taxpayer-funded abortion on demand if they win a few more seats in Congress. However, election experts predict Republicans will take back control of the U.S. House and potentially the Senate.
Polls consistently show that Americans support legal protections for unborn babies, especially after the first trimester, as well as parental consent laws and bans on taxpayer funding for elective abortions. LifeNews highlighted 14 recent polls here. One Marist poll found that just 36 percent of Americans believe abortions should be legal without any restrictions. Additionally, 73 percent oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions.
