The Daily Show with Trevor Noah took on the pro-life movement on Monday, proposing that anti-abortion advocates like Carly Fiorina and Jeb Bush channel their pro-life rhetoric into another vital issue: gun control.
Noah began by pointing out the great success the anti-choice movement has seen in “restricting access to abortion using methods such as expanding waiting periods and requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at hospitals,” as the Los Angeles Times reported.
“You might not be a fan of pro-lifers, but you’ve got to admit they are damn good at what they do,” Noah stated, adding “The same way that the Knicks have to give props to Lebron James, or the way that dolphins have to give props to tuna nets.”
Noah went on to suggest that these anti-abortion Republicans adopt a similar level of interest and commitment towards addressing the gun violence plaguing the nation:
The point is, if pro-lifers would just redirect their powers toward gun violence, the amount of lives they could save would reach superhero levels. They just need to have a superhero’s total dedication to life. Because right now they’re more like comic book collectors. Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing.
