Oliver before going against the Supreme Court Judge Samuel Alitodraft majority opinion, which held that “the right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the history and traditions of the Nation.” The presenter later mocked this argument. “Even if that were true – dammit, by the way – framers probably dropped the right to a specific abortion because they couldn’t have foreseen it would be such a big concern,” Oliver said. speak. “I don’t know why these particular individuals don’t have abortions in their minds. There must have been some explanation. I just can’t pinpoint the exact reason, but it’s on the tip of my penis. ”

Oliver also shows footage from a Evil behavior especially in that a Texas woman cannot have an abortion six weeks and one day pregnant. “For most people, that’s two weeks late, and your period can be two weeks late for any number of reasons,” says Oliver. “Maybe you are tired or traveling or you have changed your diet or exercise.
