Jimmy Kimmel’s wife resumes monologue in support of abortion rights – Rolling Stone

“The only person who should make a life-changing and potentially life-saving decision for a woman and her body is the woman herself,” said co-author Molly McNearney.

In Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel sped up for the midterm elections. The host took on former President Donald Trump, Dr. Oz and Herschel Walker in the opening monologue. However, the highlight of the evening went to Kimmel’s wife and co-writer of the series, Molly McNearney, who literally sounded the alarm bells in favor of the right to abortion.

McNearney took the stage midway through Kimmel’s usual monologue, wearing a flashing red light, and addressed the audience: “Tomorrow is election day, and abortion rights are gone or gone. are at risk in 26 states, even though the majority of people in this country support a woman’s right to choose.

After a round of applause, McNearney continued, preferring facts to banter and jokes. “92% of abortions happen in the first 13 weeks,” she said. “About half of women who have abortions live below the poverty line.”

“The only person who should be making a life-changing and potentially life-saving decision for a woman and her body is the woman herself. I’m not here with this stupid scare asking you to love abortion,” McNearney said. “I’m asking you to love women enough to trust them enough to make their own tough decisions and vote for the people who make it tomorrow. Our daughters shouldn’t have to fight the battles our grandmothers won.

The United States Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade left the decision to abort to the states – making midterm elections key to determining who controls the laws and policies that govern the procedure.
