“Comedian” Leslie Jones took the opportunity on Saturday Night Live to rant about her feelings about the recent abortion bans in states like Alabama.
While dressed as a “handmaid” from “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Jones ranted about her anger in relation to the “heartbeat” bill that calls for the end of all forms of abortion, including those related to rape and incest.
“You can’t tell me what to do with my body!” Jones yelled before tearing open her dress to show a black tee with the word “MINE” on it. Under “MINE” there was an arrow pointing down to her privates.
This is how it starts,” Jones yelled. “I’m out living my life, then I see on the news, a bunch of states are trying to ban abortion, and then tell me what I can and can’t do with my body.”
She then made the outlandish claim that Starbucks won’t serve her coffee because she is a woman.
“Next thing you know,” Jones continued, “I’m in Starbucks, and they won’t take my credit card because I’m a woman, instead of the regular reason, which is I don’t have no money on it.”
“You can’t control women,” Jones added. “When women have a choice, women have freedom.”
“This really is a war on women,” she said. “If you’re a women out there, and you feel scared and confused, just know you’re not alone. There’s so many women out there that got your back.”
Jones will have almost no direct impact from the abortion laws considering she doesn’t live in Alabama and no one in their right minds would want to attempt to impregnate her.
