Chelsea Handler She started her week of guest hosting shows Jimmy Kimmel by going after “pro-life” Republicans and joking that her three abortions are all the evidence Americans need Raw vs. Wade What should have been overturned.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time hosting guests,” the comedian said Thursday night. “But like women’s rights, all good things must come to an end.” If it was “nothing else,” he consoled the fact that she “got one viewer to change his mind,” highlighting a tweet that began, “Knowing she’s not raising children is almost a justification for abortion.”
In the week’s final monologue, Handler gave a history lesson of sorts about the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in 1919. Just over a hundred years later, she proposed the Twenty-Eighth Amendment to “end male suffrage.”
But if that wasn’t a realistic option, I issued a challenge to the men of America: “Men, if you don’t want us to go after your rights, you better rise up from your hairy ass and join the fight to defend our rights.”
Instead of “grieving” the women about how to get their rights back, she said, “Shut up, okay? How about doing the work once and not opening your mouth unless you’re chanting, ‘Her body, her choice.’” She pleaded with the men, “Talk to your sons.” Tell them why this is so important before Joe Rogan gets too carried away.”
“You have the power to make a difference,” Handler added. “If every man donated just one dollar to Planned Parenthood after masturbating, this organization would have enough resources to help every woman on the planet.”
“And you all have to bear some damned responsibility,” she said. “Abortion is a men’s issue. Because if there were no men, there would be no abortion. In fact, if there were no men, we would crash each other into space now.”
Handler ended her raucous talk with a “small piece of encouraging news,” the swearing-in of Justice Kitangi Brown Jackson. “For the first time ever, there are now four women on the Supreme Court,” she said, cheering. “And five if you add that bitch Clarence Thomas.”
