Left-wing late-night hosts unanimously sounded the alarm about a possible end to federal protections for abortion, bashing Republicans and the Supreme Court on the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.
In a scathing monologue from Trevor Noah, “The Daily Show” host asserted that the “history” of America is that men can control “what women do,” adding that abortion has also become a part of history and “tradition” in the U.S.
“You want to talk about history and tradition, I think it’s safe to say [abortions] a tradition at this point,” Noah remarked. “Like if you go without electricity for a weekend you’re camping. If you go without if for 50 years, you’re Amish mother——. That’s just who you are.”

Moments later Noah claimed that the Supreme Court draft opinion could make all sorts of other things “illegal,” including contraception, gay-marriage, sex before marriage, adultery, and masturbation. The talking point that an end to Roe v. Wade could spell doom for other rights has also been parroted by much of the liberal media over the past two days.
“Late Late Show” host James Corden also pressed the panic button on abortion when he proclaimed the leaked opinion could be the “the biggest rollback of human rights in modern U.S. history.”
Corden added that the news was “stunning and sad and terrifying,” ripping Republicans who are against vaccine mandates and masking, but favor a reversal of the landmark Supreme Court case.
Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion said in part that “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert, mocking Alito’s words, cracked, “Yes, it’s time to return this issue to the guy who Venmos teenagers for sex and the woman who believes in Jewish space lasers.”
“But what do I know? I’m no Supreme Court Justice. I’m not a good enough liar,” Colbert added.
Meanwhile, NBC “Late Night” host Seth Meyers acted in an extensive and scathing sketch with comedians Amber Rufflin and Jenny Hagel, who portrayed two representatives from the Democratic Nation Comedy (DNC). The two “representatives” satirically panicked that there was absolutely no chance for Democrats to stop an end to abortion in America.
“So you really think there’s still hope?” Meyers asked at one point.

“F— no. Can you even hear yourself? You sound insane right now. The legislative branch? Have you heard of Joe Manchin? We can’t get anything through there!” Hagel and Rufflin exclaimed, in a state of full-blown hysteria.
Hagel and Rufflin then said they would take the issue to the courts and then the Supreme Court in an effort to fight back.
“Wait, isn’t the Supreme Court the problem?” Meyers confusedly responded.
“You’re damn right it is! There’s like 17 conservatives on the Supreme Court. There’s only supposed to be nine Justices, but somehow they have like 17 conservatives on there! And like 30 of them are Catholic! And 20 of them are super-Catholic!” Hagel and Rufflin responded.
The comedy sketch also found time to take a shot at President Biden, after the two comedians floated the idea of getting the executive branch involved. Meyers then asked if Biden would issue an executive order.
“F— no! That guy can’t do anything! He can’t forgive three-dollars in student loans! That guy can’t even maintain the back of his haircut. He’s losing the fight against his own mullet, but you think he’s going to win the fight for abortion rights?” the fake DNC reps said.
