"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night examined the Supreme Court case concerning an "anti-abortion law in Texas that is pretty obviously aimed at trying to curb access to abortion."

Meyers noted that "since Roe v. Wade in 1973, states have enacted 1,074 abortion restrictions. Of these, 288, or 27%, have been enacted just since 2010."

"The only things that have increased more than abortion restrictions in the last five years," he continued, "are new emojis and the amount you hear Bruno Mars at the gym."

"Texas lawmakers claim that the new rules are just to protect women's health and safety, but they're not," Meyers said. "These lawmakers care about safety the way Olive Garden cares about portion control -- not at all."
