"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee last night returned to the topic of the religious right's pro-life origin story.

"Having gotten abortion into the Republican platform and evangelical churches, religious right leaders like (Jerry) Falwell spent the next two decades relentlessly pushing the message that abortion caused everything from breast cancer to 9/11," Bee explained. "After a generation spent successfully riling up the base with feverish anti-abortion rhetoric, it's no surprise that the divisive issue has divided many from their own sanity."

"Fine, let's look at everything the bible says about abortion," Bee responded to a clip of one of "the countless thousands" of "super annoying assholes" protesting Planned Parenthood, bible in hand. "Oh, there it is, in the book of Doesn't Exist. Right next to the verse condemning lesbians."
