Michelle Wolf: ‘Pro-Life’ Is a ‘Propaganda Term That Isn’t Real’ (Video)

In a segment from her new Netflix show, "The Break," comedian Michelle Wolf, best known for her recent controversial monologue at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, points out the hypocrisy in the anti-abortion movement at a time when the debate over reproductive rights has taken on new urgency.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's impending retirement has raised a lot of questions about whether Roe v. Wade could soon be overturned. Women's rights advocates fear that Kennedy's replacement will fall further right on the political spectrum and help deliver a final blow against safe abortion access after years of battles that have left many women with few options regarding pregnancy.

Referring to people who say they are "pro-life," Wolf says, "These people are anti-abortion, which means they're anti-woman. If these people were actually pro-life they would be fighting hard for health care, child care, education, gun control and protecting the environment."

Wolf ends the clip with a funny, full-fledged-American salute to abortion. Watch the full segment in the video player above.
