There are many people in the news media sharing their thoughts on the draft opinion by The Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Howard Stern Show,” Howard Stern didn’t hold back his remarks on those going after women’s rights. “I got the good news this morning about a women’s right to choose being overturned, and I just was livid,” Stern began, per Mediaite.
He then took a step back and took a shot at the Electoral College, stating that the majority of the people in the country aren’t receiving what they want. Furthermore, Stern said that if the situation were the other way around, abortions would be available.
“This all started because of this f–king Electoral College. I’ve got a real problem with this idea, the concept that the majority of the people in the United States do not get what they want,” Stern said.
“If guys got raped and pregnant, there’d be abortions available on every corner. Every street corner, a different clinic that would take care of the problem.”
Stern also shared his confusion about why some women vote for politicians who plan to take away women’s rights when elected into positions of power and influence.
“How women would vote for this agenda is beyond me. Who the hell wants to carry a baby that you do not want? And again, the people who carry these babies who don’t want them don’t raise these kids, and then we’re stuck with them.”
“The people who are anti-abortion, they don’t give to charity, they don’t raise these kids. I don’t know who they think is going to raise them.”
The radio host finished his remarks by calling out anti-abortionists and saying that women who don’t want to be mothers and a forced to have their kids should be able to let them live in The Supreme Court.
“How did we get to this point,” Stern asked. “How much more are we going to take? How much more of this bullshit that some hillbilly in South Dakota gets a more important vote cause he lives in South Dakota. Let me tell you something.”
“Here’s what I say. All the unwanted children should be allowed to live at the Supreme Court building with those Justices, and they should raise every one of those babies. That crackpot Clarence Thomas and that wife and all of them. They can raise those babies that they want.”
