For years, the comedian Sarah Silverman has built her career on producing shocking and stunning content. Her jokes aim to wake people up to the problems she sees in American society. But while she is one of the few female comedians who has become a household name, she still tries to produce jokes and comedy that leave people feeling dirty.
During a recent show, Silverman along with other female comedians started playing a game she called “S***ty Law Charades.” That’s when a contestant began to act out a new law the prevented pieces and parts of aborted fetuses from being used in drink and food products. Anyone with any conscience would see this as a good law to have for a civilized society. Instead, Silverman saw it as a hindrance to women’s rights.
The joke refers to a 2012 controversy that dates back to when PepsiCo contracted with the biotech company called Senomyx. The biotech company had been accused of using cells from aborted fetuses to enhance the taste and flavors of Pepsi’s most popular drinks. The rumor was proven to be false. Nonetheless, it remained as part of the pop culture canon. And Silverman was not shy about bringing up the issue to keep the disgusting rumor alive.
As the contestant is going through her joke, Silverman blunders into the forefront and takes things over. Then she says the following which left many viewers sick to their stomachs.
“If anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it’s this law.”
Silverman uttered the disturbing statement during a “telethon” that was part of the Lady Parts Justice League initiative that fights for women’s rights and pro-choice abortion laws.
“The fundraiser, hosted by Winstead herself, along with comedian Sarah Silverman, featured almost 4 hours of bizarre content, including abortion charades, an interview with abortionist Willie Parker, and political rants,” LifeNews reported.
Silverman has also been documented, by The Daily Wire, for making fun of a proposed conservative bill that would require all aborted fetuses to be cremated or buried, putting a burden on the mother and the state.
“F***ing funerals for f***ing aborted fetuses? I would like to speak at those funerals. He lived the way he died. He died the way he lived. The size of a sesame seed with no discerning brain function.”
During the rant, Silverman discusses how these anti-abortion laws intersect with religion and religious liberty. She claims to be disappointed with the way things have changed in America.
“Religious freedom used to be such a beautiful thing because it was like this big inclusive thing in the country, and now it’s just this shroud to legalize hate and s*** like that.”
During the pro-choice fundraising, Star Wars star Mark Hamill was there to auction off gear. “Disney gave us a Last Jedi poster, and when we figure out who wins, I’ll personalize it. I’ll write something obscene and dirty if you want,” he said.
