Late Night with Seth Meyers




  • whats wrong with alabama why is it like this

  • Stop commingling the abortion issue with the trump problem. Most of us true christians are against abortion...that doesn't mean we have fallen for Don the Con (who has probably paid for a few abortions in his time I'm sure). Abortion is wrong just as surely as trump is a crook. Reproductive rights in this day & age should mean you have the right to birth control....the right to not get pregnant if you're not ready to reproduce. There is a big difference between preventing pregnancy & murdering a baby. Life begins at the DNA test .We ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE WOMAN'S BODY...WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS BODY. If we treated cancer the way some politicians want to talk about a pregnancy , it doesn't count until it's big enough to pop out of the womans belly & be seen from outside....we'd have a lot more cancer deaths. But NO we recognize that cancer is cancer even when it's small & we treat it as such. If you want to keep YOUR body from reproducing...either dont have sex or have safe sex. But if you're too irresponsible to do murdering a child should not be an option in a civilized society.

  • Abortion is a result of a society not placing value on all life. Having a heart for children would mean raising our children knowing the simple difference between good and bad. Protecting women's rights would not be an issue if women were safe because they were protected by men and woman who were raised with the knowledge and wisdom that comes from drawing a line in the sand between what is good (kind) and what is bad (hurtful). Apparently, it is going to take fathers and mothers, brothers and sister's experiencing the full consequences of their fellow mankind's actions before our society will stop wasting lives talking about apples and oranges and choose what is right for all of our children. Improve all life by drawing a line in the sand between what is good and what is bad. Only than can we begin to truly improve all mankind.

  • The republicans are now outright refusing to give in to the oversight committee, powered by trumps bravado and authoritarian rule. The amount of damage, perhaps irreversible that trump and the republicans have caused is a disaster for world wide democracy. He has influenced far right governments world wide, and our fundamental human rights are at stake. Meanwhile, Putin is laughing and rubbing his hands together in delight at the fact the west is falling apart. Those stupid fools who support Trump will soon realise how much damage they are responsible for when there kids are governed under a dictatorship in the near future, mark my words. Authoritarianism and fascism is only a generation away.

  • I don't find this a laughing matter. I had an incest child and I love my son no matter how he was brought into this world. People are so quick to kill a child that had no say so. I had my son at 15 and I can say G-d had provided for me. It's not a right to kill a child. I don't see why people see abortion as the only option. How can you hate a baby for something they have no conscience about? Evil. Pure evil.

  • "Who was this guy's sex ed teacher?" Nobody. It's Alabama. IF there's any sex ed NOW, it's "abstinence only", but he's a Gen-X'r, at that time there was no sex ed taught in Alabama. In health class in 7th grade he would have learned about sperm and eggs and fallopian tubes and urethas and vas deferens, but that's it. You find out that conception occurs when the sperm meets egg, and from there on the lesson stops and that section is done, now you're moving on to something else. Then you forget most of the little bit they did learn in a year or so because it's never mentioned again. They think life begins at conception because their knowledge of sex education ends.

  • Unless a chick is on some sort of aggressive fertility program - there is every possible range of at what point in the pregnancy it can be discovered, up to the moment of delivery. Typically, it can be somewhere around the late 3rd or early 4th trimester - but there is just no telling and no one, not the woman herself or the most expert clinician can really know or judge - least of all, dudes or anyone, who barely passed biology.

I suggest to deliver our sperm production to the closest sperm bank under penalty of a fine or even jail time. If you can make law on how to govern a women's body, we should see how it is when we do the same!

Abortion should be stopped, its an evolution of our dark past. Just like the first two scenarios, we need to open our eyes to see the evil we are conducting

    • 1) The American foster care system is appallingly strained, underfunded, and under-regulated. There are several hundred thousand kids in the system already, tens of thousands leave on any given year due to aging out, and state/federal support for both of those groups is constantly victimized by the same legislators that argue against abortion. 2) Humans are animals. We are not the only animals in the world screwing for reasons other than conception. Making a biological process a moral issue is purely a product of our stupidity and hubris. 3) "Let's teach women to defend themselves" is great and all, but it doesn't stop rapists from raping, doesn't un-rape someone who couldn't defend themselves, and provides NOTHING for minors. This is not a solution - it's victim blaming. Stop it. 4) Totally agree... except these laws also target contraception methods that compromise egg fertilization or potentially fertilized eggs. Also see most of the Midwest where sex-ed is so lax, too many teens and minors engaging in sexual activity are either unaware or completely unable to obtain means of safe-sex. For this to be effective, the education system needs an overhaul and legislation needs to stop fucking with it. 5) Agreed. It would be nice, however, not to be forced by people who want nothing to do with your own well-being or the well-being of your child post-birth to carry a baby to term that you do not want, do not wish to inflict suffering upon, or cannot care for properly due to extenuating circumstances. If lawmakers want to force pregnant women to carry all children to term, support provisions should be made for both the mother AND child once it has actually been born. 6) It isn't selfish to avoid having children any more than it is to avoid adoption. It isn't selfish not to want a child that was forced on you by happenstance or conceived through a series of bad choices. But it is highly irresponsible to have children before you're ready, before you're able to comfortably provide for yourself, before you have a stable home and support system to provide for that child. Wanna see selfish? Forcing babies into the world through law while simultaneously defunding programs aimed at providing assistance for impoverished or struggling families, all to inflate someone's bottom line and ensure the populace produces plenty of low-income, low-opportunity youth to fuel the war-machine of tomorrow is selfish. Forcing your neighbor to adhere to your moral code, religious beliefs, or personal opinions when their choices have little or no effect on anyone but them is selfish. TL;DR - No.

  • He allowed a 484-page report on the 2-year investigation that cost us Billions, with an outcome of innocent of accusations. The Democrats are rude, nonprofessional, representatives with no interest in we the people. So, Trump declassifies everything except his tax returns and now he is in a coverup. Covering up what? Oh, like everyone else's taxes should not need to be examined. We need to examine Every Congressional member's taxes for the past 20 years. Let's see that. What have you all been drinking? I certainly would not brag about the ridiculous stunts of the Democrats who have accomplished nothing but cost us money. Nor would I support a woman who was involved in this countries worst cover-up ever. And you want her to be your leader? Wow! At least Trump is a proven leader and has accomplished more in two years under enormous pressure than Obama did in eight years. Now I'm afraid. Ignorance, or is it stupidity is bread. Laws are being broken here and not by President Trump. Have a great weekend.
