The Daily Show’s John Oliver caught Secular Pro-Life’s attention because of an ignorant remark he made about a North Carolina Senate bill that addressed both abortion safety regulations and Sharia law. Oliver said, “Let me just understand this: You’re adding abortion restrictions to legislation banning the making of laws based upon religious belief. That’s like passing a bill banning high fructose corn syrup, and adding a provision naming the state animal the gummy bear!”
But news reports, which Oliver apparently avoided, tell a different story: “The Senate bill was inserted into an unrelated House measure to prohibit North Carolina judges from applying part of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign law in certain cases.”
So was Oliver really out of the loop or did he intend to make a mockery of the fact that abortion is actually an act that results in death for a member of the human family?
