John Oliver Explains Anti-Abortion Laws and Shares Some Cute Sloths on ‘Last Week Tonight’

Here’s a great segment from last night’s Last Week Tonight, where John Oliver breaks down many states’ “TRAP” laws, which stands for “targeted regulation of abortion providers.” No matter how great a length abortion clinics will go to meet the amount of restrictions put upon them, Oliver explains that these laws make abortions that are “theoretically legal” in the country virtually impossible for many women to obtain. “Here is the thing: Abortion cannot just be theoretically legal — it has to be literally accessible.” And if you stick around for the whole segment, the Last Week Tonight crew have the perfect reward for you at the end — a cute sloth!
