I’m surprised they haven’t passed a law forcing women to put their sonogram through the puppy Snapchat filter before they decide whether to keep it,” Bee says. “Overturning Roe has always been the pro-lifers’ wet dream, and the way things are going, it’s a wet dream that may soon be required by law to have a full and dignified burial.” Check out the full segment above.
