Women of ‘Late Night’ join Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Samantha Bee to talk abortion regulation in Best of Late Night.
Eileen Rivers, USA TODAY OpinionThe women of Late Night join Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Samantha Bee to talk abortion regulation in Best of Late Night.Alabama is the latest state to place restrictions on abortion, instituting the heaviest regulation on a woman’s right to choose since Roe v. Wade.In fact, white males across the country are going to great legislative lengths to control what happens to women’s bodies — a point made all too comically clear by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” writers and performers Amber Ruffin, Ally Hord and Jenny Hagel. Take a look at today’s Best of Late Night, above, for their perspective. Alabama’s new law bans abortions in nearly all circumstances. See how late-night comic Stephen Colbert categorizes the legislation as a throwback. And Samantha Bee compares the growing restrictions across the country to a mafia movie franchise.Samantha Bee (Photo: Monica Schipper, Getty Images for Turner)After you watch our favorite moments from last night’s late-night lineup, vote for yours in the poll below.  Follow Eileen Rivers on Twitter @msdc14.  Read or Share this story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/05/16/colbert-meyers-amber-ruffin-ally-hord-jenny-hagel-fallon-samantha-bee-abortion-punchlines/3693699002/
