In a recent program on HBO’s Real Time with Maher, host Bill Maher discussed some surprising facts that he discovered about abortion with his panel.
His interest was sparked by the release of the Supreme Court’s draft decision on Roe vs Wade.
Maher, who is pro-choice, said he was shocked that European nations have much stricter abortion laws than the US, and secondly, he discovered, to his surprise, that the majority of those who are pro-life are in fact, women.
Christian Headlines provided the details of Maher’s comments:
“I learned things this week – because this put it on the front page – that are pretty basic things that I did not know about abortion,” Maher said. “Like in Europe, the modern countries of Europe are way more restrictive than we are. …
If you are pro-choice, you would like it a lot less in Germany and Italy and France and Spain and Switzerland.”“Did you know that?” he asked his panelists, who said they didn’t.
“I learned most people who are pro-life are women. [I] did not know that,” he added.
