Samantha Bee's views on abortion and the religious right shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows about her. But not even Full Frontal was ready for the crazy, art cinema-inspired origins of the pro-life movement following the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in 1973.

Given the intimidation and violence that has pervaded the pro-life movement, it's pretty disheartening to see that the issue was casually brought to the forefront of politics solely as a way to mobilize conservative Christians for the benefit of leaders like Reverend Jerry Falwell, a man offended by the sexuality of Teletubbies.

Admittedly, their scare tactics would make for a great arthouse horror film.

When this is what you use to get people on your side of an issue, you should drop the cause and go to film school instead.

These PSAs deserve an A for artistic flourish, but an F in terms of making any sense.
