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.
