The latest episode of NBC’s ‘SNL’ has left many viewers cringing over a segment featuring a character named Goober the Clown detailing her experience of getting a “clown abortion” at 23.
“Did you know that one in three clowns will have an abortion in her lifetime?” comedian Cecily Strong asked during the show’s Weekend Update segment while wearing a clown costume. The sketch was meant to focus on new Texas law, which effectively bans abortions after six weeks.
Strong went on to list some abortion facts and describe how difficult it is to talk about while occasionally stopping for some humor, like slapping on a goofy pair of glasses.
