Mark Hamill and Sarah Silverman Make Sickening Jokes About Abortion In Feminist Telethon

Actors Mark Hamill and Sarah Silverman, along with an array of other feminists including Lizz Winstead, were part of a pro-choice telethon for the "Lady Parts Justice League" (LPJL) making several sickening jokes about abortion, including eating fetuses and performing abortions with a "Jedi wand". Warning: video clips of the telethon follow in the article below and contain disgusting language.

The event, titled Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It, was held to raise funds for LPJL on Thursday and featured someone dressed as a vulva, abortion "charades", an interview with abortionist Willie Parker, and several speeches.

In the charades portion of the broadcast, volunteers were asked to act out two "sh***y" abortion laws: "You cannot use aborted fetuses as ingredients in the manufacture of food products," and "Clinics are mandated by law to cremate or bury every aborted fetus."

After the first "sh***y law" was acted out, Silverman said, "It's this bananas law that makes you think that eating fetuses is a thing and it's not; and if anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it's this law."

Star Wars' Mark Hamill made an appearance at the event for which he created two art pieces to be auctioned off. "Disney gave us a Last Jedi poster, and when we figure out who wins, I'll personalize it," he told the audience. "I'll write something obscene and dirty if you want."

Winstead then joked, "Mark Hamill is actually going to become an abortion provider. He'll give you an abortion with a Jedi wand. It's going to be awesome."

According to LPJL, its goal is "to create a fun and active social community which works to expose and remove politicians who are reproductive health hazards."

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards "LPJ's boots-on-the-ground efforts to get out the vote, production of hilarious and informative videos, and work with activists to help them grow their support bases in an effort to expose anti-choice politicians and help elect pro-choice politicians."
