Co-creator of 'The Daily Show': Aborted fetuses, miscarried babies are 'medical waste'

As the U.S. Supreme Court mulls whether it will hear an Indiana case in which the state mandated the burial of fetal remains before an injunction was issued against it, the co-creator of "The Daily Show" has weighed in with her own headline-grabbing opinion on the matter.

Lizz Winstead — who initially found humor in saying the deadly 2013 Oklahoma tornado was "ordered to only target conservatives" before apologizing when over 50 people lost their lives — tweeted that aborted fetuses and miscarried babies are "medical waste" and bemoaned the possibility that SCOTUS might hear the case.

"Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/burial for abortions AND miscarriages based on 'dignity of personhood.' If they take it, & decide medical waste is a person, ROE IS DEAD. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION," her tweet read.

In her tweet thread, Winstead also posted a video from her Lady Parts Justice group about "this INSANE LAW" and "one of the real bats**t extremists behind it!" Not surprisingly the Indiana law passed when Vice President Mike Pence was governor, and pro-abortion activists have been fighting against it ever since.

Not to be outdone, Danielle Campoamor — a Bustle columnist who's written for the likes of the New York Times, NBC News, and Teen Vogue — also tweeted her disdain for SCOTUS hearing the case:

"Dear Scotus," her tweet reads. "Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. Fetal tissue is not a person. But I am. And I matter more than fetal tissue. Signed, people who have miscarriages and abortions."

More from the Daily Wire:

Most recently, Lizz Winstead's Lady Parts Justice League launched a pro-abortion comedy tour to teach women that promoting abortion could be "fun." The group would often disrupt sidewalk counselors who were out to educate young women on the cruelty of abortion by doing obnoxious stunts like blaring Beyoncé "to overpower the chants from the stunned anti-abortion protesters and energize the enthusiastic clinic staff." Other stunts involved just plain shouting over pro-lifers and making jokes.

Should the Supreme Court decline to hear the case on unborn burial laws, another law on fetal homicide out of Alabama could also challenge the validity of Roe v. Wade. The law stemmed from a recent case in which a man was convicted of double-homicide for murdering his wife, Jessie Livell Phillips, when she was eight months pregnant. Upon his conviction, the jury cited the 2006 law defining a child in utero as a "person."

After being sentenced to death by the court, the convicted murderer appealed the decision to the state Supreme Court, alleging that unborn children do not have the same protections as those who are born. The court rejected his case, with Justice Tom Parker declaring it a "logical fallacy" for the government to declare homicide in the case of a man murdering a pregnant woman but not when a woman gets an abortion — particularly a late-term abortion, which can be done up to the moment a child is born.
