Jesus Recruits Sarah Silverman to Spread his Word on Abortion

There's a lot of things I'd ask Jesus if I met the guy in person, like why

 curse some people with not liking cilantro, what would his Cliff game choices be if I gave him Oprah, Psy and Steve Buscemi and what are his thoughts on Lena Dunham's constant nudity in Girls? But kudos to Sarah Silverman who dared to ask, "Jesus, when does life begin?"

In a random late night bootie call visit, Jesus approached Sarah to be his spokesperson. He was feeling pretty bummed about how people use his name for intolerance and oppression. After a NCIS marathon, seems Silverman took J-Bones up on his request and started to share the harsh reality of women's access to reproductive rights, i.e. abortion. "Comedy-expert," Laura Ingraham may not have appreciated the banter with Jesus, but I found Silverman's straightforward historical context and tell-it-like it is storytelling refreshing and captivating. I also loved how she showed what a double standard it was to legislate vaginas but not penises. And to give our own fun fact, Oklahoma state Sen. Constance Johnson (D) actually tried to get this penis probe added to the "personhood" movement, which gave all eggs and semen the same rights as American citizens to make a point about how skewed legislature controls women's bodies but not men's.

What's even better is that Silverman also asks you to carry on the word of Jesus by signing up with www.LadyPartsJustice.com to keep up to date on the level of personal pussy power in the US. There will even be a series of events through “V To Shining V” throughout the country where women can come together on these issues. So thanks for setting the record straight Sarah, oh and by the way - awesome shirt.
