A video featuring former children’s show host and pretend scientist Bill Nye video has resurfaced on social media, this time angrily telling the audience that a fertilized egg is not human, and that abortion is about individual rights.
In a rambling, off script video, Nye told viewers that eggs are fertilized “a lot” and it should not be used as the standard for the beginning of life.
“If you say, ‘When an egg is fertilized, it therefor has the same rights as an individual,’ who are you going to sue? Whom are you going to imprison?” Nye asked, making the common leftist fallacy of assuming that pro-life Americans want to see women put in prison for something as heartbreaking as a miscarriage, even if it is only weeks into a pregnancy.
Nye went on to tell pro-lifers that they “literally, apparently literally don’t know what you’re talking about.”
He went on to argue that because scientists were responsible for using microscopes to see an egg fertilized by a sperm only the scientific and medical community is fit to have an opinion on abortion.
“You wouldn’t have that famous shot, or shots, where the sperm are bumping up against the egg, you wouldn’t have that without science,” said Nye. “Let me do that again, let me just pull back. It’s just, it’s hard not to get frustrated with this, everybody.”
Nye went on to add that “Nobody likes abortion, but you can’t tell somebody what to do.”
However, to those who logically consider abortion to be the murder of an unborn human being, it would seem apparent that this is what the government and society already does with laws against murder.
The so-called scientist, who only has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, concluded that he “would encourage you to not tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are in nobody’s best interest.”
“My mother was a woman, just for example. They’re everywhere.”
Apparently Nye does not appreciate that his mother chose life in this “example.”
Women deserve more reproductive rights, not fewer. And scientific facts should inform our laws, says Bill Nye The Science Guy.

Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
