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.

Federal Judge Issues Ruling to Allow Elective Abortions in Texas Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic
The abortion industry will continue during coronavirus.
A federal judge has issued an injunction against Texas Governor Greg Abbott after he banned elective abortions from taking place during the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush, made the ruling in Austin on Monday banning state officials from preventing abortions in Texas. Abortion providers will be able to perform abortions without restriction at least temporarily because of the ruling.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote in a legal brief that the prohibition on elective abortions was needed to “preserve desperately needed medical supplies for the health care professionals combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”
“Medical professionals are in dire need of supplies, and abortion providers who refuse to follow state law are demonstrating a clear disregard for Texans suffering from this medical crisis,” Paxton said.
Judge Yeakel claimed that the constitutional right for women to snuff out the lives of babies the womb trumps all public health concerns during an unprecedented crisis.
“Regarding a woman’s right to a pre-fetal-viability abortion, the Supreme Court has spoken clearly,” Yeakel wrote. “There can be no outright ban on such a procedure. This court will not speculate on whether the Supreme Court included a silent ‘except-in-a-national-emergency clause’ in its previous writings on the issue.”
Because of Judge Yeakel’s decision, the ban on elective abortions in Texas is off until at least April 13 when a court hearing will be held over the phone.
Big League Politics reported last week on the leftist hysteria that occurred after the states of Texas and Ohio announced their temporary ban on elective abortions:
States like Ohio and Texas have enacted orders to cease all non-essential surgeries.
NBC DFW highlights that these moves “have unleashed a new battle over access to abortions during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statewide order on Sunday March 22, 2020 to limit the use of medical supplies hospitals will need as they plan for rising numbers infections resulting from the Wuhan virus. The order prevents hospitals from carrying out surgeries unless the patient experiences an immediate risk for “serious adverse medical consequences or death, as determined by the patient’s physician.” …
Republican Attorney General Dave Yost sent letters to Ohio clinics on Friday, March 20, 2020 ordering them to stop all “non-essential” surgical abortions. Yost wrote that the procedures are in violation of a March 17 order enacted by the state health director.
Clinics, pro-baby killing groups, and some state elected officials criticized this move, claiming that abortions are both essential and time-sensitive.
“During an emergency, there is always a chance of government overreach under the guise of `security’ or adherence to `law and order,’” the Ohio Democratic Women’s Legislative Caucus declared in a statement. “In times of national crisis, we have seen egregious acts that have circumvented our freedoms before. And make no mistake – we are seeing them today.”
The baby-murder industry will continue unabated, thanks to the activist judiciary, even if it means putting the public at serious risk of catching coronavirus.
