Tosh.0 Thinks Abortion is Funny

Tosh.0 on Abortion

If you can bear to actually watch this whole video, you will see that Daniel Tosh, star of Comedy Central’s Tosh.O clearly thinks abortion is something to laugh about. Not only is he joking and laughing about the slaughter of innocent children, but he is clearly making a mockery of those of us who have pro-life beliefs, such as Marion Jones and her fellow Until Abortion Ends supporters.

Some of the questions Tosh asks:

“How do you know you don’t like it unless you’ve tried it?”

“What if the doctor told you your baby was going to be really ugly?”

“What has abortion ever done to you?”

Here are some answers for you Mr. Tosh

I don’t have to commit murder to know that it’s wrong. Its bad enough that we have to live with the knowledge that every day 3,500 innocent children are killed, without having it trivialized by people like you.

You joke about “ugly” babies, but is it funny that 90% of babies that test positive for Downs in the womb are aborted? Because that’s the reality in America right now. Babies that aren’t perfect can be quietly done away with.

And finally, what has abortion done to me? Well, because of abortion there almost wasn’t a “me.” I was the fourth child of a teen mother, who seriously considered aborting me. Instead, birth mother chose life and I was adopted along with two of my siblings by an amazing family, who sacrificed so much to give me all that they could.

But Tosh’s support for abortion doesn’t end on the show, his Comedy Central webpage has it’s own tumblr for items tagged “abortion” and here are some examples of what Tosh thinks is funny:

Pro-life supporters should tell Daniel Tosh and Comedy Central that abortion isn’t funny. I urge you to send a message to Comedy Central, that the slaughter of innocent children is not fodder for comedy. And as for me, I’m vowing to give up Tosh.O – UNTIL ABORTION ENDS.

    Oh come on, you can’t take that guy seriously he jokes about everything.

      And furthermore, you are only letting him win even more by doing this as he probably loves getting a rise out of people.

    Seriously! It’s not funny! Do you want to take on raising a retard? How about the rape baby? It’s okay to ‘kill’ them bc they’ll probably be rapists too. I get it!! Rapists are worse than murderers! Finally…. Some clarity! Thank you!

    • Hovish13

      Excuse me, but your use of the word “retard” is very hurtful to people who suffer from mental, physical, and cognitive impairments. Please consider ending your use of the term. Your statement shows your lack of respect for those who aren’t born ‘perfect’ or ‘normal.’ I dare say you’ve never spent a lot of time with these people who you’ve labeled as inferior, because if you had, you would know that they are some of the sweetest, nonjudgmental, and cheerful people in the world.

      Also, are you saying it’s okay to kill someone because they might possibly be a rapist in the future? Guess what? Not all murderers/rapists/criminals have parents who did/do the same thing. Let’s just kill everyone then, because we all have the potential to be rapists and murderers.

      • Cotehanger

        How DARE you call retards inferior! I love retards!!! I am highly offended by your utter disregard for common sense or intelligence…. That’s a lie and I would apologize but you don’t matter.

        P.S. I do see that we are in agreement on many issues and for that, I thank you. This should mean a lot since we have a close personal relationship…have my baby. I love you.

      • Cotehanger

        I ‘like’d your comment as many times as I could because stupid people are funny. Don’t get me wrong….I love stupid people…..now will you have my baby?

    Tosh makes fun of everything. He doesn’t say things cause he believes them, he says it to push buttons.

    It can work if you’re mean and funny I suppose,  but usually he’s just mean. 

  • Anonymous

    yeah…there are lots of funny things to poke fun at and abortion is not one of them.  This is the difference between a funny comedian (knows not to go there) and a non-funny idiot.  Amazing how he would get slaughtered for joking about race, homo-sexuality but abortion jokes are considered to be non-offensive…maybe he could listen to women and men share their regrets about aborting their children at “Silent No More” and see if he still thinks his jokes are funny… http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org/

    • Anonymous

      He has joked about all of those things though…he pokes fun at just about everything.

    I’m not trying to diminish the tragedy of abortion at all, but it’s called being “an equal opportunity offender”. I’m sure Tosh has done the same to pro-abortion-choicers, or is planning to at some point. He has even made fun of feminists, black people, rape, and those who are LGBT.

    I’m not defending his disgusting and disturbing choices for comedy, but trying to help you see that he makes fun of everything and everyone, even – and especially – issues considered controversial and taboo. Just as 12angry_men said, by being offended by what Tosh said and did, you are playing right into his hands. He wants people to be offended. He wants a reaction out of you. Controversy is what provides fodder for his show. Therefore, just like when dealing with a childish sibling, if you don’t make a big deal out of this, he’ll probably stop.

    Most of Comedy Central’s programs are equal opportunity offenders. While I don’t particularly care for Comedy Central, and think most of their programming is disgusting, they don’t really discriminate between what issues they make fun of and what they don’t. Everything is fair game to them, and they take every opportunity to make fun of every issue. While the comedy itself is discriminating, they do it to everyone. That doesn’t make it right, not under any circumstances. It’s a childish attitude that leads them to think they can make anything funny, even when it’s not. However, at least their choices on what to make fun of don’t come from actual discrimination.

    When comedians make light about serious issues, sometimes its hard to tell how much of what they say they actually believe.  A lot of what they say is just to make people laugh.  Tosh, like many comedians, wants to push buttons with irreverent beliefs and they’re always trying to find new ways to go over the top. 
     
    I agree that abortion is not something that should be joked about but the fact that he was able to joke about it and the audience liked it it says one thing about society. 
             
    People are so desensitized about what abortion is that these kind of jokes are acceptable.  To many people abortion represents women’s rights and sexual freedom and the fact that an unborn child gets killed just gets downplayed by them and it gets downplayed in the media. 

    Society has been blinded to what abortion really is that’s why it’s so easy to joke about it.  Fortuantely more and more people are coming around these days. This is due to groups like Live Action that keep fighting with the truth and teaching people what abortion really is.  Just remember, people may joke about abortion but at the end of the day the truth is on the pro-life side and people are beginning to see that.

    • Toox

      Stop saying unborn child. A grouping of cells that if removed from its host will die immediately is not a child.

      • Reagle777

        wow seriously? the group of cells argument? cmon buddy.The phrase “just a clump of cells” is meaningless – at what point does a human being cease to be a “clump of cells”? We are all “clumps of cells” – just larger than we were when we were in our mothers’ wombs! The fetus is a genetically distinct human person – even as a single cell, that fetus is alive and is a person with the complete genetic information of the adult. The only thing that is required to allow that fetus to grow into an adult human is time and nutrition.

          Aww, have a cry. That doesn’t justify forcing women to give birth, you’re sick in the head if you think that is humane.

  • Jay E.

    I saw this on Jill Stanek’s blog yesterday, and I thought Marion made him look like a complete fool. :D

  • Pgballer12

    I saw this and I almost wonder if he is mocking pro-choice views with this.  I mean, this kind of humor only shows the ridiculousness of the pro-choice belief and not the other way around.  I know he grew up in a Christian home (obviously digressed from that) but maybe he still retained some viewpoints and is making a satire out of those who are pro-choice?

      God saved me from abortion for a reason, and cowardly attacks by anonymous pro-aborts will not stop me from achieving that purpose! 

      • Justin_trubble

         abortion; it’s a choice.
        tosh making fun of it; it’s a joke.
         make a choice to keep your own kid, abort, or adopt
        . make a choice to laugh, change the channel or cry about an issue you have no control over.
            religion will always try to find an excuse for control. it’s a personal choice, not nessisarilly your choice for the world
        personally, i don’t know you but i’m glad you’re alive, i hope life has been good to you.

        – maybe let’s start talking about important issues like our slavery to capitalizm and that over 95% of terminal illnesses are directly caused by the monetary enslavement that we are all to distracted by consumerism to realize or talk about. nevermind the crimes affilliated with money. inflation high, salery low. people starving in our citys, church officials raping young boys daily. obama? don’t get me started, what promisis has he actually lived up to? troops, still there oh and he’s planning to send more. dimocracy? nope, just so they can put a walmart and mcdicks in the desert. u.s. wants money, oil, private prison sales, the fear of god in your heart. and why? so they can throw a bunch of meaningless isues like abortion at us so we don’t discus important issues, so we blog about some guy making dead baby jokes.

        how do you get a baby in a jar? blender.
        how do you get baby out of jar? nacho chips.

        …I am not agreeing with what the previous comment had said, it was a personal attack and I do not think there is ever a need for something like that…I will not be forming an opinion, only make a point…please do not bring faith into the matter of Abortion…

        God saved you from being aborted
        God intervened and prevented your mom from aborting you.
        There is no free will if God intervenes.
        There IS free will though.
        Because there IS free will, God does not intervene.
        If God does not intervene, God did not stop your mom from having an abortion.
        Therefore, God did not save you.

    How stupid is this chick. You just proved pro choice. Your irresponsible teen mom had the abilty to “Choose”. That’s what pro choice is. Its probably a hard decision but it should be a personal decision. Not the idiots the are pushing their religious beliefs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/DeannaMarieCandler Deanna Marie Candler

      The “choice” in pro choice is abortion, not adoption. There shouldn’t BE a choice that allows women to kill their innocent children!

    Abortion has been around for thousands of years and it will be around long after all of us are gone. Make all the laws you like people will still find a way to get rid an unwanted pregnancy. 

    • Guest

      Rape has been around for thousands of years.  By your logic, outlawing it is wrong because men evidently still find ways to do it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.stites Aaron Stites

        People normally don’t choose to be raped. Abortion is a choice. A choice by the pregnant woman and not the state ,church, or federal government. Most pro lifers are pro life because you all believe in God but not everyone does or not everyone believes in the same God and if their religion or beliefs say it’s okay for them to terminate a pregnancy than you should not restrict their rights just like they don’t try to force you to have an abortion. It’s real simple. Just stay out of other peoples lives.

  • Reagle777

    Some things you just shouldnt joke about…the killing of unborn babies is one of them….I seriously cant believe the barbaric posts from some of these people. Every single one of your pro-abortion arguments can be debunked. Open your eyes people..instead of clinging to your selfish ideas, think about that innocent baby that you support the killing of, and have a heart….We all have the right to LIFE.

    • Reagle777

      although after watching it, I do think it showed how weak and ignorant the pro-choice argument is.

  • Green10242003

    If you get an abortion it’s not a “life” your not murdering anything! I don’t have children in my balls your so ignorant! If you got raped you had no job and got pregnant you gonna have the child and risk them having a bad life with you or someone else? Abortion should be last option but I’m tired of pro lifers saying that it murder? What are you talking about? Your not a doctor? But it not murder if it in the first three months of pregnancy because it’s not a LIVING thing you people needa stop worring about tosh and look at the millions of other much more important problems in the world instead of peoples personal business!

  • Ozzy720

    I’m not sure anyone noticed but for all the irreverence with which Tosh treats the subject he did give pro-lifers about 5 minutes of prime real estate on a hit TV show. I think Tosh is actually pro-life. I can’t imagine a pro-choice person giving free time to articulate young pro-lifers and indirectly promoting a pro-life movement. See past the words to the actions.

    During The Early Stages Of Gestation A Fetus Hasnt Even Developed A Legitiment Nervous System Or A Functioning Brain So Its Not Like They Are Aware Or Enduring Pain How Can It Be Murder If Your Not Even Born Yet?! Abortion is A Disscion That Shouldnt Be Critisized By Anyone… I Beleive Abortion is Wrong If It Is Used As A Birth Control.However There Are Many Benefits The Fetuses Can Be Used In Stem Cell Reaserch To Save A Life, And if a PersonDoesnt Want A Child Wouldnt It Be More Humane To Terminate A Pregnacy Then to have Given Them up For Adoption When There Already Thousands of Orphaned Children In The World ?! Daniel Tosh Is A Funny And Sarcastic Son Of A Bitch With Freedom of Speech And Jokes Are JOKES there not intended to Offend People So get The Pole Outta Your Ass And Stop Taking Everything Literal

    • mythought

      You need to read this well-researched paper about when babies actually CAN feel pain:  n fact, there is a steadily increasing body of medical evidence and literature supporting the conclusion that a fetus may feel pain from around 11 to 13 weeks, or even as early as 5.5 weeks.  http://www.aul.org/2008/03/fetal-pain-legislation-women-deserve-to-know/

      • fiona64

        Sorry, but that’s flat-out bullshit. The myelin sheath isn’t even developed until approximately 22-25 weeks’ gestation, at which point abortion absent medical necessity is a moot point. Without the myelin sheath, there is no pain response. Simple reflex is not the same thing (pithed frogs will demonstrate reflexes, despite being unable to feel anything).

        I can’t help but wondering whether basic biology is even *taught* anymore.

  • Sophia Hale

    hahah Daniel Tosh is FUCKING hilarious and all you mother fuckers that think otherwise simple because he speaks his mind , and jokes about a heavy topic to get people to take it less seriously need to take the fucking stick out of your tight assholes.
    PRO CHOICE all the way . a women should most defiantly have the RIGHT to choose what she wants to do to her body,  and if she wants to have a child. 
    Taking that away from a women is taking away her rights . 

    I <3 DANIEL TOSH and his abortion jokes :) ahaha
