Bill Maher Jokes Morning-After Pill Debate [Video]

Maher picked at the debate behind HPV vaccines and Plan-B.

Bill Maher recently took to his talk to show to share his thoughts on the GOP’s opposition of the morning-after pill. He’s always been the type to make a joke out of anything, but he may have pushed the wrong buttons when talking about the touchy subject.

“Stop saying Republicans are waging a war on women,” he said on his show. “It’s not women they hate, it’s women having sex that doesn’t end with a baby popping out.”

He wasn’t done there as he went on to continue joking Republicans.

“Sex in their mind is for pro-creation, not recreation,” he added. ” The same way the G-spot is seen as just another liberal hoax that needs more study.”

He went on to talk about teenage sex and the morning-after pill. He jokingly explained that the pill is easy to buy by saying “any American can now buy over-the-counter just like milk and ammo.”

Before you knew it, Bill Maher was calling out the GOP for their thoughts on “sluts” for preventing things like pregnancy.

“Things like Plan-B and the HPV vaccine are bad because they remove God’s natural intended punishments for sluts who put out,” he said, speaking about the thoughts of conservatives . ” A) being saddled with a baby you don’t want or B) stricken with a horrible disease. You don’t think that’s how these people think?”

Maher received plenty of laughs for his jokes during the show, but he’s now being criticized for taking things too far. His comments have caused quite the stir on the web, but he’s always made critical comments on the show.

Sometimes it can be hard to tell if he’s being serious or just poking fun at heavy subjects. Nevertheless, his audience got a kick out of the entire situation.

The morning-after pill debate will continue on through discussions between politicians in Washington, D.C., and there’s no telling when Bill Maher will chime in once again.

    Republicans are upset….. because they are afraid of the truth…….get Religion out of politics…..

    This article cherry-picks quotes from the monologue and intentionally spins and misrepresents what he said. Why am I not surprised? Yes, it was frank comedy. But it's also very, very true. There is no logical reason for the GOP to be opposed to this. They are simply because they fear promiscuity, demonize sexual education in favor of abstinence, and are trying desperately to tie "recreational sex" to abortion rate. He's 100% right. The author of this article knows it, so it hits close to home. I don't agree with Maher all the time, but this time he's speaking the blatant, honest truth and exposing B.S.

  3. Martha Von Der Gathen

    Bill Maher is the smartest and funniest man in the US.

  4. Mike Mayernik

    Watched the show and read this article twice and can't see anywhere where he went too far. 100% accurate as far as I can tell.

  5. Jim Stovall

    I am pro birth control! Our culture has so many people eons behind reality that they need to be viewed through the scope of scorn. I have heard him speak casually in what he might think is humorous terms about people with Tourettes Syndrome, which is a serious illness and not a subject for humor. If he wants to put the stick to serious issues which are republican substitutes for broaching the needs of a modern world, I applaud his efforts. But a painful illness is off limits.

    Bill has it right. Many conservative Republicans think this way. They are from another planet.

  7. Michael R Norman

    I watch Bill Maher all the time, and find he tells it like it is. Really, really IS. The only people I can figure would be upset with that is the GOP.

    Bill Maher the repubs worst nightmare. a man smart enough to see through most of their b.s. and calling them on it! If they don't like what he says, they need to join the modern world and act like they know what century it is! The repubs like to complain about how women are treated like second class citizens in OTHER countries, then they do the same thing.
    to them here.Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, etc., comedians yes, stupid no.

    Michael R Norman

    He's a political "comic" who appeals to a certain, shall we say "simple minded" liberal base. Much like you and Mike.

  10. Erica Mathis

    I don't know any who think this way. I know many how value life above all else and as we know liberals hate defenders of life.

  11. Erica Mathis

    Are you kidding? Conservatives laugh their ass at this nitwit! Smart?Bill Maher??? This winner thought Brazil got off oil in the 70's! Youtube it.

  12. Clay Bryant

    Bill Maher is the primest example on earth for birth control.The morning after pill wouldn't work for his mom.She was probably pukin' all day long the day after he was conceived. He truly has a face only a mother could love and truthfully, I doubt that even happened.

  13. Dave Holohan

    I couldn't have said it better myself, but I would rather get religion out of humans.

  14. Joseph Arnone

    people like maher are some of the reasons the morning after pill was invented.brought to you by a person with a reason.

  15. Kevin Saunooke

    Bill Maher , even if I was against abortion, had I known your mother and she was pregnant with u, not only would I have been for abortion I would have performed it myself! ugly ugly little gay man! and by the way, audience is hand picked by Maher program so all r sheep and love anything this as s clown says… dummies!

  16. Thomas Dixon Debra

    Speak on it!!! The man is telling the truth, just take the damn pill, stop having these babies n getting on welfare, continue ur education so u can teach ur kids!!!!

  17. Dan Balchen

    He wasn't "joking." I saw this. He was doing at the end of the show he calls "New Rules," which to me is one of the best parts. It was commentary. He was, correctly, pointing out the rights hypocrisy. He was using the rights own words against them, that is where the laughter came in. But, even so, he made a valid and shameful point and was calling out the right on it. Good for Bill.

  18. Dan Balchen

    And now there are comments on how Mr. Maher's mother should have aborted him. Now, please notice, they didn't add anything to this debate, just made abortion references. I believe then, this has proven Bill's point.

  19. Kathleen Pack

    Donna Myers-Lenning And you're stupid for calling Martha stupid. If you don't like Maher, don't watch him. Simple as that.

  20. La Ronda King

    THE BIBLE SAYS GO FORTH AND MULTIPLE NOT KILL BABIES… MOST COLLEGE CAMPUS OFFER FREE CHILDCARE, GIVE THE DAMN JOBS TO THE QUALIFIED PEOPLE, JUDGE BY CHARACTER NOT BY COLOR OF THE SKIN, HOW MANY BLACK RECEPTIONIST DOI U SEE ? THEY R BAD FOR THE COMPANY IMAGE, WHITES HIRE HISPANICS AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, IRAQ STORE OWNER HIRE HISPANIC AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, HISPANICS GIVE AFFORADABLE HOUSING AND JOBS TO HISPANICS AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS , OUR BLACK CHILDREN WERE NOT ALLOWED TO ENROLL OR GET ON THE WAITING LIST UNTIL MAY, BUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS R ALLOWED TO ADD THEIR NAME TO A GAS AND ELECTRIC BILL AND SEND THEIR KIDS TO SCHOOLS IN SAN DIEGO AND THEY REGISTER MARCH 1, SO BOARD OF EDUCATION BETTER TALK TO MY 2 DAUGHTER'S LAWYER AND IF WAS PROVE BY THE PRINCIPLE OF THE SCHOOL, HE IS A GOOD WITNESS. SO BILL MAHER PUT ON SOME BLACK MAKE UP, KISS MAKE GOOD MAKE-UP, AND PUT ON A NATURAL LIVE BLACKS LIFE FOR A MONTH WITH A COLLEGE DEGREE, AND THEN TALK ABOUT DOING AWAY WITH A LIFE EVERYONE ISN'T HANDED A JOB WE WERE NOT WE FOUGHT FOR OURS WE FIGHT WHITES NOT TO FIRE QUALIFIED BLACK TEACHERS NOT TO STUDY FROM BOOKS THAT R MAKING BLACKS LOOK LIKE THE DUMBEST PARENTS THAT EVER WERE CREATED, EVEN THOUGH WE WERE GOOD PARENTS TO WHITES ON THE PLANTATIONS….

  21. Tom McBride

    Äs far as you can tell? Thanks for clarifying you ignorant comment. Also I don't think gays can made a valid comment on abortion.

  22. Tom McBride

    I don't think gays are qualified to comment on abortion.

  23. Bob Regan

    The problem is that the GOP and those who "Hate in the name of the Lord" can't stand it when they're forced to look at themselves.

  24. The Fortunate Few

    he said the sl..t word (oh dear!)

    note to Republicans from Dynamo Hum (Frank Zappa):
    "I gotta spot that gets me hot, but you ain't been oi it".

  25. The Fortunate Few

    Bill Maher is the kinda guy who'd actually give a glory hole a second thought (especially if there was a video screen with someone like Sophia Vergara dancing, right above it) We've all gotta a measure of Neanderthal in us fellas. Some more than others. Bill just lets his 'freak flag fly' on television.

  26. Diane Kaczka

    I agree…I personally don't like him, but I think he was joking about the morning after pill because what the heck does he know about womens issues/rights. He is not a woman and cannot relate so making fun of a situation he doesn't believe in is his bread and butter. Plus he's an angry individual and spewing his comments is therapy for him. Some people find him funny because some of the stuff he says is honest, hes just mean and nasty about it…but you think he cares. Nahhh!!…I do what Kathleen said I don't watch him, there fore I don't care.

  27. Thomas Dixon Debra

    Rhondie, I understand what the bible says but look at our youth, no role models,no morals, no respect ant they teach the how to throw up gang signs before a b c's. these people are having kids when they have no jobs no education with they baby daddies in jail or else where an on the system, now I have no problem with getting help from the system but it by no means to live your life on! They stay on this system all their lives and repeat it generation after generation

  28. Thomas Dixon Debra

    I'm not making this a race issue cause its not, hell they all having babies!!!! I'm referring to the morning after pill!!!! I SUPPORT it!!!!

  29. Chris Rose

    Hey Kathleen, why don't you stop calling people stupid. Who made you the comment police?

  30. Chris Rose

    Tom, come out of your cave. What the hell does being gay have to do with having an intelligent opinion. What are you, an idiot?

  31. Chris Rose

    You are the ignorant, homophobic bigot. Just shows your lack of intelligence. MORON!

  32. Terry Yardas

    And Jesus wept…not only for Bill, but for everyone who is not wise enough to realize how sick his thinking is. God forgive them, for they know not what they do.

  33. Mic Lawler

    A vile little pompous moron whose jaundiced attitude is only surpassed by his ignorance.

  34. Lauren Siegel

    In other words, what Maher said contradicts your personal beliefs so you are willing to contradict your personal beliefs if it means he isn't around to contradict your beliefs. You are clearly one of those people that shout for free speech for only those that agree with you and everyone else should be forced into silence.

  35. Lauren Siegel

    Wow! You sound really intelligent. Can't actually dispute his comments so you attack his mother and physical appearance (as if you are an Adonis). You should know that ad hominem attacks are logical fallacies.

  36. Lauren Siegel

    @La Ronda – It doesn't matter a single bit what your particular book of fairy tales says about anything. Because we don't live in a theocracy. We live in a Constitutional Republic. If you want to live in a theocracy, you can move to Iraq.

    And FYI, the bible actually says that if a husband suspects his wife of cheating after she becomes pregnant, she should drink abortion causing plants and if the baby is legit, it won't be aborted, but if she cheated, she will miscarry and then of course be stoned for adultery. So actually, the bible does support abortion if the baby was conceived outside of marriage. Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28.

  37. Lauren Siegel

    Ohhh! So freedom of speech should only be allowed for the ones that agree with YOU. Got it.

  38. Lauren Siegel

    In other words, you are against abortion except for those that disagree with you. There's a word for people like you. Can you figure out which word it is?

  39. Clay Bryant

    I only commented on his looks and don't say much about what he says. I've listened to him for about half an hour of my life and don't think I could learn much from him in a month of Sundays.I believe in 100% free speach and if I didn't I wouldn't find out about the Bill Mahers in life.Your assumption…ie "clearly one" could start me on another…………….
