Comedian Chris Rock Calls Abortion "Beautiful," Set to Host Oscars (Steven Ertelt, February 14, 2005,

Comedian Chris Rock is the subject of national controversy following recent remarks he made during a comedy routine. Rock, slated to host the Oscars next month, promoted abortion in a profane rant, according to a Drudge Report article.

"Abortion, it's beautiful, it's beautiful abortion is legal. I love going to an abortion rally to pick up women, cause you know they are f------," Rock said during his club routine.

Dorinda Bordlee, an attorney with Americans United for Life, has seen the comedy routine and says it is meant as a parody.

"Rock's routine is actually a parody which uses humor to make the point of how legalized abortion facilitates the sexual exploitatation of women," Bordlee told

"Chris Rock uses the effective tool of satire to show that abortion on demand has made women more into sex objects than we've ever been in the history of the world," Bordlee explains.

In fact, Rock talks about women who he says flippant choose abortion, when he opines, "It costs $5,000 to deliver a baby. It costs $1,500 to have an abortion. Face it: It's either Jimmy or cable."

While Rock may understand the concept that pro-life advocates have been presenting for years, the politically charged comedian still backs abortions.

No matter your politics, your humor is conservative.

If Rock had been allowed to rant, and storm side to side on the stage in his typical comedy act, the Hollywood libs would have fled the Kodak.
