Trevor Noah and Samantha Bee on reproductive rights for today's Women's Marches

As MSNBC reported today, Hundreds Of Women's Rights Marches Planned Nationwide Against Texas Abortion Law, but I'm waiting until they're all finished and the news departments of the networks and local stations have digested the story to share videos of the protests. Instead, I'm sharing two "ha-ha, only serious" takes on the issue beginning with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah asking What Happens When a State Bans Abortions? - If You Don’t Know, Now You Know.

Texas’s new abortion law is the most restrictive in the country. Here’s why banning abortions isn’t an effective (or safe) way to lower the abortion rate.
None of this comes as a surprise to me, so I'm saddened but not disappointed. It's also the bad news. Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has some good news for reproductive rights in New Jersey Is Paving The Way For Reproductive Rights.

We love...New Jersey? As shocking as it may be, the Garden State has been planting seeds to ensure that Roe V. Wade always thrives within its borders. Sam breaks out the celebratory pork rolls with NJ Governor Phil Murphy and Kaitlyn Wojtowicz, VP Public Affairs at Planned Parenthood Access Fund of NJ.

This piece was produced by Amber Watson with Annie Kopp and edited by Daphne Gomez-Mena.
I wish Governor Murphy, Planned Parenthood of New Jersey, and all of the bill's sponsors and supporters good luck and success in passing the bill next month so the Governor can sign it.

Enough serious business, even if I filtered it through comedy. Stay tuned for more on the winners of the Primetime Emmy Awards, probably about "Saturday Night Live," the next biggest winner with eight Emmy Awards, as the Sunday entertainment feature.
