Tuesday on The Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore went after conservatives who want to defund Planned Parenthood, accusing them of “stranding millions of women without health care.” The comedian linked the Center for Medical Progress – the group behind the release of a series of videos appearing to show the organization trafficking fetal body parts – to ISIS: “And the group leading the charge against Planned Parenthood, Center For Medical Progress, the most ironically named group since the ISIS center for women's literacy, says – thank you – Planned Parenthood is profiting off of fetal tissue donation.”

Wilmore joked about the fact that Republicans have tried to defund Planned Parenthood on occasions the last eight years: “Another failed attempt to defund Planned Parenthood by the right? This is the eighth vote to defund them in eight years. Two more and they get a free breast exam taken away from a low-income woman.”
