Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies?

Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies?

Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs
are fertilized than become humans. Eggs get fertilized and by that I mean sperm get accepted
by ova a lot. But that’s not all you need. You have to attach to the uterine wall, the
inside of a womb, a woman’s womb. But if you’re going to hold that as a standard,
that is to say if you’re going to say when an egg is fertilized it’s therefore has
the same rights as an individual, then whom are you going to sue? Whom are you going to
imprison? Every woman who’s had a fertilized egg pass through her? Every guy who’s sperm
has fertilized an egg and then it didn’t become a human? Have all these people failed
you? It’s just a reflection of a deep scientific lack of understanding and you literally or
apparently literally don’t know what you’re talking about. And so when it comes to women’s
right with respect to their reproduction, I think you should leave it to women. This
is really – you cannot help but notice. I’m not the first guy to observe this, you
have a lot of men of European descent passing these extraordinary laws based on ignorance.
Sorry you guys. I know it was written or your interpretation of a book written 5,000 years
ago, 50 centuries ago, makes you think that when a man and a woman have sexual intercourse
they always have a baby. That’s wrong and so to pass laws based on that belief is inconsistent
with nature. I mean it’s hard not to get frustrated with this everybody. And I know
nobody likes abortion, okay. But you can’t tell somebody what to do. I mean she has rights
over this, especially if she doesn’t like the guy that got her pregnant. She doesn’t
want anything to do with your genes, get over it, especially if she were raped and all this.
So it’s very frustrating on the outside, on the other side. We have so many more important
things to be dealing with. We have so many more problems to squander resources on this
argument based on bad science, on just lack of understanding. It’s very frustrating. You wouldn’t know
how big a human egg was if it weren’t for microscopes, if it weren’t for scientists,
medical researchers looking diligently. You wouldn’t know the process. You wouldn’t
have that shot, the famous shot or shots where the sperm are bumping up against the egg.
You wouldn’t have that without science. So then to claim that you know the next step
when you obviously don’t is trouble. Let me do that again. Let me just pull back. At
some point we have to respect the facts. Recommending or insisting on abstinence has been completely
ineffective. Just being objective here. Closing abortion clinics. Closing, not giving women
access to birth control has not been an effective way to lead to healthier societies. I mean
I think we all know that. And I understand that you have deeply held beliefs and it really
is ultimately out of respect for people, in this case your perception of unborn people.
I understand that. But I really encourage you to look at the facts. And I know people
are now critical of the expression fact based but what’s wrong with that? So I just really
encourage you to not tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are
in nobody’s best interest. Just really be objective about this. We have other problems
to solve everybody. Come on. Come on. Let’s work together.

  1. The act of Abortion is unconstitutional. Take away all the abortion clinics and than I'll be satisfied with the direction this country is going in. A naturally unsuccessful pregnancy is not rightfully comparable to abortion. Sounds much like a murderer saying that he was, " Just directly causing something that happens all the time." Also, calling people that disagree with you unintelligent only manipulates the weak minded. This is what Evolution has done to your heart. Congratulations your soul has evolved to stone.

  2. The issue is that it's being used now for a standard method of birth control AND the successful goal is to give a woman the power to have the baby decapitated on it's way to delivery out the birth canal. Or should we call it Death Canal??

  3. It is easy to claim that men and women are equal but in reality, this is never true! The idea of abstinence is not just to avoid pregnancy but to avoid the implications that may arise especially on women! According to science, women that have sexual intercourse ( almost 99% of American women) do not only run the risk of getting pregnant but are vulnerable to withholding male dna in their brains through sperm! That is why women are supposed to have only one sexual partner! These DNAs result in different behavior portraying behaviors of past male partners!

  4. The issue is also about replacement. When a birthrate of a nation drops beneath 2.1 the existing people are not replaced and the population declines. And so it becomes important to somehow encourage women to have enough babies to replace the existing population.

  5. I know an expert carpenter that says Bill Nye is an idiot, I think the carpenter is right, why? Cause he is an expert carpenter, and experts are always right about what they say regardless of what field they are talking about.
    Does this sound stupid? Well, of course it does, just as stupid as believing Nye understands logic or bioethics enough to make at least one good non-faulty argument on the subject just cause he knows other things. At least 5 fallacies and didn't mention the word human when it was most appropriate, very conveniently, what a waste of a brain.

  6. When I was only 17 years old, my crazy aunt Judy began yelling at me for being skinny. I told her that there was nothing wrong with being skinny and she said, "everything is wrong with being skinny if you're a woman! I used to be skinny, but then I became a woman." Then she kept on taking me to the doctors nonstop just so they could put me on Depakote so I could gain weight. Judy just wanted me to gain weight because she thinks that's what all women should look like. I even told her that I began getting my period at 12 years old and she said, "that's not enough. If you're a woman, you have to be unhealthily obese. All women look that way." And when I was 18 years old, I began gaining lots and lots of weight. I told my doctor Lynn that I kept on falling asleep in class at school and gaining lots of weight. And Lynn just brushed it off and she said, "that's all part of being a woman. You'll get used to it." And Judy said, "yes. All women are obese." And when I saw my cousin Ozzy and his girlfriend, Ozzy asked Judy where she's gonna take me and Judy said, "the doctors. Hannah needs to understand what a woman should look like and how she should behave." And then Ozzy's girlfriend was all like, "Judy, are the doctors putting Hannah on drugs?" And then Judy said, "no." Then Judy took me back to the doctors and made them put me on drugs. In November of 2014, the doctors put me on a deadly dosage of Depakote. I was too tired to get up to go to school the next morning and Judy kept on yelling at me to get up and go to school. I told her that I'm too sick and tired. Then Judy took Joseph to school. Then I reached to obesity and Judy stopped taking me to the doctors. I missed lots and lots of school and all my friends and teachers were worried about me. Mommy then yelled at me for being fat. Even on Sunday when we were all going to church, she said, "Hannah, your belly is sticking out. You look like you're 7 months pregnant!" And then I said, "you gotta accept the fact that your little girl is officially a woman. This is what all women should look like." And then Mommy said, "yeah, when they're 50!" When I turned 19 years old, I went to this new school and I got bullied because I was obese and everybody thought that I was pregnant. During summer school, I began eating less and less. I began losing some weight. On my 20th birthday, I quit Depakote cold turkey. After I ate my birthday cake and drank my milk, I stopped eating for good. I starved myself for weeks and I began losing weight. Then Mommy had to take me to the doctors and then to the hospital. I lost over 60 pounds. When I went back to school, I began feeling great. But then, in October of 2016, I began feeling sick again, so Mommy had to take me back to the hospital. The doctors and nurses said that I had ovarian cysts. I even threw up blood. Yeah. Blood. When I came out of the hospital, I went back to school. Judy didn't get arrested. Neither did Lynn. She moved to California. Mommy tells me to never trust Judy to take me to the doctors. Judy never did that to any of my little brothers because they're boys. She only does that to girls. Judy thinks that all women should all be the same. Obese, ugly, unhealthy, weak, and always angry.

  7. That is not what the book says at all and it’s not even close to what we believe. If you are going to talk to us like children get your facts right

  8. "Many eggs don't make it" is not a supporting statement against The issue, which is about the bodies that are being formed. Bill Nye is a Disney Character. Remember that folks.

  9. If a woman can choose to get rid of the baby, the man should be able to choose if he wants to father it or not, my money my choice

  10. I think the people who are against abortion should focus on getting better birth control, then we wouldn't have this problem in the first place!

  11. Pro lifers don't seem to care about the little girls who are raped and forced to carry the thing becuase of Pro life stupidity. I hope all of you pro lifer get a life sentence in prison and your children taken away so they don't hear your anti women rights bullshit.

  12. I’m glad lots of people are picking out the logical fallacies. I don’t even know what “inconsistent with nature” means. He didn’t touch up on the main prolife argument against telling women what to do with their bodies, which is that the zygote has its own individual dna signature that is separate from both parents, thus making it not her body on a biological level. That’s why prolifers believe they “should control women’s bodies”—they literally don’t see it as her body. He didn’t make any good counter arguments to that.

  13. For the last fucking time, it is not just the woman's body. Inside the woman's body their is a completely separate human being who in and of itself is it's own body. I am so sick of people rewording this to make it sound like pro-lifers want to control woman's bodies. We don't think it is right to kill the baby inside the woman's body. This is so goddamn basic.

  14. This guy isn't even a scientist. He's nothing but a lying ideological atheist who take every chance to bash theists under his garbage science.

  15. Bill apparently you don't know what your talking about. You are a man trying to shove abortion down our throats. The Bible is not the main reason for pro-life. What about that you can see a baby's heart beat via ultrasound at 6 weeks. You Bill aren't following science. At conception a whole new individual set of DNA and RNA I'd created a unique human life. For me you "fake" scientist are the ones pushing abortion. Your a man so by your own statements you should sit down and shut up

  16. His argument is great.. no one like abortion, no one is like “let’s kill some babies today!” This discussion is only filled with ignorant dudes who instead want to control women’s bodies more than anything

  17. The irony, about Bill Nye the "science" guy, is that he says men, don't have say over women's bodies, well, then this raises the question? What if the guy, just happens to say he identifies as a girl now, heck he doesn't even have to do that, the far left says that you should not assume one's gender, so he's just assuming, that the person who got her pregnant identifies as a man. Not to mention, what if there is a girl who thinks she is a guy, who gets pregnant by a guy who identifies as a girl, or she identifies as a man, but gets pregnant by a man? Who gets say in the abortion? Also, he doesn't understand, that the arguments being used, are rather fallacious. Bill Nye doesn't understand reality, he makes fun of people who believe in the stories, and miracles of the bible, meanwhile he believes that there is no life until the very second the baby takes a breath, and he believes that men and women can become the other gender at will, and not to mention he believes in a religion, too. He worships the statements of liberal agenda. And lastly, whether someone believes in evolution or creationism is of no substance to me, but the thing I find hilarious is people like him will say that homeschooling your kids and teaching them creationism is child abuse, because it's anti-scientific. Meanwhile, these same people are the ones who want abortions handed out like candy, and want six-year-old Jimmy on estrogen, because he said he likes girls.

  18. Abortion is horrible. If a woman doesnt want to get pregnant she should learned to keep her pants on. Why should a child have to suffer bc of her lack of restraint.
