‘SNL,’ Benedict Cumberbatch goes Medieval on SCOTUS The Gut Roe v. Wade

It’s never great when Saturday night liveThe cold opening week isn’t too far off from reality. This week, host Benedict Cumberbatch wears a Renaissance Faire wig for a sketch set in 13th-century England — where the show shows Justice Samuel Alito inspired his medieval beliefs him about abortion when the Supreme Court aimed to overthrow Roe vs. Wade. (Actually, Alito’s inspiration came from a 17th-century jurist. How progressive!)

In a chilling opening, Cumberbatch told his robes and wig-wearing friends that while cleaning the sewers, a genius thought popped into his head about abortion: “You Don’t you think we should make a law against this?” His friend’s reply: “You mean like the law we have for pointy shoes?”

“Or the law that if you hunt deer in the royal forest, they’ll cut off your genitals?”

Surely, this law – like those great statutes – will stand the test of time. But perhaps abortion shouldn’t be illegal in full Nation; Why not let the individual kingdoms decide so that the concubines of many wealthy men can still have abortions when necessary in “Old York City”?

You get the idea, right?

Things started to work when Cecily Strong appeared on screen to pop a man’s bubble with a few questions like a person of almost childbearing age (12 years old). After all, Strong gave the show one of the most recent viral moments of Weekend Update with his oddly clever “clown abortion” routine. In this case, however, the appearance of both Strong and Kate McKinnon—here plays the role of a prophetic witch who predicts that the future is a chaotic hell where “all strength comes from one place called Florida” —all.

“And if you think our customs are weird,” McKinnon added as a hilarious joke, “you should watch the trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.”

What about our doomsday future? Encouragement is similar to emptiness. “Listen, I know it’s not great,” McKinnon said. “But I guess no matter how many options they take away from women, we always have a choice to keep fighting!” Yay? ‘SNL,’ Benedict Cumberbatch goes Medieval on SCOTUS The Gut Roe v. Wade
