Hollywood and the media always love a pro-abortion storyline on TV and liberals seemed to particularly enjoy a horrifically profane rant against pro-life sidewalk counselors outside an abortion facility on Sunday night.

Veep, an HBO comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus in it’s seventh and final season, had campaign staffer Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) abort Dan Egan’s (Reid Scott) baby on the April 14 episode, titled “Pledge.”

Protester - Scripture - Children - Amy - ****

After one protester quotes Scripture and tells her to “think of the innocent children,” Amy doubles back and calls them all “hypocritical ****,” among other choice words:

Amy: Oh! You want me to think about the children, you hog-fingering ****? Well, I did think about this. I considered it, and I cried, and yeah, suck my ****, I even prayed a little, and here I am. So you can back the **** off, you hypocritical ****, before I show up to the piss puddle that is your house and protest your husband whacking it to your daughter's seventh grade yearbook. That sign's misspelled. Come on, Dan.

Kevin - Fallon - Daily - Beast - Outburst

Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast said the “uproarious outburst” gave Amy the “perfect button on the speech…before breezing into the clinic in triumph.” Promising to go “Inside Veep’s Outrageously Dark Abortion Scene,” Fallon reported that a lot of effort was put into the scene attacking pro-lifers:

Chlumsky worked hard writing and refining the speech with [Showrunner David] Mandel and writer Rachel Axler. “You want to say everything and you want to really get to the heart of stuff, but at the same time you don’t want this to be the writers saying something,” she says… “[It] just scratches the surface of what possibly… most women in that predicament feel.”
