Bill Maher says he's 'okay' with abortion being 'murder' because of overpopulation

On his Friday show, HBO host Bill Maher said he’s “OK” with abortion, even if opponents of it consider it “murder,” something he didn’t really dispute.

This is not how most pro-choice advocates frame this debate, but Maher went there.

His reasoning? There are already 8 billion people on the planet.

‘They think it’s murder. And that is it’

Mahers Real time guests were Gillian Tett, a British author and journalist, and British expert Piers Morgan.

Maher told them and his audience that those who are pro-life are “kind of” right about abortion being “murder.”

But then the host explained why he thinks that’s “okay.”

“None of you believe it’s murder,” Maher said. “You know, that’s why I don’t understand this 15 week thing. Or Trump’s plan is, “Let’s leave it to the states.” You mean, so killing babies is okay in some states?

He continued: “For example, I can respect the absolutist position. I really can. I scold the left when they say, “Oh, you know what, they just hate women, people who aren’t pro-life. The pro-choice don’t hate women. They just made that up. They think it’s murder. And that’s kind of what it is.”

Maher thinks murder is ‘okay’ because it is population control

Maher explained why he has no problem with this particular type of “murder” as he describes it.

He also seemed to endorse it as a method of population control.

“I’m just okay with that. That’s me,” Maher said. “I mean, there are eight billion people in the world. I’m sorry, we won’t miss you. That’s my position on it.”

Maher’s comments came in the context of presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump recently announcing on his social media platform Truth Social that he believes regulating abortion should be left to the states. The former president also said that in vitro fertilization treatment should remain accessible.

Trump previously criticized his own party for its “poor” handling of the abortion issue during the 2022 midterm elections, saying the losses suffered by several Republican candidates during that cycle were “not my fault.”
