"Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing."

On Monday's episode of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah pointed out how Republicans who claim a pro-life stance and are steadfastly aiming to defund Planned Parenthood overlap with the same crowd who opposes gun control.

"The point is, if pro-lifers would just redirect their powers toward gun violence, the amount of lives they could save would reach superhero levels," Noah noted. "They just need a superhero’s total dedication to life, because right now, they’re more like comic book collectors: Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing."

The segment included a string of clips with Republican presidential candidates such as Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina passionately discussing their pro-life positions, though edited to apply as their statements on gun control.

"Imagine if we could bring some of that pro-life passion into being more, well, pro-life," Noah said. "If pro-lifers want to fight for lives outside the womb, they don't even need to change what they're saying. They just need to add a little bit more."
