James Corden, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers React to “Incomprehensible” Overturning of Roe v. Wade
At the top of each of their respected late-night shows, late-night hosts James Corden,
Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah took a moment to address the U.S.
Supreme Court’s decision Friday to overturn
Roe v. Wade
, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.
In a taping filmed outside the U.K. Parliament, the
Late Late Show’
reacted to the Supreme Court ruling, first reflecting on how abortion was
legalized in the U.K. in 1967. Corden noted that it would take nearly 800 elected
officials and appointees to change the legalization of abortion in the U.K and
agree that “the fundamental rights of half the population would be endangered in the United Kingdom.”
Corden went on to further address the “heart wrenching and frightening news.”
