Comedian Amy Schumer attacks Roe v. Wade reversal in "Colorado" sketch
"Colorado … We're more than just beautiful wilderness," comedian Amy Schumer says in a new video, donning a cowboy hat, a flannel shirt and a vest in front of a green-screened mountain range.
- "We also have … access to all the services you may need," she adds, as images of a women's health clinic and exam chair are pictured. "All as legal as a fresh cup of hot cocoa is refreshing."
Driving the news: That's the premise of one of Schumer's new sketches, titled "Colorado," that will air in the fifth season of "Inside Amy Schumer" on Paramount+.
- In the scene, Schumer plays a tourism booster for the state, where she emphasizes you can "do with your own body what you want to do with your own body."
Context: Schumer — known for her politically tinged humor and abortion-rights stance — is taking aim at the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
- Colorado, which in April passed a law codifying the right to an abortion, has largely stood as an island of access.
What's next: The new season of "Inside Amy Schumer" debuts Oct. 20.
