On his Friday show, HBO host Bill Maher said he is “okay” with abortion even though 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.

Bill Maher on abortion: “They think it’s murder. And it kind of is. And I’m just okay with that. I am. There’s 8 billion people in the world. I’m sorry, we won’t miss you. That’s my position on that.”

‘They Think It’s Murder. And It Kind of Is’

Maher’s Real Time guests were Gillian Tett, a British author and journalist, and British pundit Piers Morgan.

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

But then the host explained why he is “okay” with that.

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

He continued, “Like, 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, they don’t hate women. They just made that up. They think it’s murder. And it kind of is.”

Maher Is ‘Okay’ with Murder Because It’s Population Control

Maher explained why he’s fine with this particular kind of “murder,” as he describes it.

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

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

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

Trump previously criticized his own party for “poorly” handling the abortion issue during the 2022 midterm elections, and said that the losses suffered by various Republican candidates during that cycle “wasn’t my fault.”
