Cenk Uygur responds to the death of Savita Halappanavar, a 31 year old woman who died as a result of being denied an abortion in Ireland early Sunday, October 24, 2012.

Savita was denied the abortion despite multiple requests and already miscarrying, resulting in a very painful and traumatic experience leading to her death.

"I think fundamentalist religious people who take it to this kind of extreme are the most immoral people in the world. It's not, like, "oh, hey, religion...no, it's morality, or they're just the same as everyone else". No, no, no, they're not the same as everybody else. when you take stupid laws that don't make any sense, that aren't even in your bible, it doesn't even say you shouldn't have an abortion in your bible, and then you apply to everybody whether they are in your religion or they're not in your religion, whether they agree or don't agree, and then some people die because of it... that's as immoral an act as you could possibly do. And why? Because no, no, no, some emperor Constantine 16 hundred years ago made a political document that he said Jesus might have- or Jesus' friends- might have said 400 years before that. This is so stupid. How dare you.. How dare you let her die like that? And now we have these Neanderthals in America that want to take us back to these dark ages. Thousands of bills across the country [are] trying to walk back reproductive rights.. I can't believe we're having this conversation... and so many states, they're winning it. I'm so sick of people's religion, man. I'm so sick of it. And constantly, "no, you have to do my religion.. no, YOU have to do my religion". FUCK OFF. Why do I have to do your religion? I don't. I don't believe your religion. .. I don't believe it. Get it through your thick skull. I don't give a shit about it. I don't care if it's fundamentalist Christianity, fundamentalist Islam, fundamentalist anything... It's voodoo, I don't give a shit. You're not going to run my life based on your dumbass beliefs, if you come with logic and reason, and we have a conversation about, "hey, ok, here's a reasonable basis for this law". Ok, fine, then we'll talk about it. But if you come to me, "my sky god, I think, 2000 years ago, told a fucking bush, and he talked to fucking Moses, and then he said, well, there is a seed in your body, and then some dumbass pope interpreted that 15 hundred years ago as saying, "hey, maybe you shouldn't do this or that, and hence, I'm going to let your wife die". FUCK YOU... fundamentalist bullshit."
