Video Title: Abortion Ruling: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

Date: 2 December 2022

  1. What is being discussed in the video? Explain your answer.
    The video talks about their disagreement of the draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito that looks set to strike down Roe v Wide. In the opening of the draft declaring that Roe v Wide needs to be overruled and it is actually wrong from the start. They decline the argument in roe v wide that the Constitution of the United States conferred the right to have an abortion. This draft triggers public outrage in the United States because if the draft has been determined, it would be difficult to have access to a legal and safe abortion, In the other hand there are around 25% of women in America have an abortion and six of them are already a mother, some of them are survivor from rape and incest and maybe for medical reasons, and some of them having abortion because the want to do that. It is about the right of people to have control over their body and the constitution must not interfere about this. In the end of the video the speaker provide the information that can help women who wants to have an abortion
  2. What is the speaker’s main purpose? Explain your answer.
    Their main purpose is to persuade the audience that the draft is actually a catastrophic. It will dismiss the legal, easy, and safe access for having an abortion, of course it is also contrary with their ideology of freedom. With the draft being determined, it makes the freedom of choice and the right on their own body become limited. The video wants to spread an awareness to the people that this is something they need to be concerned of.

Watching the video, we can see clearly that the speaker is totally disagree with the draft opinion, he explains about the effect if the draft is really determined, he also retells the story of woman who wants to have an abortion but facing a difficulties in doing it, not only that the speaker do really express his sarcasm on the topic.
