During the 44th season finale of Saturday Night Live, the 51-year-old donned a costume from theThe Handmaid's Tale show, but eventually took it off to reveal a shirt with the word "MINE" written on it and an arrow pointing downward.She began her monologue by showing images of the 25 male legislators in Alabama who voted in favor of the bill, which makes it legal to sentence any doctor who performs an abortion in Alabama to 99 years behind bars.
"This look like the mugshots of everyone arrested at a massage parlor," Jones said. "And if any of them had lips, I would tell them to kiss my entire ass. You can't control women because -- I don't know if y'all heard -- but women are the same as humans."
"I mean, why do all of these weird ass men care what women choose to do with their bodies, anyways?” Jones asked. "I don't care what you care to do with your 65-year-old droopy ass balls!"
Then, the Ghostbusters star turned serious, emphasizing to the audience that this really is a "war on women."
"When women have a choice, women have freedom," Jones continued.
She concluded the segment by shouting, "And I’m Leslie 'Dracarys' Jones!" the order a Game of Thrones character gives to a dragon to unleash fire on her foes.
