Daily Show Host Trevor Noah, who is no friend to the pro-life movement, inadvertently made a pro-life argument on Twitter Wednesday night while attempting a joke.
It all began when Fox Sports Radio sent out this tweet about Serena Williams having been pregnant while competing at the Australian Open:
Serena Williams is 20 weeks along in pregnancy.
That means she won the Australian Open while pregnant. pic.twitter.com/ywTzWtEp4c

The timing of the Australian Open, and Serena’s pregnancy, means that Williams was two months pregnant when she won the Open. Very cool stuff, right? Trevor Noah thought so too.
So Serena cheated. Because that’s technically a doubles match. https://t.co/gkyBYlcHtQ

But wait, how could Serena’s fetus qualify her for a doubles tournament if it’s not a real life? Twitter didn’t take long to pounce on Noah’s unforced error:
@Trevornoah So, you’re saying the unborn baby is a person? Interesting…

@Trevornoah So you’re admitting that the thing in her womb is a person? Good to know…

@Trevornoah Appreciate the pro-life joke, Trevor. That child is indeed a human life

Noah better watch it if his rare instances of insight and humor will end up costing him points with his radical leftist employers. He might just want to stick with what he does best, and not be funny.
