Leslie Jones is speaking out against anti-abortion legislation recently passed in Alabama, and tore into senators for trying to control and limit women's reproductive rights.
Jones joined "Weekend Update" co-anchor, Colin Jost, on the Saturday Night Live season 44 finale over the weekend, decked out in a red robe similar to those worn by the women in The Handmaid's Tale.
Jones soon ripped off the robe to reveal her bold, defiant black T-shirt with the word "Mine" written across the front, above a white arrow pointing downward, which she wore with an imposing and brilliantly intimidating grace.
After calling out the 25 white Alabama state senators who voted to pass the legislation -- saying their photos look like "the mug shots of everyone arrested at a massage parlor" -- she delivered a pointed and passionate message slamming the laws and what they mean to her.
"You can’t control women. Because, I don’t know if y’all heard, but women are the same as humans. And I’m Leslie 'Dracarys' Jones!" she said triumphantly, adopting the Game of Thrones dragon command as her warrior-like nickname. "I mean, why do all of these weird a** men care what women do with their bodies?"
"When women have a choice, women have freedom,” Jones passionately declared.
The SNL star went on to explain, "The fact that nine states are doing this means this really is a war on women."
She also had an important message for all women who feel like they are under attack.
"If you're a woman out there, and you're feeling scared or confused, just know that you're not alone," Jones said. "There's so many women out there who've got your back -- especially me."
"You can’t tell me what to do with my body," Jones concluded. "You can't make me small and put me in a box. I'm six-feet tall and 233 pounds -- there ain't no box big enough to hold me!"
