Ben Shapiro Has an Epic Response when a Liberal Student Questions the ‘Moral Value’ of a Fetus September 17, 2017

Ben Shapiro went into the “belly of the beast” — UC-Berkeley — to talk about America. His speech was controversial, because liberals are so afraid of the truth they have to protest every single conservative that shows up.  (So much for being the “birthplace of free speech!”)  But I don’t blame them for being scared.  Look what happened when a leftist student questioned Shapiro about the value of a “fetus.”  Shapiro answered his question with another question, by asking him where he’d “draw the line” to determine when an unborn baby is valuable.

Here’s what happened next:

“Are you going to draw the line at the heartbeat? Because it’s very hard to draw the line at the heartbeat, there are people who are adults who are alive because of a pacemaker,” he added. “Are you going to do it based on brain function? OK, well what about people who are in a coma, should we just kill them?”

Human life either “has intrinsic value or it doesn’t,” according to Shapiro.

The questioner interjected that he believes “sentience” is what gives something moral value.

Shapiro was locked and loaded with a response.

“So when you’re asleep, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked.

“I’m still considered sentient when I’m asleep?” the student responded.

“OK, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked in a follow-up question.

The student was gobsmacked.  He responded with, “Well, then, um… no.”


I love it that Shapiro was able to absolutely show the holes in the liberal argument for killing babies.  If you would like to see the video, see below:

“A first trimester fetus has moral value because whether you consider it a potential human life or a full-on human life, it has more value than just a cluster of cells,” Shapiro said. “If left to its natural processes, it will grow into a baby.”
