Shapiro Gets Into Tense Back-and-Forth With Pro-Choice Student, Demands She Explain When Life Begins

Shapiro Gets Into Tense Back-and-Forth With Pro-Choice Student, Demands She Explain When Life Begins

Conservative personality Ben Shapiro quarreled with a pro-choice student Monday during a question and answer session following his speech at Salisbury University in Maryland.

“You don’t get to kill things just because it’s in your uterus,” Shapiro told the student during a back-and-forth.

“It’s my body. How about you stay out of it?” the student replied.

“I don’t care about your appendix,” Shapiro quipped, referencing the student’s earlier argument. “I don’t even care about your uterus. I care about what’s in it.”

“And I can take out my appendix if I don’t want it. So why can’t I take out other parts of my body?” the student asked.

“Because they are not independent living human beings,” Shapiro fired back.

The student continued to engage in a debate, arguing the fetus is merely a “bundle of cells.”

“At what point does that bundle of cells become a human being in your judgement?” Shapiro asked her.

“Um—,” the student said.

“No really,” Shapiro interjected.

Had a blast with @YAF at @SalisburyU! Particularly grateful to the lefties who came out to debate. Always fun :)

“No, I just need to calm down for a second,” the student said.

After some silence, Shapiro argued “that is the relevant question.”

“If your argument is it’s a bundle of cells then the question becomes when it’s not a bundle of cells,” the conservative personality noted.

  1. This is the question that is at the crux of the issue but remains one which the courts, and those aligned with choice bury their heads in the sand about. Why? Because if they take the best reasoning in every form of logic, science, faith, philosophy, law, etc... the answer is life begins at it's creation. I say creation, and not conception because asexual reproduction occurs outside the bounds of "conception" but those who are created in such a way are still human persons.
