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.
