Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro refuted every pro-abortion argument a U.C. Berkeley student could throw at him.

During a speech at the university, Shapiro fielded questions from a pro-abortion student. Responding to the student's claims, Shapiro explained that:

  1. A fetus does have “intrinsic moral value,”
  2. “Drawing a false line” on where life begins “can also be applied to people who are adults,”
  3. A fetus has “potential sentience,” and
  4. “I don’t believe you being a burden on somebody is justification for them killing you.”

"So, either human life has intrinsic value or it doesn't," Shapiro concluded.

Watch Shapiro school the student on the sanctity of all human life – and the dangers of trying to deny or violate it.
