(National Sentinel)Â Pro-Life: Conservative author and speaker Ben Shapiro was asked a question about abortion by a student following his speech at the University of California-Berkley Friday, in which he engaged in some rather quick-witted back-and-forth, at one point giving a classic answer.
â€œAny time you draw any line other than the inception of the child, you end up drawing a false line that can also be applied to adults,â€ Shapiro said. â€œSo either human life has intrinsic value or it doesnâ€™t.â€
Shapiro asked the student if he could at least agree that adult life has intrinsic value. TheÂ student responded that he believes â€œsentienceâ€ â€” the ability to perceive or feel things â€” gives something moral value, rather thanÂ being a human alone, which is stereotypical Alt-Left pabulum in terms of abortion discussions.
â€œOK, so when youâ€™re asleep, can I stab you?â€ Shapiro asked, to which the student responded in the negative.
â€œOK, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?â€ Shapiro then asked.
â€œWell then â€¦ uhhh, no,â€ the student replied. â€œBut thatâ€™s still potential sentience!â€
â€œDo you know what else has potential sentience? Being a fetus,â€ Shapiro responded.
Like we said,Â classic. And spot-on.
