On Thursday, despite the arrests and protests, conservative commentator and writer Ben Shapiro delivered his highly anticipated speech at UC-Berkeley. Maybe, the real fear was that someone like Ben Shapiro will cause a few college liberals to actually think for themselves.
However, one moment, in particular, draws much more attention after a self-proclaimed left-leaning student confronted Shapiro over his views on abortion.
The liberal snowflake student asked Shapiro why he believes a first-trimester fetus has “moral value.”
Shapiro answered: “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. If left to its natural processes, it will grow into a baby.”
This is when 33-year-old conservative Shapiro asked the student where he would “draw the line” to determine if a fetus has moral value or not.
“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.
“So when you’re asleep, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked, to which the student responded with a question: “I’m still considered sentient when I’m asleep?”
“OK, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked.
“Well, then, uh, no,” the student said and added:”I would still have “potential sentience” even if I was in a coma.”
Shapiro then ended with an epic answer: “I agree it is potential sentience. You know what else is potential sentience? Being a fetus.”

Brilliant! Watch Shapiro and he talks from the heart. He doesn’t have to prepare answers, he knows what’s right and immediately responds.
This is why the Loony Left do not want conservatives talking to their SHEEP, they might actually start thinking for themselves!!! Whether he would ever find out or not, he probably changed some minds and hearts with that question and answer session.
What do you think? Help us spread this article if you agree with Shapiro’s view on abortion!
