Conservative firebrand Ben Shapiro delivered the keynote address Friday at the March for Life in Washington, D.C., and he certainly didn’t disappoint the pro-life crowd gathered to hear his speech.
In making his case against abortion, Shapiro pondered aloud the double standards that mystify the reasoning by those who stand so staunchly in support of women’s “reproductive rights,” or more plainly, abortion.
The 35-year-old pundit, an adherent to Orthodox Judaism, took the debate over abortion rights into outer space — literally.
“There’s no question that a human life has now begun. If you were to find this [organism] on another planet, it would be considered a life, right?” Shapiro reasoned. “You would say, ‘Life found on Mars.’ If you found this organism on another planet, it would be a life.”

He went on to argue it is “irrelevant” whether one considers a fetus to be a human life. Regardless of what kind of life has been conceived, it is inarguably true that life — in some form — has been established.
At another point in Shapiro’s speech, he suggested being pro-life “does not have to be a partisan issue.”
“The only reason that so many folks believe it to be a partisan issue is because, unfortunately, one party in this country has decided to embrace the full-on abortion-till-point-of-birth position.”
