The inanity of Ben Shapiro.

Standard

Ben is sound on some issues. On other questions of public policy he is ludicrous.

Mr Shapiro is very plain speaking in declaring that he regards abortion as murder. Elective abortion is indeed immoral and a large minority of Americans agree with his opinion. He regards any participation in murder as being murder. This is under the Law of Parties. In England and Wales that used to be the common purpose rule.

Shapiro is also clear when he calls for the death penalty for murder. About 40% of American women have had abortions. He would like to see them all killed.  How about the doctors and nurses who procure these terminations? A huge number of medical staff would also have to be slain. How about the boyfriends and husbands of these women? If they encourage or assent to a termination they too are guilty of capital murder. Is there no end to Ben’s bloodlust?
