Actor James Franco and his Philosophy Time co-host, Eliot Michaelson, interviewed Princeton professor of Philosophy, Elizabeth Harman, about the morality of abortion.
Her answers, which include a pretzel-logic, nonsense idea that if a mother intends to kill her child in the womb at any time then the human being never had a moral status. Therefore, neither the mother nor society has a moral obligation to protect its life.
Franco’s reactions to her twists and turns in attempting to justify abortion at the moral level reflect perfectly the reaction that many on both sides of the issue had while listening to Prof. Harman’s absurd drivel. Watch:
At least even some pro-abortion YouTube commenters had the sense to call this out as absolute garbage. Maybe there is hope for humanity.
