Babylon Bee CEO Debates Joe Rogan on Abortion

The Babylon Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon made an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience in which he got into a heated debate about abortion with the popular podcaster.

Conservative multimedia outlet the Babylon Bee is well known for its comedic satire. The Bee’s creators, including Dillon, are outspoken defenders of the Right to Life.

The conversation grew tense when Rogan brought up abortion bans and whether exceptions should be made for rape.

“You don’t have a right to tell a 14-year-old girl she has to carry her rapist’s baby, you just don’t,” Rogan stated forcefully.

Remaining calm Dillon responded, “I don’t think two wrongs make a right… I don’t think murder fixes a rape.”

Rogan hosts one of the most popular podcasts in the world and makes it a point to hold conversations with people across all sides of the political spectrum on his show.

The notion that exceptions should be made to kill a baby through abortion in rape cases is a common pro-abortion argument. Oftentimes this argument is used to invalidate any protections for preborn babies at all.

Dillon brought attention to the fact that “there are people who have been born of rape, and are alive right now… who go around speaking about how ‘I had a right to live.’”

According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, rape accounts for just 1% of abortions in the U.S. Yet since the reversal of Roe v. Wade, the reverberating argument from the left has been that there should be no restrictions on abortion so that rape victims can abort their children.

By reminding Rogan that there are living, breathing people walking around today who were conceived in rape, Dillon restores the humanity of children conceived in rape as more than just the consequence of a horrific crime.

When pro-aborts argue that a mother should not have to carry “her rapist’s baby” they ignore scientific truth that the baby is a unique individual human being who has committed no crime. By making exceptions to Pro-Life protections in cases of rape, we sentence an innocent child to death for a crime he or she had absolutely nothing to do with.

Anti-Life activists pretend they are being merciful when they argue that a mother who has been raped “deserves abortion.” Yet, as Dillon points out “two wrongs do not make a right.” By committing an abortion on a woman who has been raped, an abortionist is only compounding that woman’s trauma by taking the unnatural action to violently destroy her growing child within her.

“I think abortion is healthcare the way that rape is lovemaking,” Dillon stated. “If we want to use rape as an example. I think they’re opposites. These are euphemisms that we use. It’s like, we use the word healthcare. We’re talking about a procedure that ends an innocent human Life, and we’re calling it healthcare? That’s like calling rape lovemaking.”

Rogan pressed further on whether early abortions, such as at 4 or 6 weeks, should be allowed. “What if she just turned positive?” Rogan asked.

“Well, I just disagree that you can draw a line on when. Once Life has begun, I don’t think you draw lines,” Dillon responded. “I would lay it out like this, I would say: it is wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human life. Abortion intentionally kills an innocent human life. Therefore, abortion is wrong… You’re encouraging people to kill it like it’s nothing when it’s actually a human Life.”

We applaud Seth Dillon for courageously standing up for Life on one of the largest platforms in the world. The Joe Rogan Experience garners an average of 11 million listeners per episode. As Pro-Lifers we pray that Joe Rogan, all his listeners, and all those seeking the truth will hold more open-minded conversations and seek out the facts about Life and abortion.
