'Morally Empty and Insane': Shapiro Slams Michelle Wolf for 'Salute to Abortions' Routine
Ben Shapiro slammed comedian Michelle Wolf for "saluting" abortion on her Netflix show on Sunday.
During the latest episode of "The Break" -- which aired amid the debate over the Supreme Court vacancy and what it could mean for reproductive rights -- Wolf performed a controversial routine on abortion.
Wolf argued that Trump nominating a second Supreme Court Justice could be "catastrophic" for Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to choose.
“These people are anti-abortion, which means they’re anti-woman,” Wolf said of pro-life advocates. “If these people were actually ‘pro-life,’ they would be fighting hard for healthcare, childcare, education, gun control, and protecting the environment.”
She closed the segment with a patriotic-themed "Salute to Abortion," complete with a marching band.
“Women, don't forget: You have the power to give life, and men will try to control that. Don't let them!" Wolf said to cheers from the audience. "God bless abortions and God bless America!”
On "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday, Shapiro said Wolf -- like many on the left -- is no longer advocating for safe, legal and rare abortions, and instead pushing a pro-abortion agenda.
"That is so morally bereft. It is so morally empty and insane that it makes you think that a lot of these folks have decided that abortion is not something that ought to be avoided if possible even if you believe in it, but that abortion is actually a sacrament, that it's a sign of bravery, that it's a sign of something good," Shapiro said.
"If you see the snuffing out of an incipient human life as something that is affirmatively good, I would say that you are bordering on or in the midst of a deep bout of evil."
This isn't the first time Wolf has sparked outrage with controversial statements.
In April, she hosted the White House Correspondents' Association dinner and was criticized for her personal attacks on President Trump and members of his administration, particularly press secretary Sarah Sanders.
