Podcast host Joe Rogan sparred with the Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon Tuesday about abortion, with the latter being pro-life.

The duo were discussing abortion and noted the recent Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. Dillon said Christian conservatives volunteer and donate toward pro-life causes. Rogan agreed that there are charities to help those who choose life but that there are instances in which abortion may be appropriate.

“There are women who have been raped who should not have to fucking carry some rapist’s baby,” Rogan said. “There’s women who have been sexually assaulted before the age of 14.”

“There are people who have been born of rape and are alive right now, and are pro-life,” Dillon responded. “They go around speaking and talking about how, ‘I had a right to live.’ They will go around and make a case, and they were born of a rape.” (RELATED: Joe Rogan Accuses FBI Of Raiding Mar-A-Lago To ‘Knock’ Trump Out Of 2024 Election)


Rogan disagreed, however, invoking his young daughter to make a point.

“You don’t have a right to tell a 14-year-old girl she has to carry her rapist’s baby. Do you understand what you’re saying? You don’t have the right to tell my 14-year-old daughter she has to carry her rapist’s baby.”

Rogan has a 14-year-old daughter Lola, a 12-year-old Rosy and is the step-father to 23-year-old Kayja Rose.

“You understand that’s a 14-year-old child,” Rogan continued. “A 14-year-old child gets raped, you say that they have to carry that baby?”

“I don’t think two wrongs make a right,” Dillon said. “I don’t think murder fixes a rape.”

Dillon explained that he believes life begins at conception and therefore abortion constitutes murder.

Rogan has previously said he is “100% for a woman’s right to choose.”
