Right-wing commentator Ben Shapiro said in his daily show that his body, as a man, is governed and controlled the same as women.“I’m not allowed to use my body to smack my employees. I’m not allowed to use my body to sell drugs,” he said in his show.
He was responding to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), who said in the Tuesday Democratic presidential debate that there aren’t laws that govern men’s bodies like those of reproductive laws for women. In his response, he also said that the only difference between laws is that “men don’t have another human being inside their bodies.”Videos of his comments have circulated on social media. One of the clips has about 160,000 views on Twitter.“Ben Shapiro thinks laws regulating & prohibiting a woman’s access to reproductive health aren’t a big deal because there are laws that tell men what to do with their bodies,” Jordan Uhl tweeted.
