A progressive commentator had his pro-abortion argument completely dismantled when Tim Pool asked one question.
Pool, who is self-described "pro-choice from a traditional liberal position," said that a woman should have a choice up until a certain point if the unborn baby is viable. Pool said that the woman should deliver the baby through a C-section instead of receiving a late-term abortion.
"There seems to be this amoral argument where, 'Just kill the baby anyway,' which doesn't make any logical sense – that's the pro-abortion side," Pool said. "I don't see how that makes sense morally, ethically, or mathematically."
"The left is so fervent about legalizing the killing of babies at nine months," Pool declared.
Lance argued that women should be able to have abortions in the ninth month of pregnancy whether the fetus is viable or not.
Political cartoonist Seamus Coughlin asked Lance, "You believe that the moment after a child is outside of the birth canal that they are now endowed with human rights, however, when they are inside of the mother literally anything you do to them is acceptable because they are inside of the mother?"
Lance replied, "Oh no, I don't think anything is acceptable, but I think the mother should still have the ultimate authority over what happens to her body."
Pool set a trap for Lance by asking if an expectant mother should be allowed to do meth during her pregnancy.
Lance replied that if a pregnant woman were doing meth while pregnant that child protective services should intervene to prevent her from possibly killing the baby from drug use.
Pool shot back, "Oh, but it's her body though."
Lance responded, "Yeah, it's her body."
Pool played devil's advocate, "If she wants to do meth, what's the big deal?"
Lance then shot down his own pro-abortion argument.
"The big deal is that she's intentionally trying to kill a child," Lance conceded, completely dismantling his previous pro-choice argument.
Lance then attempted to switch the subject by saying that methamphetamines are illegal.

Lance attempted to argue that the "Timcast" podcast was a right-wing show.
Pool rebutted that he and his show are both "centrist," citing the AllSides media bias rating. He noted that most of the "Timcast" audience are libertarians, but there are also conservative and liberal viewers.
Pool fired back at Lance, "So here's what I think, I think you're in a cult."
"I think the cult is derived from algorithms on social media," Pool proclaimed. "So you only surround yourself with this loud noise."
"You think I'm a conservative because you hang out in a bubble," Pool added.
