Joe Rogan unleashes on podcast guest during heated abortion debate

Controversial podcaster Joe Rogan has roasted a guest on his show during a heated debated about abortion rights.

While interviewing Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan raised the point of teen girls being made to carry out pregnancies that are the product of rape to full term.

"There are women who have been raped who should not have to f**king carry some rapist’s baby," Rogan said on the show.

"There’s women who have been sexually assaulted before the age of 14."

The boss of the satirical news site disagreed, expressing a pro-life point of view that sent Rogan into meltdown.

"There are people who have been born of rape and are alive right now, and are pro-life," he explained.

"They go around speaking and say how, 'I had a right to live'.

"They will go around and make a case, and they were born of a rape."

Rogan did not take the comment lying down and snapped back with an example using his own 14-year-old daughter.

"You don’t have the right to tell a 14-year-old girl she has to carry a rapist’s baby," Rogan spat back.

"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 continued: "You understand that it’s a 14-year-old child?

"A 14-year-old child gets raped, you say that they have to carry that baby?"But the Babylon Bee CEO held his ground, replying: "I don’t think two wrongs make a right. I don’t think murder fixes a rape."

Rogan is father to 14-year-old Lola and 12-year-old Rosy, who he shares with his wife, Jessica Ditzel.

He is also stepfather to Ditzel’s older daughter, Kayja Rose, 23.

Rogan has previously expressed support for abortion rights, but called it a 'complicated issue' in a May 4 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.

"It gets weird when the baby gets like six months old," Rogan said.

"I know that some states [allow] late-term abortions and sometimes you need one for medical reasons, right? The woman could die if she gives birth.

"Like, it’s a decision that people have to make."

Rogan then added: "He added, “I am 100 per cent for a woman’s right to choose.

"But as a human being, just a person observing things, there’s a big difference between a little clump of cells and a foetus with an eyeball and a beating heart."
