You seriously compared scraping a baby out of a human being and destroying it to eating shellfish. What is wrong with you. Tell this “truth” to your mother and see how she feels about it.

Absolute garbage

Can’t believe anyone wasted their time listening to these imbeciles spewing out absolute lies and nonsensical garbage. The amount of vitriol that this podcast causes is just evil. It makes me sad that people take them seriously.
