Migkiller tries to establish mind-body dualism by appealing to (1) imagining our mind without the body, (2) mental states vs. brain states, (3) free will and (4) persistent identity. I take these arguments on one by one, showing why each fails. I culminate by analyzing his attempt to use mind-body dualism to prove that abortion is immoral, showing that even if he's right about dualism, that proves the very opposite of what he thought it did.

Sorry if the editing is choppy, I had to trim this down from 15 minutes.
