Just curious...when did he make that argument?

"Some people abuse and beat babies therefore ALL spanking is bad."

I watched the entire video, and I don't think he ever said anything on those lines. If I missed, please tell me the exact time he said that.

He did draw attention to the startling frequency of spanking and some of the extreme cases of spanking very young babies, but he also offered specific reasons and studies as to why all spanking was bad (starting at 13:05).

Of course, you're free to refute his arguments and make counter arguments, but putting a poor argument is his mouth and then attacking that poor argument is the definition of a straw man fallacy.
