What Would You Say?

Make the Pro-Life Case in 60 Seconds


Brooke B. McIntire

You’re in a conversation and someone says, “Pro-lifers just want to force their religious views on everyone else. They don’t really have a good reason to oppose abortion.”

What would you say?

Dismissing opposition to abortion as religious ideology is intellectually lazy.

There are rational arguments against abortion, and those who oppose abortion make them often.

So, when abortion advocates dismiss arguments against abortion, remember these three steps:

First, formally state the case against abortion.

Second, defend the case against abortion by clearly stating the reasons for your pro-life position.

Third, establish ground rules for further discussion.
