It’s Life Report’s 150th episode, and Trent Horn is back in studio to discuss how pro-lifers should respond when their discussion of abortion gets down to the “metaphysical basement:” why are human beings valuable in the first place?
- Why should pro-lifers be concerned with answering the question “Why do humans matter?”
- How do pro-life advocates often answer the question?
- The imago dei is probably the most controversial or least understood reason, how do you understand this reason?
- Why shouldn’t pro-lifers just quote Psalm 139, Jeremiah 1:5 and similar verses to pro-choice people?
- Can abortion be considered immoral even without reference to God?
- What do you do if a pro-choice advocate says that you’re imposing your religion on everyone else?
- Are there some inherent problems with Don Marquis’ “future like ours” argument?
