Concluding the “Pro-Life Lies” Series
Download Audio MP3 | 00:28:00
It’s the twelfth and final part of our popular “Responding to Pro-Life Lies Video” series! The video we’re responding to lists 55 “pro-life lies” a woman named Kenna heard, and in this series we respond to them all.
This is the first of four episodes with Josh’s brother Timothy, who is now a staff member at Justice For All.
After discussing the last six “lies,” Josh, Tim and Gabi have a conversation about the need for pro-life people to get out of their “echo chamber,” and the need to ultimately be known by their love. We also communicate a mutual desire for both sides to be more charitable, considering the best arguments from the opposing side as opposed to just trumpeting the worst they can find.
Here are the 8 “pro-life lies” we respond to in this episode:
- “Birth control causes abortion.”
- “Emergency contraception is an abortifacient.”
- “Women are sacred vessels.”
- “Pro-choice women don’t have children.”
- “Pro-choice women should have their children taken away.”
- “Pro-choice people don’t care about babies.”
Note from Josh: I reached out to Kenna to let her know we finished the series based on her video and offered her a chance to respond. She wrote, “It was great to meet people who could discuss abortion and present their point of view in a civil manner. YouTube was my main forum for political discussions and it doesn’t have the greatest reputation. I’m not as active online anymore since I finished college and started working, but I really did enjoy your podcast. Congratulations on finishing your series.” ~ Kenna
I told her I would always be open to discussing abortion with her further.
