079: (Part 1) Fighting for the Unborn: The Pro-Life Case Explained

Feb 28, 2019 | Apologetics, Ethics, Podcast

Do you feel mystified by the abortion debate? Does it seem like the world is just devolving into insanity as you fight for what seems to be an obvious human right? Would you like to be able to articulate a defense for the defenseless unborn with clarity and grace?

If so, this podcast episode is for you.

As Christians, we understand that all human life is intrinsically valuable; that is, from the moment of conception/fertilization, a human baby is growing in the womb of his/her mother, and that human baby has vale in virtue of its humanity.

The best science we have today confirms this, and even our most basic moral intuition is that human life is valuable.

Nevertheless, this is a complicated issue, and it’s easy to become frustrated. And as I’ve written about recently, I’ve been there too.

In this series I am going to walk you through some thoughtful arguments which demonstrate the pro-life case. We’ll explain it in simple terms, and even try to work through the confusing terms, unclear arguments, and unrelated moral dilemmas that aim to distract from the simplicity of the pro-life case.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. Why we, as Christians, have a duty to stake our claim in this fight (and, it *is* a fight).
  2. A formal argument that makes the pro-life case clear.
  3. How an appeal to basic intuition can go a long way in this debate.
