Can you help?
We’ve already written some really compelling comebacks you’re going to love. However, IFL has some very smart, articulate supporters who read our blogposts religiously. You may have even better responses than we’ve crafted.
If yes, e-mail your response back to IFL Board President, Tom Quiner, at: TomQuiner@gmail.com by Tuesday, September 3rd.
Send us a response for one, two … or all twenty, if you’re motivated.
Remember, limit the response to 100 words or less.
We want original material, not something you’ve found elsewhere.
An IFL panel will select the best responses to use in our groundbreaking “Pro-Life Apologetics Tool Kit.”
Here are the pro-abortion arguments. How would YOU respond?
“I’m personally against abortion, but I can’t impose my religion on someone else.”
“Abortion is but one of many important issues. I refuse to be a single issue voter.”
“A man can’t tell a woman what to do with her own body.”
“Well, what about rape? Would YOU force a woman to have her rapist’s baby?!!”
“Women are going to have abortions whether they’re legal or not. If you pro-lifers have your way, there will be more back alley abortions than ever, putting women’s lives at risk.”
“If abortion isn’t legal, women will be forced to get them from untrained back alley abortionists. Is that what you really want?”
“A fetus isn’t a person.”
“A fetus isn’t a person until viability.”
“If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one. It’s that simple.”
“Why don’t you pro-lifers care about the baby after it’s born?”
“What about the 14 year old girl who becomes pregnant?”
“My candidate is pro choice, but they support all of the other important social justice issues.”
“The right to abortion is vital for gender equality.”
“The right to abortion is vital for women to attain their full potential.”
“Women need a right to abortion in order to have the same freedoms as men.”
“Abortion rights are fundamental to a woman’s reproductive health concerns.”
“It’s not fair to bring a child into the world that is going to be unwanted.”
“Children born into bad situations are being set up for a life of poverty and social pathology.”
“It’s not fair to bring a child into this world with serious defects.”
“Even if a fetus was alive, the “right to life” doesn’t imply a right to use somebody else’s body. People have the right to refuse to donate their organs, for example, even if doing so would save somebody else’s life.”
What do you think? Do you have a really good comeback? Email your response to TomQuiner@gmail.com by next Tuesday, September 3rd. Thank-you!
