It starts young.
Our pro-life kids start getting hammered on the abortion issue at younger and younger ages. By the time they get to college, Big Abortion has created a highly trained cadre of abortion rights evangelists ready to pounce on your pro-life child and rhetorically beat them into submission if they dare to defy abortion orthodoxy.
Worse, the onslaught causes many of our kids to question the pro-life position, and even embrace the lies espoused by Big Abortion.
Fight back. You can arm them with ammunition now.
Iowans for LIFE is launching a pro-life apologetics video series called, “What would you say?” The series features a team of ten pro-lifers from our community role-playing pro-life vs. abortion rights positions.
How would your child answer this?
Ask your child, “what would you say” if someone says this to you:
“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 a women to attain her 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.”
Avoid a weak response
Most kids are going to hem and haw and sputter an unfocused, non-compelling response. Frankly, same with most adults.
You and your family need to know exactly how to respond when confronted with these assertions. Our pro-life video apologetics series arms you with smart, concise, compassionate responses. Some are as succinct as 20 seconds, very easy to be memorized.
We’ve included two for your immediate review.

If you’d like a set of flash cards with question on one side and response on the other, you can order our complete Pro-Life Apologetics Tool Kit for a suggested donation of $25.
Iowans for LIFE has begun posting these “What would you say” videos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Be sure to like/follow us. And share our videos. Pro-lifers need to be on their toes when faced with an opportunity to ‘evangelize’ their own pro-life belief system.
This project was made possible by a grant from the Catholic Foundation of SW Iowa. We thank them for their support.
