Are you scared to talk about abortion? Don’t worry—almost everyone is. Either we think the subject is too impolite, or we don’t want to be branded an intolerant fanatic, or we’re afraid we won’t represent the pro-life side well enough. Whatever the reason for this fear, it causes many of us pass up opportunities to speak out on behalf of the unborn.
You can overcome this fear, says Trent Horn in his new book Persuasive Pro-Life. With a little knowledge and a few proven techniques, you can become a bold and effective apologist for life.
Drawing on over a decade as a pro-life organizer, Horn helps you cut through the diversions and obfuscations of the “pro-choice” side in order to accurately frame the legal, historical, and medical issue surrounding abortion. Then he demonstrates—with vivid personal examples from his years of campus activism—the importance of being charitable in all abortion debates, no matter how strident the other side might be. We must be not just warriors for the pro-life cause, he says, but ambassadors for it.
Then Horn leads you a guided tour of the many types of pro-abortion opponent or inquirer (“the pragmatist,” “the skeptic,” “the conflicted”) along with more real-life examples. In each case he teaches you specific approaches—what to say, what not to say, and how to bear yourself—that are custom-tailored to every situation.
The struggle over abortion has never been hotter, and the stakes could not be higher. Read Persuasive Pro-Life today and never again be afraid to speak up for the precious and fundamental right to life.
Praise for Persuasive Pro-Life
“Trent Horn really knows how to get people thinking and talking about abortion. Persuasive Pro-Life is an invaluable handbook for anyone who wants to become more skilled at defending the humanity of the preborn.”—Lila Rose, President, Live Action
“Trent Horn articulates the pro-life case clearly and effectively. Persuasive Pro-Life is a model of logical clarity and completeness, and of patience with and genuine good will toward pro-choice objectors. This book will repay study by any pro-life advocate.”—Patrick Lee, McAleer Professor of Bioethics, Franciscan University of Steubenville
“Although the Catholic Church defends the sanctity of human life, many Catholics are ill-equipped to discuss the issue of abortion in a way that is persuasive to those who disagree with the Church's position or do not fully understand it. For this reason, Trent Horn's book should be required reading for every Catholic in the United States.”—Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, Baylor University
