For some time I've been intending to do an episode on the issue of abortion. It's an issue I've been very vocal about in the past and have recently felt compelled to re-engage in the public square.
Just a few weeks ago the national conversation about abortion sharply intensified when New York passed a bill which significantly weakened the regulations related to elective abortions particularly in regard to late term abortions. When a similar bill was proposed in my home state of Virginia, I found myself uncomfortable with being on the sidelines of this and other social issues. As a first step in getting more involved I decided to reach out to someone that I believe could speak to this subject in a way that my listeners would greatly benefit from.
Today's guest, Scott Klusendorf, is a nationally recognized pro-life advocate and president of the Life Training Institute. He has lectured on and debated the issue of abortion on over 80 colleges and universities, regularly conducted pro-life advocacy trainings and is the author of "The Case for Life". Yours truly caught up with Scott Klusendorf to talk about the following:
What is the current state of the abortion debate in America and in the church?
Do I have to become a Trump supporter or Republican to be on the right side of the abortion question?
How to make a 3 step argument for the pro-life position.
You don’t wanna miss this one!!!
P.S.: Ironically, this show is about kids and it just so happened that during the recording my 2 year old wandered into my studio area so you briefly hear him in the background smh. Shoutout to special guest Kaiden Coleman
