With the impending confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice there is more talk than usual about abortion, and that will only increase from here. Are you you ready to respond to people graciously when they make bad pro-abortion arguments?
The arguments are varied, but the most common ones are easy to refute. For example, they love to play on people’s emotions and pretend that we are hostile to rape victims if we don’t let them kill their children. But just turn it around on them and ask, “So are you saying that you’d support making all abortions illegal except in the cases of rape?” I guarantee you that the response will be “no.” Then you simply say, “Then why are you exploiting rape victims to make your case for unrestricted abortions, and why do you support the Democrats’ policies of increasing abortions with taxpayer funding?” it is just that easy. Bonus points for reminding them how Planned Parenthood and other abortionists protect rapists and sex traffickers.
And when you get the inevitable “pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born argument,” share these points.
