How to Win a Pro-Life Debate



The video "I'm Pro-Life, Change My Mind" contains lots of helpful information to make a compelling pro-life argument. The video itself is a bit long, so let me break it down for you...

Define Terms

The first thing that you should do is define terms.
"This is actually very important when discussing an issue to find out what your terms are, to define them, so you're both understanding issues," Crowder explained.
At this point, it's advantageous to get your opponent on your side. Finding a common ground on something can help. 

Answer Important Questions

Next you should explore the most important questions. 
"What determines a life? When does life begin?" 
Steven Crowder stated life starts at conception. He justified it by saying "After conception, there's a unique genetic code."

Be Careful of Victim Status

"Anytime someone comes up who's really hardcore against our view point, they have invariably set up some kind of victim status." He added "they use it because when they feel their agrument is on shakey ground (or their position), they revert back to it."

Answers to Counter Pro-Abortion Arguments

It's Not My Decision

You can take a moral stand about something that doesn't affect you directly. In fact, standing up and fighting for tiny humans that can't defend themselves is nobel.  

A great example from the video is "I'm against slavery. I think that it's bad, but if someone else makes that decision, I have no right to judge their right to choose slavery." 

Well My Opinion Is...

"Someone's opinion on an issue doesn't change what it is. It doesn't matter what our opinion is on gravity. It doesn't matter what our opinion is on slavery if it's immoral. Indentured servitude that's immoral. It doesn't matter what our opinion is if that's a life," Steven pointed out.

What About a Women's Choice

Yes, women should have choices.
"I support four choices: contraception, abstinance, motherhood, adoption." Crowder goes on to say "The only one I have a problem with is the fifth one... that's murder."

Baby's Viability

Many people believe that the fetus becomes a baby worth saving when it can survive outside the womb, but this theory brings up many questions.

Crowder brought up the point that babies born in the 40s could not survive as premature as early as they can today. This makes the point are babies born now "more important just because of our technology?"

Is a baby that has a better chance of premature viability because of the advanced medical devices in wealthier communities like Manhattan worth more than an infant in the back woods of Tennessee? 

The Rape Debate

"What I think about rape is that rape is terrible" Steven explained. "That doesn't change the circumstance that there's a life growing inside that women." 
"The rapist has committed an evil, evil act," he continued. "I'm simply saying that you can't meet an evil act with a greater evil that is a termination of a life."
"I just don't believe meeting evil with a more evil act."

Would You Hit Someone With Your Car?

"You're driving home tonight.  You're not entirely sure, but you're pretty sure you see someone in the road, do you stop?" Of course. He went on to explain. "Because you'd air on the side of not ending a life, right?"

"Some people can't be convinced. You can still be very civil."

Baby Born at 24 Weeks Surprises Everyone

Penny Sized Feet Victoria Bradley, the mom of this beautiful baby girl named Francesca, said that when her daughter was born she “still looked like a fetus. Her skin was see-through, and she didn't have eyelashes or eyebrows. Her eyes weren't open yet." Francesca's "hand the size of a fingernail, her feet the size of pennies." The tiny human weighed less than two pounds. Born Just 2 days After Abortion Limit “I didn’t think she would be here. It’s scary to think if she had been just two days earlier, [doctors] wouldn’t have worked to save her,” Victoria Bradley told the press. Why were the two days so important? In the United Kingdom (where Victoria was born) they have determined viability with a 24-week cutoff mark. Thankfully, the baby girl skimmed past the cutoff, so the medical staff would help her. Against all Odds The baby's now thriving! "She's fought off memeningitis, collapsed lungs, and kindney problems, had 15 blood transfusions, and laser…

Baby's Brain Stolen While He Still Had A Beating Heart

What happens to aborted babies?What if their heart is still beating after the procedure? This scenario happens more than the abortion industry would like to admit.


Holly O'Donnell was a procurement technician at StemExpress. One day something abhorrent happened that she will never forget. Her co-worker called out for her saying "I want you to see something kind of cool. This is kind of neat." 
When she went over to see what her co-worker Jessica was referring to, Holly recalls being "just flabbergasted" adding "this is the closest thing to a baby that I've seen." 
The Baby's Heart Started BeatingMost people would think that that is impossible, but it's simply not. Dr. Ben Van Handel, the executive director of Novogenix Laboratories stated "there are times when after the procedure is done that the heart is still beating. "It had a face." She went on to describe the aborted tiny human saying that "it's nose was very prono…

Will New Bill Force Men to Get Vasectomies? What You Need to Know...

Democratic Crongresswoman Rolanda Hollis from the state of Alabama proposed a bill (HB 238) in February 2020 that “would require a man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.” 
Not only would they be forced to undergo the procedure, but they would also be required to pay for it out of their own pocket. 
"It always takes two to tango," Hollis stated. We can't put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsibly also." Comparing Apples to OrangesThe lawmaker tweeted that this bill will "help with the reproductive system" and "neutralize the abortion ban bill," but let's get real. Pro-life advocates are trying to save the lives of tiny humans. We're not forcing women to get their tubes tied. There is a distinctive difference between mandatory surgery and murdering unborn children, and yes (you've got it!), they're both wrong. Why Was It Int…
