There are few issues as consequential for our personal lives and communities as abortion. It divides people not only on the streets and in workplaces, but also in homes and churches. After all, this issue involves personal decisions about sex, pregnancy, parenting, and our health. So while abortion is difficult to talk about, it’s important to provide accurate information and a context in which that information can be discussed.

In this thoroughly researched and easy-to-read book, author Randy Alcorn examines fifteen major claims of the pro-choice position and shares fact-based, rational responses. If you have mixed feelings about abortion, as many people do, this book can be part of your quest for truth. If you’re pro-choice or pro-life, it can help you think through your position.

If we have any hope of understanding and engaging with each other, let’s move our dialogue beyond bumper stickers, memes, and tweets. Randy encourages readers to listen carefully to arguments on both sides of the abortion debate, and to look at the evidence and weigh it on its own merit.

  • Examines fifteen major claims of the pro-choice position
  • Provides fact-based, rational responses
  • Encourages readers to listen carefully to arguments on both sides of the abortion debate
  • Introduction: Why talk about abortion?
  • Pro-Choice Claim #1: “The embryo isn’t a baby—it’s just a product of conception and a potential life.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #2:“Well, the fetus may be human, but it isn’t a person.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #3: “Even if a fetus is a person, no person is allowed to live off the body of another person without permission.” 16
  • Pro-Choice Claim #4: “A woman has a right to control her own body, and no one should tell her what she can or can’t do. It’s barbaric and unenlightened to force a woman to continue a pregnancy.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #5: “It’s necessary to be pro-choice in order to protect women’s rights. Those, especially men, who push their pro-life convictions on others are anti-women.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #6: “Opposition to abortion is just a religious opinion.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #7: “We need abortion in cases of rape or incest, or risk to the mother’s life.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #8: “Every child should be a wanted child.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #9: “Forcing a woman to keep a child she can’t afford to raise and who will limit her opportunities in life—or to give up a child for adoption—is cruel.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #10:“No one should be made to carry, deliver, and care for a disabled child with lifelong needs, nor should a child be condemned to a lifetime of suffering.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #11: “The world is overpopulated, so the fewer births the better.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #12:“If abortion were made illegal, women would again die from unsafe abortions.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #13:“I’m personally pro-life, but a woman has a right to choose.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #14:“Pro-life proponents are pro-birth, not pro-life. They only care about fetuses and do nothing to help children who are already born, as evidenced by how they vote.”
  • Pro-Choice Claim #15: “The Bible doesn’t say anything against abortion, and many Christians believe it’s acceptable.”
  • Conclusion: “How can I help save women and children from abortion?”

    Amazing resource to engage in the Pro Choice vs. Pro Life conversation with truth and grace. Randy succinctly and rationally refutes the top Pro Choice arguments. I feel way more equipped to defend the sanctity of life because of this great book.
