Persuasive Pro-Life: How to Talk About Our Culture’s Toughest Issue
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.

I like this book as it seems to be comprehensive in regards to defending life. I need to study it to be able to have a good command of the literature but realize I have to rely on the Holy Spirit to assist me. I like the urging to be compassionate in listening to the pro choice aspects.
