SPEECH: Why Every Teenager Should Be Equipped In Pro-Life Apologetics

Download Audio MP3 | 00:58:23

This is a speech and Q&A session I gave at a homeschool conference in Atlanta this year. I describe what it’s currently like to be a pro-life student on a college campus as well as the concepts that teenagers should be equipped in before they graduate high school.

After the speech I answered these questions:

  1. 50:09: When do you tell your kids about abortion?
  2. 54:17: What are your thoughts about sidewalk counseling ministry?

During Q&A I spontaneously talked about what youth pastors can do to prevent abortions in their churches because there was at least one youth pastor in the audience. That part starts at 52:34.

“Why Every Teenager Should be Equipped in Pro-Life Apologetics Before College”

We will not stop abortion without good parenting from pro-life parents. Josh will share some research on how many Christian students leave the faith during college, and how this trend can be largely curbed by equipping students in apologetics before they walk onto a hostile college campus. Josh will then share some of what his colleagues have been learning about how best to defend the Christian worldview regarding abortion when engaging with leftist atheists, and a new tool that makes it easier for parents to equip their teens in pro-life apologetics as a part of their worldview training at home.
