Online For Life, an Innovative Pro-Life Organization

I heard of Online For Life several months ago, but hadn’t yet taken the time to learn about what they do. Then a friend of mine while discussing pro-life strategy mentioned them and had some great things to say. This morning I read an interview with their founder Brian Fisher on LifeSiteNews. You should check it out.

I’m encouraged to know that there is another innovative pro-life organization that doesn’t want to just stick with doing the same thing simply because that’s what they did 30 years ago. (No, I’m not naming names of organizations that do that here, even if you ask.) I’ll just say that I’m most impressed with organizations that think outside the box and try new things, particularly things that are measurable. Students for Life of America and Justice For All have done a great job changing things up, and I know they aren’t the only ones.

A few of my favorite quotes from Brian in the interview:

“What we did two years ago we don’t do anymore, and what we do now, we won’t do two years from now.”

“…if it we can’t measure it, we won’t do it. The second part to that is that if we can measure it, we can improve it.”

Josh Brahm is the President of Equal Rights Institute, an organization that trains pro-life advocates to think clearly, reason honestly and argue persuasively.

Josh has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18. A sought-after speaker, Josh has spoken for more than 23,000 people in six countries and in 22 of the 50 states.

Josh’s primary passion is helping pro-life people to be more persuasive when they communicate with pro-choice people. That means ditching faulty rhetoric and tactics and embracing arguments that hold up under philosophical scrutiny.

He has publicly debated leaders from Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Georgians for Choice, and one of the leading abortion facilities in Atlanta.

Josh also wants to bring relational apologetics to the pro-life movement. “Some pro-choice people will not change their mind after one conversation on a college campus. Some of them will only change their mind after dozens of conversations with a person they trust in the context of friendship.”

Josh is formerly the host of a globally-heard podcast turned radio/TV show, Life Report. He now hosts the Equipped for Life Podcast. He’s also written dozens of articles for and the ERI blog.

He directed the first 40 Days for Life campaign in Fresno, resulting in up to 60 lives saved.

Josh has been happily married to his wife, Hannah, for 15 years. They have three sons, Noah, William, and Eli. They live in Charlotte, North Carolina.

David Bereit, the National Director of 40 Days for Life, sums up Josh’s expertise this way: “Josh Brahm is one of the brightest, most articulate, and innovative people in the pro-life movement. His cutting-edge work is helping people think more clearly, communicate more effectively, and — most importantly — be better ambassadors for Christ. I wholeheartedly endorse Josh’s work, and I encourage you to join me in following Josh and getting involved in his work today!”
