Pro-Choice Blogger on Why Men Should NOT Shut Up About Abortion

My pro-choice friend Deanna Young wrote a great blog post on this common pro-choice slogan. You should read the whole thing, but here’s my favorite quote:

Meet Deanna, my good friend.

Meet Deanna, my good friend.

“Another reason I don’t think men should shut up about abortion is because I don’t think anyone should shut up about abortion. I want to be on the right side of history and I think the right side is the one with the best arguments. The thing is, humans are terrible at taking a critical look at their own views. So, a good way to find out whether the pro-choice position is actually better than the pro-life position is to talk to pro-life people and see if our arguments hold up against theirs. But this kind of dialogue is impossible if we insist that half the population needs to shut up.”


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 uses speaking, writing and campus outreach to emphasize practical dialogue tips, pro-life philosophy, and relational apologetics.
