Download Audio MP3 | 00:12:52

When the first Women’s March happened in 2017, I was a senior in College. I was taking women’s studies classes, so I was surrounded by people who were promoting, organizing, and going to the Women’s March. I felt immersed in that culture, and it was a really interesting experience for me.

This post, inspired by that experience, takes that Women’s March and pro-choice activism and looks at what pro-life advocates can learn from what they did right and discusses what we should do differently.

This is the last in a series of three pieces that I wrote on the topic of fetus tunnel vision. The first piece defines fetus tunnel vision and gives four arguments for why pro-life people should not have it. The second responds to some concerns and complaints about the piece. And this third piece addresses more questions.

PODCAST: Responding to Concerns Regarding My “Fetus Tunnel Vision” Piece

The previous audio blog, “Fetus Tunnel Vision: 4 Reasons Pro-Lifers Need to Stop Doing This,” was a relatively controversial piece that I wrote about 5 years ago. Some people loved it, some hated it, and some had really good questions. I ended up writing 2 follow-up pieces responding to the concerns and questions I was seeing as I publicly engaged people on this issue. This is the first.

PODCAST: Fetus Tunnel Vision: 4 Reasons Pro-Lifers Need to Stop Doing This

Download Audio MP3 | 00:09:59

Here at ERI we like to help pro-life people not be weird. About 5 years ago, a Students for Life staff person reached out to me asking for an example of a weird thing pro-life people do. The first thing that came to my mind was what we call fetus tunnel vision.

This was something I had been thinking about for years. In the first several years after 9/11, every time the anniversary came around I would see a lot of pro-life people posting on social media comparing the number of people who died on 9/11 to the number of babies aborted every day. This article and the following in the series explain why this is a bad idea.

PODCAST: Building Rapport with a Benevolent Dictator

Download Audio MP3 | 00:04:31

Many conversations about abortion succeed or fail because of your rapport, or lack thereof, with the pro-choice person. Even a perfectly articulated pro-life argument will just glance off of a combative pro-choice mind, so people who are skilled at dialogue use wisdom to build rapport and make the tone of the conversation friendly.

This piece gives a kind of interesting dialogue tip that has made a huge difference in building rapport in my conversations. I didn’t even notice it was significant until my colleague Rachel pointed it out.
