One Minute Pro-Life Case

Could you make a pro-life case in one minute?

Would you know what to say?
Every day we have opportunities. We can make a great impact if we think about what we might say beforehand. If speaking to a woman, how about something like this:
~~> If the unborn is growing, that unborn must be alive.

~~> And if it has human parents, it must be human.

~~> And living humans, or human beings like you and I, are valuable, aren’t they?

~~> From conception, all that’s added to the unborn is a proper environment and adequate nutrition. But those are the same things all of us need.

~~> And not only that. There’s one quality all of us have equally that demands equal treatment:
we all have a human nature.

~~> Racism and sexism are wrong because they pick out external differences and ignore the underlying similarity between men and women, blacks and whites.

~~> And my concern is for your rights as a woman, that you can vindicate them against the will of the majority; but you can only vindicate your rights if you base them on your human nature.

~~> But the unborn also has that same human nature, so shouldn’t we protect the unborn from discrimination just like we protect minorities and women?

Outline of the One-Minute Pro-Life Apologist

1. The unborn is a human being.

2. Born or unborn, all of us need only a proper environment and adequate nutrition.

3. There is one equal quality among all valuable human beings: human nature

4. To vindicate women’s rights we must base our case on human nature. If human nature is the valuable thing about women, and the unborn has it, we should protect the unborn just like we protect women.
