96: Apologetics That Reach the Heart
#96
Last Tuesday at 1:52 PM

So often while doing pro-life outreach we talk to people who are reluctant to make any sacrifices for those around them because few if any have ever made sacrifices for them. We discuss a conversation that Cam recently had where this idea came up and we walk through how to walk through these types of dialogues.

90: The WORST Pro-Abortion Arguments
#90
04/05/2022

In this episode Pieter and Cam talk through some pro-abortion arguments that pro-lifers may struggle with not because they are well formed, but more because they are well worded.
