The Equal Rights Argument for Fetal Personhood

The Equal Rights Argument for Fetal Personhood

April 27, 2017 12:00 ET
In 2013, a group of advocates from multiple pro-life organizations started heavily experimenting with a different way of arguing for the personhood of the unborn. There was genuine shock at how much more effective it was at changing the minds of pro-choice people than any other argument that had used before. It is called the Equal Rights Argument. This argument masterfully takes premises that almost all pro-choice people already strongly agree with, and demonstrates that the only reasonable conclusion is that the unborn is a person with a right to live. Come join Josh Brahm as he shares how the Equal Rights Argument is powerfully persuasive to help save the lives of the unborn. Josh

Come join Josh Brahm as he shares how the Equal Rights Argument is powerfully persuasive to help save the lives of the unborn.

Josh Brahm has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18. After 12 years of full-time pro-life work he launched Equal Rights Institute to maximize his impact for the movement.

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 podcast that's attached to the Equipped for Life course. He's also a regular blogger for LifeNews.com and the ERI blog, blog.EqualRightsInstitute.com.

Josh has been happily married to his wife, Hannah, for eleven 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!"
