If you’ve ever felt intimidated when trying to defend your views on abortion, I hope you’ll listen in to this podcast. Scott Klusendorf knows every abortion argument in the book. He has approached the subject in scholarly debates centered on philosophy, theology, public policy, ethics and reproductive rights.
He joined us this week to discuss his article Dead Silence: Must the Bible Say Abortion is Wrong Before We Can Know it is Wrong?
Abortion advocates contend that the Bible is silent on abortion and that none of the biblical passages cited by pro‐life advocates actually say the unborn are human. Are we to conclude from this alleged silence that elective abortion is morally permitted? There are good reasons to say no. Klusendorf presents a three-fold argument based on the content of Scripture, the intrinsic worth of each human life and equality of human rights.
The discussion also overflows with hope for women and men who have chosen abortion. Scott offers hope based on the truth found in God’s word and the mercy in the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ.
