In this episode, I'm going to play a conversation I had with Grace and Eden from "Abortion. It's a Black and White Issue." It was a really great conversation, and I think my American listeners will be especially interested in hearing some of the differences between anti-abortion activism in the U.S. and the U.K. I encourage you to go give them a follow on Instagram especially, where they produce some loud, sassy, fantastic anti-abortion content.

In this episode of the Fight Death podcast, we're going to be exploring red herrings: what they are and how to respond to them. I'm continuing with a slightly longer episode format, and a little less scripted. Tell me your thoughts!
If you want to support the show, use this affiliate link (I get a small cut of the profit, but you don't pay extra!) to pick up a copy of An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments, which I mention toward the end of this episode. It's a great little guide to logical fallacies, and it makes a nifty teaching tool for kids. Plus, it's a nice coffee table book!
This is a tough one. We're going to spend the next several episodes talking about rape and abortion. I'm marking these episodes as explicit, but I am not detailing the act of rape.
Today we're going to look at the data surrounding rape and abortion and try to answer two key questions: what percentage of rapes result in abortion, and what percentage of abortions result from rapes?
In this episode, I talk about Greg Koukl's technique: "trotting out the toddler."
We established in the last episode that there isn't a morally significant difference between a pre-born and a born human being. That means that any reason we give to justify abortion, i.e. the killing of a pre-born human being, must also be able to justify killing a born human being. Vice versa, if its a bad reason to kill a born human being, then its a bad reason to kill a pre-born human being.

In this episode, I cover the SLED framework from Greg Koukl.
SLED is an acronym that stands for Size, Level of Development, Environment, and Degree of Dependency. These are the four categories of differences between a pre-born and a born human being. But none of these categories are morally significant: if they would justifying killing a pre-born human being, they would also justify killing a born one.
