    Abortion Versus the Death Penalty

    Abortion Versus the Death Penalty

    Ep 90.  If you are against abortion, does that mean you must be against capital punishment too?  In this episode, we'll talk about how opposing one does not necessitate opposing the other to be consistent, the idea that "killing is killing," and we'll talk about how the man in this clip proves that he, in some way, knows that abortion is wrong, even if he won't tell anyone so.  Debrief with us!

    Gruesome...But Justifiable?

    Gruesome...But Justifiable?

    Ep 89.  In this week's episode, we talk about a conversation had between Isaac and a woman at a college who turned out to be a signature collector for the radical pro-abortion amendment that will likely be on the ballot his fall.  She supported abortion, despite agreeing that it is gruesome, saying our signs only show "one aspect of abortion."  We'll talk about that and more in this episode.  Come debrief with us!

    Show Notes
    Love Unleashes Life is a book written by Stephanie Gray Connors, which talks a lot about how to communicate the truth about abortion in a loving way.

    When Being Human Isn't Enough

    When Being Human Isn't Enough

    Ep 88.  If you thought being a human was enough to protect you from discrimination, think again!  At least according to this student who Maggie talked to at a high school, you need humanity plus something else: a certain size body!  (We are not sure what size is value-giving, but apparently it's not the size you are right at the beginning of your life.)  Now, how does this fit with human equality?  We're not sure, but we're talking about it in this episode!  Come debrief with us.

    Show Notes
    Seth referenced Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan.
    Seth also referenced this part in James.
    Here is a very good video of Stephanie Gray Connors debunking the famous, pro-abortion, violinist argument.
    Peter Singer is a proponent of infanticide and is the author of a book called Practical Ethics.
    A follow-up to Practical Ethics, Why Should the Baby Live is the name of an article written by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva.

    Is an Acorn an Oak Tree? Let's Discuss!

    Is an Acorn an Oak Tree? Let's Discuss!

    Ep 87.  Those who advocate for abortion think they are so clever when they ask this question of pro-lifers: is an acorn an oak tree?  A student at Virginia Commonwealth University asked this question of Elijah, and in this episode, we'll have Elijah himself on to talk about the conversation with us and discuss how to respond to this question, and we also talk about his experience as an intern with Created Equal and why YOU should do our internship!

    Anthony Levatino used to perform abortions but he stopped after a family tragedy and now he is a powerful pro-life advocate.

    The Limits of Free Speech: Why It Doesn't Allow Abortion

    The Limits of Free Speech: Why It Doesn't Allow Abortion

    Ep 86.  This may sound crazy, but freedom has limits, and so does free speech!  The uninhibited right to free speech does not allow you to do just anything.  For example, it does not allow you to physically harm or kill others.  Grace had a conversation with a young man who said that people should have the free speech to abort.  Debrief with us as we discuss why that is just not true.

    Show Notes
    Atheist Sam Harris said in his book The End of Faith, " Some propositions are so dangerous that it may even be ethical to kill people for believing them."
    John Stonestreet said on Twitter, "Ideas have consequences.  Bad ideas have victims."

Accessible apologetics!

This is a great podcast for learning pro-life apologetics! Created Equal does a excellent job of addressing actual pro-abortion arguments from actual conversations. And the hosts (love you Lexie and Seth!) both have years of experience talking to abortion advocates. Lexie and Seth clearly and winsomely explain how to dismantle arguments used to justify baby killing in a loving and gentle manner.

So buckle up! Because after listening to this podcast you won’t be able to wait to use the apologetics you learned in your next conversation about abortion.

Critical thinking at its finest

Excellent podcast discussing real life interactions. Great job analyzing those conversations and sharing practical ways to change hearts and minds for truth.

Debrief the Debrief

I wish I always had someone else listening with me so we could debrief The Debrief. I love this podcast. The rich conversation and excellent content are perfectly paired with fun. Lexie makes me smile out loud. Great job, Esther, Seth, and Lexie!
