Are the Lives of the Unborn of Less Importance than the Choice of the Mother?

Oct 02, 2019

Does autonomy and self-determination outweigh the life inside the womb? Do all children—both born and unborn—deserve the protections afforded to us as inalienable rights? This week, Jo and Vince answer a sensitive question about abortion, discussing their personal experience with their son’s earliest weeks of life, the philosophical issue of when “personhood” begins, the societal implications of denying personhood to certain classes of people, and the biblical understanding of a God who loves every person and was willing to go to great lengths to give life to his children.

Question Asked in This Episode:
“How would you respond to the claim that the lives of the unborn are of less importance than the choice of the mother?”
