[Editor’s Note: There are some excellent principles here. We’re not advocating women enter into politics by publishing this. The pro-life movement is on the offense and Planned Parenthood has a crumbling defense. Many of us what to help keep the momentum going. There will be opportunities for conversations we’ve not had before. Warren Cole Smith’s interview with Scott Klusendorf is an excellent help.]

Scott Klusendorf is the founder and president of Life Training Institute, an organization that helps pro-life advocates define their views in the public square. Klusendorf has traveled the world making the pro-life case, sometimes by debating people in the abortion industry. We had this conversation at Summit Ministries, a Christian worldview training center in Manitou Springs, Colo., where Klusendorf is a regular speaker.

Your basic argument is the syllogism, that a fetus is really a human being and really a baby. If so, and it is wrong to kill a human being, then therefore it’s wrong to abort. Just to tighten that up a little bit, we’re not claiming that it’s always wrong to kill a human being. We’re saying it’s wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human being, and elective abortion does that. We’re not making the claim you can never kill a human being, just for clarity’s sake.
