Abortion Debate Stories

Secular Pro-Life is youth-led and has a majority youth membership. But we are not, officially, a youth organization. We welcome older adult supporters. I believe that we can learn a lot from more experienced pro-lifers.

Dr. Steven Zielinski-- whom I affectionately call Dr. Z.-- has been involved in the pro-life movement for decades. He is a physician, attorney, and master storyteller. In this audio clip, which is excerpted from a longer talk, he shares some of his experiences from the early 1980s. His stories remind us that in the battle for the right to life, sometimes our greatest weapon is a healthy sense of humor!

If you're thinking "I don't have time to listen to all 20 minutes of this," here's a take-away quote:
"Philosophers and theologians have not reached any agreement on when human life begins." Of course from the sidelines, I had to pop in, and I say "And by the way, phrenologists and shoe salesmen have not reached any agreement on when human life begins either. But the scientific community is pretty well organized on that..."
