JFA Mentors in Dialogue with Pro-Choice Advocates at UNT
I’m proud of the JFA team. Their manner is calm and their arguments are strong. The last frame of this video is most important: What do you think?

Here’s a short video produced by JFA’s own Trent Horn: What do you think?
Watch This…Tuesday 8/25/09
Have you been turned off by apologetics in the past? Do you wonder if anyone really needs it? Are you unsure of what the word means at all? My friends Sean McDowell and Brett Kunkle are doing a live stream discussion on the need for engaging people in our culture in an intelligent, gracious, relevant […]

I’ll be the first to admit that my performance in this clip could be snappier. In short, I rambled and didn’t let her talk. Consequently, I think things weren’t as productive for this pro-choice advocate as they could have […]
Common Ground on Sex and Sex Ed?
The following video, taken at ASU earlier this year, illustrates how difficult it is for people to find common ground on sex and sex ed (see question 19 in Common Ground Without Compromise). http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=3186807&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=&fullscreen=1 Abortion Conversations– Sex Education from Evan Davis on Vimeo.

I pay tribute to one special moment in Mother Teresa’s life when her “practice” helped her accomplish something great. She was the best kind of […]

The ASU student in the following video likens the unborn to a vegetable and then argues that “might makes right” is part of nature’s system of balance. I wonder if the two are connected? http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=3161215&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=&fullscreen=1Abortion Conversations– Does Might Make Right? from Evan Davis on Vimeo.
Dialogue Lab – Only One Question (Open Mic at ASU, part IV)
The following dialogue (4.5 minutes) begins with an ASU student making an interesting assertion: Pro-lifers should adopt all of the children who are born (if abortion is made illegal). As you watch, pause the video after this initial assertion and think of a question you can ask to help return the conversation to the question, […]

Should Third-Trimester Abortions Remain Legal? from Life Media Resources on Vimeo. Step 1: Listen to the first thoughts from this student at ASU. Stop the video. Step 2: Think of a question you can ask to build common ground with the speaker. Write your ideas in the comments section. Step 3: Now listen to the […]
