Free Advance Pro-Life Argument Course

Below you will find links to a free course on pro-life arguments taught by Scott Klusendorf of the Life Training Institute and Scott Rae.

The course description is as follows:

Successful pro-life apologists pursue four essential tasks. First, they clarify the debate by focusing public attention on one key question: What is the unborn? Second, they establish a foundation for the debate, demonstrating to critics that metaphysical neutrality is impossible. Third, they answer objections persuasively. Fourth, they teach and equip.

The course videos are as follows:
