We oppose abortion because it purposefully kills innocent children.
But have you ever heard someone say abortion actually saves kids? This is one of those objections that is just so strange, you have to hear it to believe it.
That’s why you should check out the video below. It features frontline GoPro footage where a teacher tells our team, “I love that [high schoolers] have abortions.”
When pressed to explain, he argues that abortion helps kids—but, of course, he’s only thinking of kids who happen to be born, like him.

The argument that abortion helps kids conveniently leaves out a whole class of young humans: those not yet born. So how do we move forward in meaningful dialogue? Here are a couple pointers.
Quick Conversation Tips: “Kids need abortion to stay in school.”
- Underscore Agreement: The person to whom you’re talking probably agrees with you that we shouldn’t kill babies so their parents can stay in school. So where you disagree is not on the moral principle but instead the question of who counts as a “baby.” Underscore this by asking, “What if a high school senior had a two-month-old that was making it hard to plan for college. Should the mother kill that born baby to stay in school?” They’ll probably say, “No, of course not.” Then you move on to the second point…
- Clarify the Disagreement: Now that you agree parents shouldn’t kill their babies to stay in school, ask, “Who counts as a baby?” The definition they give will probably apply to the preborn fetus, too. For example, they may say, “A baby is any young human.” Your response: “Did you know there is biological consensus that the fetus is a human being?”
