    • As pro-lifers we need to understand stem cell research for the same reason we need to understand abortion: both wrongfully take the lives of innocent human beings. How is stem cell research done? What are the differences between embryonic and adult stem cell research? What are the moral implications? How can I respond to common pro-embryonic stem cell arguments? These questions and more are answered in this presentation.
    • Q&A Questions:
      • “Are all embryonic stem cells rejected when implanted into a patient’s body?”
      • “If adult stem cell research is so much more effective, why do some scientists want to pursue embryonic stem cell research?”
      • “Why did President Obama decide to take money away from adult stem cell research?”
      • “How would personhood legislation effect cloning and stem cell research?”

    • Many people automatically associate Planned Parenthood with abortion. It’s appropriate; they are the nation’s leading abortion provider. However, there’s a lot more to Planned Parenthood than just abortions. After discussing many of these sordid details, Josh details his controversial opinion that Planned Parenthood is NOT a racist organization, and responds to the counter-arguments often made about this subject.

    • Questions:
      • When Planned Parenthood sells fetal body parts, do they think those are human body parts? And if they don’t think they’re human, why would they try to hide that they’re selling them?
      • We have all these Live Action sting videos. Why aren’t the clinics shown in the tapes shut down, or the employees fired?
      • Do you think Planned Parenthood’s close relationship with politically powerful people are why regulations for their clinics seems to be so lax?
      • Do you think Planned Parenthood’s higher clinic standards gives more credibility to the abortion industry?
      • How would you respond to someone who says abortion should be available to women who would die or were raped?

    • Questions:
      • I heard of an abortion clinic owner who is a racist and has said he wants to eliminate Hispanic babies.
      • If focusing on racism saves more babies by hurting Planned Parenthood, shouldn’t we focus on racism?
      • Walter Hoye says that 100 years from now there’s not going to be a black race.
      • The Georgia “Endangered Species” billboards aren’t actually saying that Planned Parenthood is racist, are they?
      • But some good will come from the billboards, right?
      • But there was a lot of buzz about it…
      • In the end, isn’t the goal to keep this stuff out there? And if some people have a different way of doing that, isn’t that good?
      • We’re never going to be able to do anything perfectly, because as soon as it wouldn’t offend anybody, it wouldn’t help.
      • How does Planned Parenthood get into schools, and what can I do about it?
      • But a non-Planned Parenthood presenter would probably be teaching the same information, so is that any better?
      • If there’s more than one abortion facility in town, and one of them is Planned Parenthood, should we focus on Planned Parenthood?
      • Do you have a training for sidewalk counseling?

      • “What are your views on stem cell research?”
      • “Are they only using deformed embryos for stem cell research, or do they use healthy embryos too?”

Josh discusses common ground, good versus faulty pro-life arguments, comparing Trinidad’s situation with the United States as regards to abortion, and responding to the main arguments International Planned Parenthood is making for legalizing abortion in Trinidad. After the show, the young radio engineer said he had never heard the pro-life view defended in the way I talked about it. He hadn’t really cared about it before, but he did now. He said he just hadn’t heard anyone take my approach of using common ground. We later learned the radio station ended up airing the interview at least once a day for several weeks!
