LATEST ARTICLE: Why Viability Is the Least Plausible Definition of Personhood

One of the most common pro-choice personhood arguments is viability, meaning the ability to survive outside of a uterus.

In this post Josh explains how to discuss the topic, and why it’s such a weak argument. He includes a story of a conversation he had with “Luke” at Davidson Community College who made a particularly arbitrary version of this argument.

LATEST PODCAST: LIVE SPEECH AUDIO: Keynotes and Panel Q&A with Josh Brahm & David Bereit

We just posted the audio from our favorite pro-life event of 2017! Last November The Holy Family Respect Life Committee, in conjunction with Charles County Right to Life, invited Josh Brahm and David Bereit to speak at their annual pro-life conference in Southern Maryland.

They both gave keynote speeches and then took questions on a panel. Topics include how the pro-life movement can become more effective, how college students are shaping the pro-life movement, using social media for good, increasing local activism levels, what we can learn from the same-sex marriage movement, and more!

One Thing Every Pastor Can Do to Prevent Abortions in Their Congregation

I’d like to suggest one minimal leadership decision that any pastor or parish priest can make that is likely to save lives within their congregations: make a public commitment on behalf of the whole church that they will treat women who become pregnant with grace and compassion instead of shame and rejection.

The Equipped for Life Course is Now Available!

Just two months after starting Equal Rights Institute, Josh and Timothy Brahm gave their first seminar together on pro-life dialogue. In order for that to be possible, they had to very quickly take their growing body of original content and combine it with the most helpful tools they had learned from other pro-life leaders.

From August 2014 to August 2016 only about four hundred individuals had the opportunity to experience ERI’s full seminar in pro-life dialogue. Until now.

Learn About Our Advisory Board!

We’ve purposefully put together an advisory board of people whose advice we not only respect, but who have a diverse set of experiences and areas of expertise. By having all of these people speaking into what we’re doing on an ongoing basis, we’re confident that we can direct Equal Rights Institute into becoming the best that it can be.

This advisory board is different than our Board of Directors, who meet quarterly to provide accountability, go over our financial reports, and make the decisions that only a Board of Directors can make. In contrast, the members of the Board of Advisors will meet with Josh one-on-one at least once a year to discuss our vision and offer their counsel.
