Wednesday, 22 January 2014, marks the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs Wade and Doe vs Bolton decisions legalizing the killing of pre-born children in America. Trent Horn is an appropriate Guest for this week’s “The Quest for a Culture of Life in America” program.

Trent holds a Master’s degree in Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville and is currently an apologist and speaker for Catholic Answers. He specializes in training pro-lifers to intelligently and compassionately engage pro-choice advocates in genuine dialogue. He is the author of Answering Atheism and Making the Case for Life (DVD), both published by Catholic Answers.

Making the Case for Life is a very valuable teaching tool for transforming any abortion debate into a fruitful conversation–one that opens minds and hearts to the humanity of the pre-born child while maintaining a non-confrontational environment. Trent’s approach has been developed by refining ideas of seasoned pro-life leaders and applying them with hundreds of college students.

Survivors are anyone born since Roe vs Wade made abortion legal in every state, at any age, for any reason. The particular Survivors we will be chatting with have either been through a “pro-life boot camp” or are in the current “camp” in southern California. These are young adults 14-29 who have paid almost $500 to be immersed in the pro-life movement with two-solid weeks of seminars and activism. They graduate with the energy, enthusiasm, commitment, knowledge, and experience to be the pro-life leaders in our communities for years to come.
