Why We're Pro-Life

This booklet serves two functions. First, it provides us the words, ideas, sentences, rhetoric, and yes, confidence, to talk to anyone about abortion. Second, it serves as a resource that is easy to carry and easy to give away. A person reluctant to engage another on the question of abortion can simply hand him or her this booklet and say, “Well, perhaps you will read this.” 

The Human-Rights Issue of Our Age

  • The recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling in June was a monumental victory for the pro-life movement after nearly 50 years of blanket legalized abortion across America.
  • Rightly so, elation ensued from pro-life organizations like Catholic Answers at the decision, and groups and individuals who had been fighting for the life of unborn children from the very beginning felt a sense of justice for the most vulnerable in our society.
  • This booklet expressly addresses the legal and cultural landscape of the new post-Roe world, in which for the first time in half a century there isn’t a radical pro-abortion premise enshrined in the law.
  • It carefully avoids the common charge that abortion is a church-state issue in that it appeals only to (up to date) science and to broadly shared beliefs about human rights. Not religion.
  • It strikes a reasonable tone of peaceful dialogue, much needed during a time of rising temperatures in the abortion debate and even violence and vandalism directed at pro-lifers and churches.
  • It is backed by the Catholic Answers brand, which is the mark of quality, charity, and accessibility for a wide variety of readers, and by Catholic Answers’ broad and robust distribution network.

What People Are Saying

"Trent Horn is among the most effective and reliable pro-life apologists in the world. Every pro-lifer needs to have a few copies of this booklet on-hand to make pro-life apologetics accessible to anyone — including their most pro-abortion friends."

—Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life Action and Students for Life of America

“This booklet is an excellent, quick read that will serve as a great tool for pro-life advocates as we work to make abortion unthinkable. In Why We’re Pro-Life, Trent answers the tough questions for those who are unsure about their views on abortion. The contents also serve as a welcome reminder to those of us who are staunchly pro-life about what it is we are fighting for: the recognition and dignity for precious unborn babies. We’re up against an abortion regime that wants to continue permeating our culture with lies that pit moms against their babies. This booklet cuts through their noise and promotes the truth that every person, especially vulnerable babies in the womb, deserve equal protection under the law with no exceptions.”

—Prudence Robertson, Host of “EWTN Pro-Life Weekly”


“In this wonderful essay, Trent Horn tackles what is probably the most contested issue of our time—abortion. He has the uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter with compelling illustrations and pithy arguments and explains the pro-life view in a way that is accessible, clear, and compassionate. Why We’re Pro-Life is the sort of booklet that an advocate for the sanctity of human life can hand out to friends and family members with full confidence they will be either challenged (if they support abortion rights) or encouraged (if they are pro-life) but never not moved to think.” 

—Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, Baylor University
