Is it probable to disagree effectively for the rights of the unborn to a physical audience? Just Google it!
Many were astounded when Tim Keller was invited to give a Google Talk back in 2008 about his book, “The Reason for God.” The tech giant, like many denizens of Silicon Valley, has a repute for being socially on-going and clinging to a set of values that are, shall we say, opposite than those of regressive Christians. By mouth-watering him to pronounce to its staff, Google signaled an openness, not only to Christian ideas, but to genuine and healthy dialogue.
Keller was even invited to pronounce a second time at Google. But recently, an even some-more startling Google Talk orator than Keller visited their headquarters.
Stephanie Gray is a Canadian pro-life apologist. She travels the universe making the case for the amiability and personhood of the unborn. She’s co-founder of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform and now leads a method called Love Unleashes Life.
Her pronounce at Google just a few days ago wasn’t just unprecedented, it was amazing. In fact, within 24 hours, it surpassed the recognition of another pronounce by Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards.
Stephanie non-stop by comparing the story of Captain Sully Sullenberger, the man who successfully landed a infirm airliner on the Hudson River in 2009, refusing to leave until all his passengers were safe, with the captain of the Italian Costa Concordia ship who fast jumped ship after it wrecked.
We rightly admire people like “Sully,” Stephanie said, since of 3 qualities. First, their eagerness to scapegoat for others, their viewpoint when faced with hardship, and their joining to do the right thing, even when it means being the last one out of a falling airplane.
But termination flies in the face of these excellent and drastic qualities. It promises an easy way out—erasing the consequences of sex as if nothing—or no one—ever happened.
Stephanie thinks we all know better at a low level. And she challenged her assembly with story after story of women who chose life, even in the toughest of circumstances, and who don’t bewail it.
Like my friend, Scott Klusendorf at the Life Training Institute, Stephanie knows that the arguments about choice, corporeal autonomy, financial hardship, or special cases are just distractions from the executive doubt that matters the most: Is the unborn human?
At Google, she marshaled systematic justification to show that the amiability and individuality are entirely benefaction from the beginning stages of gestation. She showed that an unborn baby’s dignified value is dynamic only by the form of thing it is, not its size, turn of development, environment, or grade of dependency.
And many importantly, she appealed to her audience’s dignified imagination, demonstrating because the others-centered adore compulsory to select life is the kind of thing we admire, the kind of thing we know is right, and the kind of choice no one regrets.
We can learn a thing or two from Stephanie. First, the case for life is strong. Her summary was one that even an overwhelmingly physical and on-going assembly could understand. She done non-religious arguments—what Chuck Colson would call prudential arguments—for the rights of the unborn. And then she employed an arsenal of stories that strengthen life in a way philosophical logic by itself never could. She even appealed to Google’s corporate motto, “Do the right thing,” adding: “even when it’s hard.”
And the second thing we can learn is that the dignified realities that Christians trust aren’t just loyal and defensible. They’re better! So many in the enlightenment these days are wondering not only if Christian law claims are true, but if they’re good.
We can and should know how to make the case for life just like Stephanie. Come to BreakPoint.org for a couple to her superb talk, and to find the book that taught me to make the case for life by Scott Klusendorf, called The Case for Life.
