Let’s at Least Understand Each Other

We do want pro-choice people’s minds to change about abortion. (We want to establish a pro-life consensus!) But sometimes, someone just isn’t ready to change their mind. In that case, it’s good to at least learn about their views and help them to learn about ours. That way, we can strengthen our relationship with them, we can become better pro-life advocates, and we can give them a better impression of the pro-life movement. If we’re lucky, maybe their mind will change after all, or at least we’ll be in a better position to change their mind in the future.

That being said, if someone really doesn’t want to talk about abortion, don’t force it. You might end up doing more harm than good if you’re too pushy.
