Person 1: Don’t judge me for my abortion. You haven’t lived my life. Person 2 (our hero): You’re right, I’m sure I can’t imagine what you’ve been through. I’m not here to attack you. Would you be willing to share more about your experience?

Women who get abortions are not our enemies. Be compassionate, and listen to understand. It’s not always time to make a pro-life argument. When people feel uncomfortable, they’re less likely to be open to new ideas anyway.

Person 1: I don’t regret my abortion. Person 2 (our hero): I’m glad you’re okay. If you’re willing to share, I’d be interested to hear what led you to seek an abortion.Person 1: I was raped. I got pregnant and I had an abortion. Person 2 (our hero): I’m so sorry to hear that. Rape is a terrible crime. Thinking about it makes me sick. Nobody should be forced into sex, and nobody should be forced to become pregnant.Person 1: You’re a man, so you can never truly understand what women go through. Person 2 (our hero): I totally agree. Let me ask a question; bear with me. Suppose I find a woman drowning her toddler. I don’t know what she’s going through. Should I intervene?Person 1: She had sex. She deserves to deal with pregnancy. Person 2 (our hero): Let’s not attack women. The best way to end abortion is to focus on the humanity of the preborn, and anyway women in crisis pregnancies aren’t our enemies.
