116: Optimizing Campus Outreach | ft. Blaise Alleyne

Post-secondary campuses are often of the most important places for pro-lifers to have a regular presence, but there are often a lot of things that going into being effective on or around campuses.

In today's episode, Cam sits down with Blaise Alleyne, Eastern Outreach Director for CCBR and long time student and student leader at the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and probably a tonne of other campuses (the guy's a legend around most GTA campuses!), to talk about how to effectively engage this important demographic.

115. The Battle for Life in Michigan | ft. Kristen Day of Democrats for Life

The intersection between pro-life education and politics is constantly present, and in today's episode, Cam continues the conversation regarding the radical constitutional challenge in Michigan by talking with Kristen Day, president of Democrats for Life, about the role pro-life Democrats and even some moderate abortion advocates can play in rejecting an amendment which would make Michigan an abortion haven in America if accepted.

114: The Battle Begins in Michigan | ft. Trevor Pollo Protect Life Michigan

Podcast cover
Read more

In what feels eerily like a Helm's Deep-esque battle for the lives of Michigan's pre-born children, Protect Life Michigan, along with a handful of other pro-life organizations and groups, have risen up to defend the state's pre-born children against Planned Parenthood and their abortion supporting millionaires.

Today, Cam talks with Trevor Pollo, long time leader and team member with Protect Life Michigan, about the radical state constitutional amendment soon to be voted on which will not only strip the existing protection from pre-born children and make it nearly impossible to pass future protections for the weakest members of the human family, but which will surely serve as the sentry posted at the gate of nearly every other state with any protection for pre-born children.

Simply put, should the amendment be halted, it will be a tremendous act of defiance and a rallying cry for pro-lifers across the country that Planned Parenthood and their unbelievably deep pockets can be defeated. Should the amendment pass, Michigan will become one of, if not the most pro-abortion state in America, with Planned Parenthood only being emboldened to attack other states moving forward.

Now that we know the road map for effective conversations about abortion (see Episode 110 if you haven't already!), here are two common mistakes which pro-lifers often make (Cam included!) that we need to work to avoid to ensure the pro-life worldview is clearly communicated and accepted.

Thanks (yet again!) for your patience in posting; Cam and his wife just welcomed little one number two to this side of the womb, hence no episode last week while we spent time with our new addition and helped our two year old with the transition!

Sometimes conversations about abortion can feel like you are stumbling around in the dark, somewhat randomly rolling out arguments in hopes that they will resonate with the person you are speaking with. In today's episode, Cam talks through a simple road map that you can apply in nearly every conversation you have to ensure that you connect with the person/people you are speaking with, and have an intentional plan for how you will walk with them towards the pro-life worldview.

While it may be tempting to respond with one of several quick rebuttals, in today's episode Cam talks through some of the background behind this question and how to offer a clear and concise response.

108: Responding with Charity in the Face of Hysteria | ft. Josh Brahm

Podcast cover

Even before the overturning of Roe, abortion advocates frequently responded to the proposition that society can (and should) function without abortion with varying degrees of hysteria.

This has only been amplified since the Dobbs decision, and in today's episode Cam is joined by Josh Brahm of the Equal Rights Institute to talk about how to keep the conversation moving in a productive way when the person you're talking with is somewhat (or full-blown!) frantic about the idea of limiting abortion access.

For almost 50 years, abortion access has been out of the hands of the American people with the Roe v.

Today, Cam is joined by legendary pro-life leader Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, to talk about what this means for blue, red, and swing states, and what pro-lifers need to know to protect pre-born children and ensure parents get the support that they need.
