Can you be secular and pro-life? (PODCAST)

Pro-Life Humanists Speak Out

Secular humanist Kristine Kruszelnicki wrote a very controversial article recently titled “Yes, there are pro-life atheists out there. Here’s why.” In it, she argues that human rights belong to all human beings, including those who have yet to be born. She believes that being pro-life isn’t just the territory of the religious, but that there is a secular argument for being pro-life as well.

In this episode of the Freedom Report podcast, Kruszelnicki speaks about the arguments related to abortion and why she thinks that the only moral and ethical position is to be pro-life. How does she get there? Listen in and find out!

    Didn’t realize pro-life and atheist and/or libertarian was such a crazy idea.

    You don’t have to believe in god to recognize that a fetus is a living being. and maybe should merit legal protection. And libertarians are supposed to be about personal responsibility, so why not say “if you choose to get pregnant, you’re responsible for raising the child?”

    Wait – some people actually believe that you cannot be atheist and pro-life at the same time? To suggest that being secular and pro-life are mutually exclusive only lends credence to the ridiculous notion that atheists are immoral because they have no god to guide them. I’m an atheist and pro-life. I’m also a Libertarian and pro-life. I probably wouldn’t ban abortion if it was up to me (because what the hell am I going to do with 1.2 million unwanted babies every year?), but I have the utmost contempt for the act of terminating a fetus.

    I completely agree with Kristine Kruszelnicki’s position and very much enjoyed this interview! I just wish the interview had been longer because the secular pro-life position is a crucial one for our society yet too rarely heard discussed in depth. I would strongly advise having Kristine on for another interview and for a longer segment because there is so much more that needs to be discussed on this very important topic that I’m not hearing anywhere else.
