It’s another record-setting 40 Days for Life campaign, taking place in 622 cities worldwide—AND it’s election season here in the United States. That can only mean one thing: The abortion industry has gone into overdrive spouting ridiculous pro-abortion talking points.

Planned Parenthood and its allies say a lot of things that are dead wrong, and we’ve covered many of them on the podcast. But on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we count down the silliest, most embarrassing, most cringeworthy defenses of abortion that abortion advocates are trying to present as serious arguments.

We discuss:

  • Stacey Abrams' outrageous claim that fetal heartbeats are "manufactured";
  • Whether pro-lifers oppose abortion because they want to "control women's bodies";
  • What feelings have to do with the science of when life begins;
  • And more!
