Abortion Debate with Scott Klusendorf of the Life Training Institute

Although we both look like luminescent ghosts, here is the video from my debate with Scott Klusendorf of the Life Training Institute on March 29th. My general feeling is that my performance was good, but not spectacular. I was trying to do a number of things in this debate which pro-choice advocates rarely seem to attempt, and I am more happy with the outcome of some of my strategies than others. I will write a full rundown of the debate, complete with debating tips for pro-choice debaters, as soon as I can.

Scott was a worthy opponent: charming, funny, well-spoken, and quite charismatic. Sadly, after the debate he accused me of lying regarding his views on abortion and the death penalty, which made the experience more acrimonious than it should have been. Happily, he retracted fully that claim after discussion with me on his blog.
