What I used in the above conversation was a variation of a tactic I learned from Greg Koukl known as “Trotting in the Toddler.” Trotting in the toddler is a method used to help the proponent of abortion see that whatever arbitrary reason or standard they give to validate or justify abortion; ultimately fails to be a valid reason to kill a toddler or in this case human beings in a building. Furthermore, what this reveals is that the proponent of abortion assumes that the unborn is not a human being right out of the gate. For if they had started with the proper presupposition they would never attempt to justify murdering an innocent unborn human being because of say, hardship. Hardship is not an excuse for homicide! It is their presupposition and it is a very dangerous one at that, as their failure to acknowledge the unborn as a human being results in murder.
