I had to take both sides of the abortion debate when I took a ‘speaking class’ for work several years ago. The topic was assigned. One day I spoke for seven minutes supporting abortion, the next day I spoke for seven minutes against abortion. I thought my arguments were pretty convincing either way. Of course in the end I just further solidified my pro-life stance. I’m glad pro-life was last because I think it left the best impression and may have had an effect on some co-workers in the class. Although I am entrenched prolife I think I can intelectually see both sides.
