Scott Klusendorf will debate tonight at Bowling Green State University

Scott Klusendorf, the top pro-life debater on planet Earth, will be facing James Croft in Bowling Green, OH on Thursday at 7 PM.

  • Where: 101 Olscamp Hall, Bowling Green State University
  • When: 7 p.m. Thursday
  • Speakers: Scott Klusendor and James Croft


The debate was organized by Veritas, the Christian Catholic Student Life Group that normally hosts similar events, but its members realized that a debate featuring speakers for the other side as well would be more constructive, said Eric Bower, president of the Bowling Green Secular Society that is now co-hosting the event.

“We thought it would be an excellent opportunity for discussion,” Bower said. “Hopefully the atmosphere will lead to a uniting of the community over the idea of healthy debate and talking.”

The focus of the debate will be two professional speakers, one brought in by each group, who will discuss and answer questions about abortion, according to a press release emailed by Veritas.

The speaker for the abortion rights arguments will be James Croft, a doctoral candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education who is the vice president of the Humanist Graduate Community at Harvard and elected Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

The speaker for the anti-abortion arguments will be Scott Klusendorf, the founder and president of the Life Training Institute in Atlanta, Ga. He is a graduate of UCLA who has debated or lectured to student groups at more than 70 colleges and universities around the nation. He is also the author of “The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture.”
