Josh Brahm has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18. After 12 years of full-time pro-life work he launched Equal Rights Institute to maximize his impact for the movement.

Josh’s primary passion is helping pro-life people to be more persuasive when they communicate with pro-choice people. That means ditching faulty rhetoric and tactics and embracing arguments that hold up under philosophical scrutiny.

Josh also wants to bring relational apologetics to the pro-life movement. “Some pro-choice people will not change their mind after one conversation on a college campus. Some of them need relationship.”

He has publicly debated leaders from Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Georgians for Choice, and one of the leading abortion facilities in Atlanta.

Josh is formerly the host of a globally-heard podcast turned radio/TV show, Life Report. He’s a regular blogger for and the ERI blog,

He directed the first 40 Days for Life campaign in Fresno, resulting in up to 60 lives saved.

He has been happily married to his wife, Hannah, for eight years. They have three sons, Noah, William and Eli, and live in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of Pro-Life Action League sums up Josh’s expertise this way: “Josh Brahm is a gift to the pro-life movement! His keen insights into how pro-choice people think — and how we pro-lifers can best dialogue with them — are desperately needed today. With his enthusiasm, curiosity and penetrating intelligence, Josh is transforming the way pro-life people talk about the abortion issue, and helping us all to share the pro-life message more effectively.
