Titles of Talks Given by David C. Reardon

I’ve given well over a hundred presentations on post-abortion related issues. Below are some of the titles which will give you ideas for titling my talk for your group. The titles also either major or minor variations in my presentations.

These titles are organized into five general categories. Category 1 and 2 always involve some overlap. If the audience is mostly just interested in the facts about how abortion hurts women, I will still spend at least a small amount of time on how this knowledge should lead us to help others. Conversely, even if the focus is on post-abortion healing and the injury is already generally understood by the audience, I will quickly run through a review of post-abortion trauma and the challenges shame, guilt and denial present to healing, outreach, and conversion.

Similarly, talks focused on Category 3 will include an overview of Category 1. If the audience is limited to legislators, little if anything will be addressed from Category 2 topics. For more general audiences, Category 2 will also be touched upon since post-abortion healing and conversion is a vital part of our strategic goal.

For most of my speaking engagements, I give a Category 3 talk trying to give an overview of both 1,2, and 3 material. While it is impossible to do a thorough job covering all three topics in a single hour (much less 40 minutes), the response from audiences and sponsors has always been very positive. If the opportunity is available, however, it is better to have two talks. In the first talk I cover Category 1 and some of 2. In the second talk, I cover the strategic issues education, legislation, and post-abortion outreach.
