COVID-19 is the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, a particularly dangerous form of the coronavirus. Thus far, 30,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 and it will get worse. Just how much worse remains to be seen. There are too many unknowns. Some medical experts predict millions of deaths worldwide unless we lockdown society and enforce strict social distancing for 12 to 18 months. Given these unknowns, how should pro-life Christians respond to COVID-19? Do doctors have a corner on how we structure society in light of a pandemic or do we need voices beyond the hard sciences? Are pro-life advocates who question a prolonged economic lockdown trading lives for profits, thus undermining their core principles?

This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Scott Klusendorf about his viewpoint article, “Covid-19 Do Pro-life Principles Require A Sustained Shut Down of the Economy? Who Decides?

Viewpoint articles address relevant contemporary issues in discernment and apologetics from a particular perspective that is usually not shared by all Christians, with the intended result that Christians’ thinking on that issue will be stimulated and enhanced (whether or not people end up agreeing with the author’s opinion).
