Seth Gruber is one of our country’s youngest thought leaders on the issue of abortion and has been speaking publicly on behalf of unborn children since the age of 19. He has spoken across the U.S. educating and equipping pro-life advocates to be gracious and persuasive ambassadors for unborn children.
Seth travels and speaks in Protestant and Catholic high schools, churches, pro-life training seminars, and for pregnancy care clinic banquets across the nation.
First gaining exposure during his college years, Seth founded and directed the Right to Life Club at Westmont College. While there, he conducted regular educational displays on campus to challenge the institution for their refusal to take a formal position on abortion; making national conservative news doing so. During his summer’s between college, Seth worked as a full-time intern with The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform in Southern California, where he was equipped how to engage the issue of abortion with both boldness and grace.
Seth has been featured by World Magazine, World on Campus, American Family Association (AFA), Christianity Today, Life Site News, Students for Life of America, Christian Research Network, and has appeared on the Janet Mefferd Show.
A compelling and passionate voice for the unborn, Seth Gruber is reaching all generations with equal effectiveness and is helping change the way that our country thinks about and interacts with abortion.
For decades, there has been a crying need in the pro-life movement for leaders and speakers who are warm and compassionate, intelligent and articulate about the issue of abortion, and uncompromising in the stand they take. Seth Gruber is such a man. I was deeply moved when I had the honor of hearing him speak recently and I thank God for young people like him. I stand fully and enthusiastically behind his crucial ministry and pray he gets numerous chances to speak, minister and serve on behalf of the life of the unborn human persons in our midst.

Seth Gruber is a compelling speaker on behalf of the unborn. He has the rare balance of clear thinking with a compassionate heart. He cares deeply about precious unborn babies, and through stories and insightful examples, he brings the audience right along with him.

“Seth knocked it out of the park at our annual fundraising banquet last week. He was articulate, engaging and related to every age group in attendance. His obvious passion to speak on behalf of the unborn and encourage Christians to be more involved in standing up for pro-life issues was infectious and encouraging.
He went from the presentation to the pledge challenge seamlessly. This banquet turned out to be our best fundraiser ever.
With out a doubt, I highly recommend Seth as your next banquet or event speaker. Act quickly, because I am sure this young man is becoming very much in demand.”

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Seth Gruber during his years at Westmont, and our local church. But it was during a presentation he gave at a fundraiser for Network Medical that I experienced firsthand his gift and passion for speaking on behalf of the unborn. Seth has a remarkable ability to articulate a Christian worldview with nearly unassailable logic. Grounding himself in a clear understanding of God’s redemptive story, he can carefully navigate the battleground that abortion is in our culture, yet with a special sensitivity to the questions and objections that are commonly raised. I really appreciate how simply he breaks this apologetic down when training others who may not be as articulate or educated. He inspires confidence in this way, and I have often leaned on his expertise when treating the topic of abortion in our church and our prayer meetings. Seth is a powerful and convicting voice crying out for the voiceless.

I enthusiastically endorse Seth Gruber as a speaker and/or teacher for your church or school. He has spoken a number of times in my church, and has been articulate, engaging, and compelling. He challenges listeners to concepts that many take for granted or are entirely unfamiliar with. He comes prepared, well-groomed, and on time for his presentations.
Seth also has been well-regarded and well-received by others in ministry that I know. He has an excellent reputation and has shown that he is committed to Christ by a life that backs up that commitment.
Without question, someone who hears Seth will come away challenged and changed by his presentation style. He intends listeners to be moved to action and gears his message to that end.

It is with great enthusiasm we recommend Seth Gruber as a banquet or other event speaker. Seth is an articulate and engaging speaker whose appeal to our guests was all at once articulate and compelling, ending with Seth writing out his own check to the ministry. Seth’s presentation was both interesting and academic, appealing to a wide range of people. And while Seth was hired for his ability to clearly articulate both the vision and needs of pro-life organizations, his time spent speaking at a local school, and his ability to engage guests both before and after our banquet will have long term results in the success of our ministry to unborn babies and their parents. Seth is more than a gifted speaker, he is a young man raised in the pro-life movement with a heart for the unborn and their families, and a heart for Jesus Christ too!

Seth Gruber is as exceptional in communicating pro-life apologetics as he is a young man. I have had the privilege of knowing Seth throughout his college career as President of the Right to Life Club (started by Seth; the first ever at Westmont College) and as a volunteer for our medical clinic. He is articulate, passionate, compelling and winsome. The tools he imparts to his audience are not only practical and necessary in defending the sanctity of human life with clarity, intelligence and science, but one would be hard-pressed to argue his point with any efficacy. Seth’s message was received with enthusiasm when he was the Keynote Speaker for a past event and we are definitely planning to have him again.

We just had our banquet a few days ago and had a newcomer, Seth Gruber. AMAZING! He hit one out of the ballpark! Almost EVERY single response card commented on him as their favorite part of the event. One man wrote that he was pro-choice but that Seth’s presentation changed him to pro-life.
He was clear, articulate, engaging and compassionate. He also did the appeal. He did a great job on that, too, transitioning seamlessly from the presentation to the ask. He stayed on time and he was readily available to connect with us before the event. His fee is reasonable, but I think once the word gets out he will be in high demand.

Recently, Seth Gruber spoke in a chapel at Upland Christian Academy on the merits of the Pro-Life position. His presentation was clear, concise, and winsome. Our students left the chapel better equipped and more knowledgeable. Most importantly, the students learned how to make a case for the Pro-Life view in an attractive manner. After the chapel, Seth took time to meet with the faculty to give suggestions about how we can change our culture and serve in the Pro-Life arena. It was a great experience all around.

Seth Gruber spoke about the sanctity of life at one of the chapels at our school — Crean Lutheran High School. Seth’s message was very biblically sound and his argumentation for the defense of life was flawless. He was willing to stay for over an hour afterwards to speak with those that had further questions about his presentation. He answered every question logically and biblically. I was very pleased with his strong defense of the unborn. God Bless this ministry.
