Wonder is a family drama based on the young adult novel by R.J. Palacio. Its protagonist is a boy named Auggie Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) who was born with a genetic facial abnormality. He has undergone multiple surgeries and medical treatment since he was born, and because of that has been homeschooled up until now. His parents decide to enroll him in middle school where he’ll have to learn to navigate the outside world and socialize with other kids his own age. He encounters cruel bullies along the way to meeting new friends who learn to see Auggie for who he really is inside. His unique perspective on the world helps show others the importance of being differently-abled.

Can you imagine doing something that changes the world?

This short film is in German with English subtitles. Set in the 18th century, it tells the story of a woman who finds herself pregnant from her abusive, alcoholic husband who also happens to be having an affair with a younger woman. Throughout the film, she contemplates an abortion until a shocking revelation changes everything. 

Crescendo won 15 international film festival awards and took home Best Short Film at the 2012 Hollywood Film Festival. Pattie Mallette, mother of pop-star Justin Bieber, is the executive producer of the film.

Crescendo is a celebration of the strength, beauty, fortitude and dignity of women,” Mallette said.

Children of Men* 

As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children’s voices.

Set in 2027, this film by Alfonso Cuarón depicts a violent dystopian future where women have inexplicably stopped having children. 

The main character Theo (Clive Owen) is reluctantly drawn into helping an underground opposition group who asks him to help transport a woman named Kee out of London. Turns out Kee is pregnant and has become incredibly important to the survival of humankind. 

Stream on Amazon Prime.

*Not a family-friendly film. Rated R for intense violence. 

Instant Family 

Things that matter are hard. 

A much lighter film, Instant Family focuses on the trials and triumphs of foster care and adoption. A middle-aged couple, played by Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne, decide to dive into foster care. Through the process, they meet three siblings whose mother’s substance abuse issues put them in the system in the first place. Things get tricky when the siblings move in giving the couple a crash course in parenthood. It is an honest look into the real-life struggles of the foster care and adoption process, two institutions integral to the pro-life movement.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
