Pro-Life Champions knows the importance of educating the next generation of youth on the value of life, that family is first, and they are the ones that can restore the Culture of Life.
40 is a powerful pro-life documentary film that takes on the heated issue of abortion in our nation that refuses to go away 45 years Roe v. Wade. The film highlights well-reasoned and secular arguments against abortion and investigates the effects of abortion in our nation over the last 40 plus years. 40 lets women speak for themselves through experience on the reasons for their firm convictions about abortion.
The film also addresses some of the strongest arguments for the pro-choice position, and provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and men. The film captures the impact of abortion on women, men, families and society in an exquisite encounter with human dignity. It also showcases the annual March for Life and the youth as the generation that will end abortion.
Since its red carpet world premiere at the Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge, IL, on December 11, 2013, 40 has been screened in over 300 theatres, universities, high schools, and churches across the U.S and aired nationally and internationally on EWTN Global Catholic Network.
"40 is an emotionally powerful and intellectually stimulating must-see movie." – Movieguide, The Family Guide To Movie Reviews
