40 is a compelling new documentary that examines the effects of abortion on America over the last 40 years since Roe v. Wade. The film showcases interviews with dozens of pro-life leaders and presents abortion as the most important human rights issue of our time. 40 looks at both sides of this heated issue and addresses some of the strongest arguments for the pro-abortion position. 40 also provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and reports on the youth seeing them as the generation that will end abortion.
This film addresses some of the strongest arguments for the pro-abortion position such as when life begins and “it’s my body, my choice” countered by pro-life answers from a wide array of pro-life activists, leaders and youth. Twenty- eight year-old actress Jennifer Cadena, who stared in The Roommate, Crescendo, and Little Boy, narrates the 40 film.
Simply put, the 40 Film, produced by Pro-Life Champions, is one of the most compelling pro-life movies ever produced. It’s an inspirational movie that examines the effects of abortion over the last 40 years since Roe v. Wade. The film presents abortion as the most important human and civil rights issue of our time.
40 features more than 40 of the biggest names in the pro-life movement such as Joe Scheidler, Lila Rose, Star Parker, and Rebecca Kiessling. Serrin Foster, President of Feminists for Life, Ryan Bomberger, and Abby Johnson.
I found 40 compelling and engaging on many of the most important pro-life questions. It is professional and gets the audience to critically think about the crisis of abortion. It brings powerful testimonies from post abortion women, asks hard questions, and listens to the concerns and questions of pro-abortion activists on the streets, before providing valuable answers.
I would recommend this film for your school, parish or pro-life group as a resource to educate and inspire them about abortion. The who’s who of the American pro-life movement is interviewed, and it brings a wide berth of perspective and experience about dealing with one of the most difficult and controversial issues of our age.
